Why Soaring Sports Chattanooga for your Hot Air Balloon Ride?


There are many things out there that are worth trying at least once, and hot air ballooning is one of those things. It’s the type of adventurous activity that once you try it, you will want to do it again and again. As a pillar in the hot air balloon industry, Soaring Sports Chattanooga understands that concept to be true and that’s why we offer plenty of great reasons to get started with us today and stay coming back to us for every one of your vacations.

From our gift certificates to our group and holiday discounts, we give you every reason to make this great American pastime a hobby.

Whether it is here in Chattanooga, TN. or at one of our other great locations across the map, our staff will take the best routes so that you and your passengers can get the best views and take the best pictures that Mother Nature has to offer.

This is a wonderful way to spend a spring, summer, or fall day. Floating level with the treelines, you will be able to see an active wildlife that will amaze you. As we raise up to higher levels, you will get to see foothill mountain ridges that engulf the thriving city built around a river and railroad tracks. And although River City’s man-made buildings and bridges are impressive, there is nothing like seeing millions of years of natural forest beauty still in the works.

The whole experience should leave you and whoever comes along with you with a lasting memory of just how much the world has to offer. You can’t take in this type of visual bliss with your feet planted on the ground. You have to experience it from an open basket – with no windows – high in the air with plenty of fresh air to take in.

Come Visit us in Chattanooga, Tennessee!


Also known as the Scenic City and River City, Chattanooga became a big time solution for transportation in America. The first railroad system that was built back in 1850 and the Tennessee River, put the southeastern city on the fast track to being a people moving, money making transportation hub, a reputation that still holds today. The river is still used as a means for keeping commerce connected throughout the southern states, and the Interstates and railroad tracks that flow through the city keeps Chattanooga a booming place in the U.S.

The beautiful old school colonial style houses and buildings mixed in with the modern day architecture really makes this a city that promotes its own character. Home to the University of Tennessee, there is plenty of young life breathing into a city that is still wrapped in old traditions. Although an older city, it has never seemed to slow Chattanooga down. Gig City is an unofficial nickname that has been given to the city by its residents as they claim their hometown has the fastest internet service in the western hemisphere.

But with all of the fun you can have outdoors, being indoors on the internet might be the last of your worries. Hiking, biking, canoeing, and fishing are just some of the great outdoor experiences that the Scenic City has to offer. Sightseeing and spending some time visiting the many museums here might also capture your imagination. Home to many America’s firsts like the tow truck and passenger train, museums are a great way to find out what this great city offered this country to help it move forward. All and all, there is something here for everyone. Great daytime activities, a spontaneous nightlife, great bar and grilles, and good old southern comfort Mom and Pop restaurants, makes hot air ballooning with us just one of the activities you’ll find here in Tennessee.

Chattanooga Shared Balloon Rides


Soaring Sports Chattanooga offers the best ballooning experience with our Shared Balloon Ride option. This gives you a chance to grab a few of your closest friends, family, co-workers, next door neighbors – whoever you think will enjoy this type of adventure – and go and hit the skies for some of the most amazing sightseeing fun.

Chattanooga is located right on the Tennessee River in the valleys and ridgeways of the Appalachian foothills. This makes for some of the best outdoor views that America has to offer and one of the worst times to leave your camera at home. Tons of wildlife run free on the mountainsides of the Appalachian trails. The many different species of trees set color to the garden like landscape, and the ridgelines that have been carved out by millions of years of erosion from the Tennessee River look more like a piece of art than the earth’s natural wear and tear process.

We usually offer our shared balloon rides through spring until late fall, and we will take you up during any part of the day. You can catch a sunrise balloon ride which will give you a chance of watching the sun slowing climb over the beautiful landscape, or you can set up a time with us so you can catch the sunset. There may be nothing more visually stimulating than watching the sun change from a bright burning bulb of heat to a dark orange color of beauty as it gets ready to disappear past the horizon.

A lot of our customer also find fall to be a very visually stimulating time to take a Shared Balloon Ride. Looking out along the landscape as all of the trees are changing colors offers you a chance to take in gorgeous scenery that you might only have thought existed in pictures or books. But this is real and you can see it in the flesh. Even the spring offers you a great time of the year to take a balloon ride. With the smells of all of the blooming and pollinating plants and trees, you will soon realize why a lot of people think spring is the most magical season for love.

This is an experience that you won’t soon forget. We even encourage the participants to help us with the setup and teardown as part of your hot air ballooning extravaganza. We think it adds to the memories and the experience that you walk away with as a whole. This gives you a chance to get excited for the balloon ride itself and afterwards it gives everyone a chance to do a little hanging out and sharing with one another about what they will take away from the whole adventure.

We expect you to put aside at least 2 ½ to 3 hours of your time for this experience. Our staff and pilots are awesome to be around so you will be having a blast. Most likely we will spend about 60 mins in the air and the rest of time will be for the before flight preparation and after flight teardown fun. Upon request, we can do a champagne or juice toast, have snacks available, and possibly other options to help make the flight as enjoyable as possible. We will also pass out souvenirs to remember your trip by and frame-able flight certificates upon you competition.

