The SoaringSports.com Milwaukee Experience


Ever spot a bird passing by and think how magnificent it would be the see the world from its perspective, gliding effortlessly along? Short of growing wings yourself, hot air balloon rides are the best thing in relaxing air recreation that gives you views like you’ve never imagined, much less thought you would get to see! Maybe it was also a soaring bird that inspired the French Montgolfier brothers to invent the very first hot air balloon. With nothing but a silk balloon, now called the envelope, a wicker basket, and some smoke, the earliest hot air balloon was born. In the following 200 years, hot air ballooning has evolved to be a well known and sought after experience. From festivals to proposals and all the way to cross-country races, hot air balloons fill the sky more than one might think, with hundreds taking their inaugural journey each year.

Soaring Sports Milwaukee wants the privilege of providing you with that perfect balloon journey you have been pining after. With an expert crew, you’re guaranteed safe travels from start to finish, whether you’re on a Private, Shared or Tethered ride. Floating at thousands of feet can also be the surprise of a lifetime for that special someone with a gift certificate, not to mention you’ll have a stash of bonus points for years to come! You’ll get the ultimate hands-on experience from aiding in the inflation of the balloon, through learning how the balloon works in action in the sky, all the way to landing and deflation. And there’s no better place than the largest city in Wisconsin to view a diverse natural and urban landscape! With an attractive city, gorgeous landmarks, and a friendly crew, you and your loved ones are sure to skyrocket this vacation to the top of the list!

The Gorgeous Milwaukee Coastline


Ever hear that you can’t have your cake and eat it too? Well, that is definitely not the case when it comes to hot air balloon rides in Milwaukee, Wisconsin! Known as a great place on a great lake, the sprawling city lies on the shore of Lake Michigan, the sixth-largest freshwater lake in the world! It’s impossible to accurately describe just how beautiful 307 miles of water rolling beneath you can be as you ascend. The stark contrast in skyscrapers leading right to the shore creates a picturesque sight worthy of a postcard.

Nature surrounding the city welcomes you on foot as well! Walk along the bluffs of the lake, or traverse the shores of the Menomonee, Kinnickinnic, and Milwaukee rivers in a sturdy kayak on a clear afternoon. If you really want to feel the power of the wind, catch a ride on a sailboat from the harbor – just be sure to bring your life jacket!

The “genuine American city” isn’t just spectacular from the air. Milwaukee has experienced a tremendous upswing in recent decades, now boasting an array of attractions, arts, cultural neighborhoods, and annual festivals. City goers can check out a walking tour for a personalized expedition through the Milwaukee streets. For craft beer lovers, visiting the historic brewery in Miller Valley is a must!

No matter when you visit, the city of festivals is bound to have boisterous activities to attend. On a weekly basis, you can hear jazz in the park from miles around. Bringing children along or just a science lover yourself? Then you have to make pit stop at Discovery World, a state of the art, hands-on science museum lovable by kids of all ages!

Ballooning with Buddies


Grab your friends and your cameras because a Shared Balloon Ride is something everyone should enjoy at least once! If you’re not afraid to join up with an awesome group of equally enthused passengers, then a Shared ride promises to be a day of awe and laughter. By far the most popular and affordable package, a Shared ride allows open reservations on a particular day. Depending on how many want to fly that day, the crew will supply a safe and sturdy basket and the group is almost ready for take-off!

Following an informative orientation, adrenaline begins to build as you depart for the launch site. Excitement heightens as you exit the bus to see the massive and colorful envelope spread out on the ground before you! Now’s the time to start snapping those photos because you won’t want to forget a minute of this experience! Daring guests can get hands-on and aid the crew in the inflation and set-up process. The envelope naturally holds a lot of air and you want the crew to perform all safety checks, so expect to spend around 30 minutes at the launch site before liftoff. Before stepping into the basket, make sure to grab the right attire. Thanks to Lake Michigan, Milwaukee has some hot, sticky summers and frigid, windy winters with daily conditions that can change suddenly. Depending on when you visit, dress accordingly in layers!

Once at full altitude, you can expect to see the steep bluffs creating the outline of the great lake’s shape, a mix of vibrant moss and sand as the water meets the shore. A stronger breeze makes the top of the water appear dusted with snow piles as the waves break over themselves. Recently built skyscrapers stand up to the vastness of Lake Michigan, a testament to the growing economy of the city. No other city offers such an array of imagery during a single hot air balloon ride! Now do you see why we suggest you bring a backup memory card for your camera?

As the jet streams drive you on and you near the end of your trip, the pilot will begin to assess the area for a landing spot. Thanks to his many flights and knowledge of the area, he spots one quickly and prepares you for a soft landing. You may have to crouch or sit in the basket for a softer landing, so no need to fret if you’re asked to change position! After touchdown, it’s time to get hands-on again as the pilot releases the hot air slowly from the envelope. If you’re lucky enough to have photo storage space remaining, take more shots to hang over the mantle! All good things must come to an end, however, and the crew will pleasantly escort you back to the launch site with your newly made friends, where we’re happy to help you book your next trip on the spot!

All of these differences equal many more rides in a short amount of time for your party. For employers looking for a team bonding experience or simply to reward employees for hard work, tell us when and where to be, and easily become the nation’s favorite boss! We’re happy to do a weekend flight, or you could go the extra step and give your group the day off to fully enjoy the balloon experience!

If you’re looking to top last year’s fundraising record for your favorite charity, increase attendance by promoting a tethered balloon ride! Then, charge passengers a small fee to offset the rental cost. With so much intrigue garnered by hot air balloons, there are no limits to how much you can raise! However, we do ask you to pay a minimum fee on the rare occurrence attendance is too low.

Tethered flights are also ideal for outdoor family events or birthday parties! Your kid will be the most popular guy in 6th grade after he shoots his friends 100 feet into the air, and then gives them cake and ice cream! Entice relatives you haven’t seen in a while to hit the next event when they learn they can literally take flight with their family! As long as you have an open space, the possibilities are truly endless! Not convinced or not sure where to start with such an idea?
