We all know that Big Apple is famous for its Central Park, Coney Island, Hudson River, Manhattan, Times Square, and the Statue of Liberty. But there certainly is more to New York City than meets the eye with its distinctive metropolitan characteristics, architectural icons, and multicultural atmosphere.

Special places of note, aside from the ones previously mentioned, include Chinatown, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, New York Botanical Garden, Madame Tussauds New York, the iconic Flatiron Building, Grand Central Station, Yankee Stadium, Lincoln Center for the performing Arts, and a whole lot more.

If cultural immersion is your thing, you’ll never want for museums because NYC definitely has its fair share of impressive museum collections, such as those in the Museum of Modern Art and New York Hall of Science. The naturalist in you will feel right at home in NYC’s zoos and parks, such as the Bronx Zoo, New York Aquarium, New York Botanical Garden, and Bryant Park.

Being in The City that Never Sleeps means that any time of the year, you will surely find an excuse to be part of an event or holiday in NYC, whether it be a concert, food and drink fest, art movement, the New York City Marathon, or something traditional like New Year’s Eve at Times Square. So go ahead and drop by New York City!

At Soaring Sports New York City, we’ll help you identify the best season for a hot air balloon ride in Big Apple, so you can safely ride with us and enjoy the rest of your stay in this exciting metropolis!

“No Fear” Excitement with Tethered Balloon Rides


You can experience the excitement of a hot air balloon ride in New York City with significantly lesser danger looming in the horizon by booking a tethered balloon ride. You can enjoy this ride with a larger group of people, such as during a team-building exercise or a special big group outing, a meeting, a wedding, or any kind of party where the host wants to give guests a taste of a hot balloon ride with none of the risks of going totally airborne.

What You Should Expect During a Tethered Balloon Ride

Tethered hot air balloon rides are also perfect for passengers with a fear of flying who want to experience the thrill of a hot air balloon ride. A Tethered Balloon Ride requires a thorough inspection of the site where the hot air balloon will be anchored. The hot air balloon is kept securely fastened to the ground using high-tensile ropes and carabiners that ensure your ride does not stray from its “destination.”

However, for successful tethering to be accomplished, favorable weather conditions are required. The best time for “flying” a tethered hot air balloon is early in the morning or during late evening. The tethering area should be exceptionally wide, like a football field, and free from any obstructions and obstacles since a minimum of three anchor points are required during setup. The hot air balloon pilot is the final authority in deciding whether or not tethering is viable on a given booking.

Soaring Sports New York City Guarantee!

Once the hot air balloon is safely anchored to the ground and sufficiently inflated, groups of people included in the passenger’s list will then take turns going on their hot air balloon “ride” for a couple of minutes. Though the ride is short, they get a feel of what it’s like being up in the air. And make no mistake, not going completely airborne doesn’t take away the thrill factor in your ride.

Just like in any other hot air balloon trip, we encourage you to bring your camera or hire one of our pro photographers to take snaps of your tethered hot air balloon experience. Even when you know your ride is safely anchored to the ground, there’s still nothing like the feeling of soaring up in the air to heights of 100 feet above the ground and looking down at the great city of New York from your own unique vantage point. So go ahead and make a visual record of your experience with us!