We have baskets to fit different size parties, so when you call one of our Soaring Sports Chattanooga agents be sure to mention the size of the group you are planning on bringing along. We try to take up the most comfortable and suitable baskets for the group size. We want to make sure that everyone enjoys this unforgettable adventure with plenty of personal space so they can take the best pictures possible.

Chattanooga Balloon Rides - Private Balloon Rides in Chattanooga, Tennessee

Take a Private Balloon Ride with Someone Special


Booking a Private Balloon Ride is probably one of the most romantic things you can do for you and your partner. It’s a great way to start a date or end a date. With a toast of some champagne, you will get to enjoy the wonderful landscape views that a hot air balloon ride can offer.

Traveling upward to 3,000 feet in the air, you will be able to see a whole city moving quickly along in one eye full. The famous railways busy as usual, the river boats moving on about their daily routine, and of course the hustle and bustle of the expressway traffic will all be seemingly useless to you as you will be so far away you will barely hear the action. You will be either listening to the winds pass through the countryside or the peaceful thunder of the hot air balloon burners that help keep you afloat. Either way, you will have a chance to spend some time alone with that special someone and make some amazing memories.

With a basket fit just perfectly for the two of you, you will feel as special as two people in love ought to feel. We also offer Private Balloon Rides for couples as well, so if this sounds more like a double date type of activity, we can accommodate a perfect sized basket for that type of adventure too.

Sunrise private balloon rides are a great way to start out a planned day together and sunset rides are a great way to start out an evening date. We also love to take people up for special occasions. Birthdays, anniversaries, holidays are all great reasons to book a chance to make an already special day even better.

We even enjoy making your wedding day special. If you want to do something that will help you remember your special day forever, take your wedding vows and then solidify your love for one another with a trip in the sky through the Appalachian foothills. There won’t be a better romantic story to be told for years and years to come.

You’ll have a great time with our staff and pilots. They are all very friendly and knowledgeable and experts at what they do. They know you will be up there for a magical time together and they will do everything they can do to make sure that the whole experience turns out that way. This is just a great way for you and your partner to relax and get away from the everyday craziness of life for a while.

You can enjoy, take pictures, and experience Chattanooga from a point of view only possible from a hot air balloon basket. And we do go up sometimes when it’s cooler outside, so make sure to dress accordingly. However, the burners that lift up the balloon usually keep the temperatures quite cozy inside the basket for you and that special someone.

Chattanooga Balloon Rides - Chattanooga, Tennessee Tethered Hot Air Balloon Rides

Booking a Tethered Balloon Ride Experience for Everyone!


Here at Soaring Sports Chattanooga we also offer Tethered Balloon Rides which we think is an amazing chance to help spruce up any outdoor event. We also like to let our customers use our Tethered Balloon Rides for advertisement purposes as well.

Upon request, we can have a balloon envelope made up with your personal design on it. So no matter if it is your company logo, a charity event you are hosting, a city fair, etc. this is a great alternative to advertising at ground level or flipping the bill for a billboard. Maybe your store or company is having some type of blowout sale, a hot air balloon promoting that sale will really get people passing by to take notice and stop in to see what the buzz is all about. We can even make up banners with your company name on it or the event you are hosting. As we take care of the setup and tear down, this is a great way to let our advertising magic do its job while you work on more important things like event coordination or customers.

We also offer tethered balloon rides for events that aren’t about advertising but more about having fun. Chattanooga is a great place to have a Tethered Balloon Ride for an outdoor event like a family reunion or an anniversary. The Scenic City offers plenty of reasons to go up in the air and overlook the beautiful scenery. From the plateaus and valleys that surround the Tennessee River to the foothills and ridge sides of the Appalachian Mountains, gorgeousness is all around this historical southeastern Tennessee city.

We even take on wedding requests. With champagne toasts and photographers, we can make sure that you have a day that will be the most memorable day of your’s and your spouse’s life. This is an awesome way to do something different for a new couple’s wedding day. The break in tradition will give everyone who attended a story to tell for years to come.

For the most part, our baskets can take up to 10 people at a time. We spend a few minutes per each ride in the air before we descend back to ground zero, then we can take up another group of people. This process usually allows us to take up close to 100 people or more in an hour. Depending on your party’s size and how long you have booked us for, we should have no problem taking everyone up for at least one ride. If you are planning a very large turnout, if necessary, we can always accommodate a second balloon to be setup at your outdoor event. These details can be worked out when you give one of our helpful agents a call for booking.

Safety is always a huge concern for us. We monitor local weather conditions on a regular basis to make sure flying conditions are available. If we don’t think we can fly we can always reschedule for a time that suits Mother Nature better. This may sound like an inconvenience, but if we can’t fly, then most likely the weather won’t be good enough to hold the event you were planning outdoors anyway.

Whether it’s for a family friendly event that needs a little extra entertainment or you are trying to create a buzz by using our advertising balloons options, Tethered Balloon Rides can be one of your most lucrative options to accomplishing your goals.
