Options for everyone at
We recognize that hot air ballooning is not something you do every day, so you probably have a lot of questions, concerns, or doubts. Whether you’re considering booking a ride for yourself, or purchasing the experience for someone else, our goal is make sure you and your guests have the best ballooning experience possible. So, call us today for more information or to book your ride.
Shared Balloon Rides
This is one of the most popular options, especially for the cost-conscious. You’ll save money by sharing your basket with others, so bring your own small group, or let us pair you up with other passengers. Either way, you’ll enjoy the same spectacular views and experience the same amazing sensation of floating effortlessly on the breeze. Create lasting memories with your friends and loved ones!
Private Balloon Rides
This option is ideal for anyone who is seeking a memorable, romantic experience. Ride in your own exclusive basket where the only stranger will be the pilot. Perfect for honeymooners, long-married couples, anniversary celebrations, or anyone wanting to get away from it all. Experience the peace and solitude of floating above the clouds. What a wonderful way to collect your thoughts and find inner peace.
Tethered Balloon Rides
This is the ideal option for balloon rides at special events or for drawing visitors to your location. Hot air balloons are highly visible, even when they’re moored to the ground and only ascend a few hundred feet, so offering short tethered balloon rides is an excellent, creative, and fun way to draw crowds to your special event. Also perfect for weddings and family reunions.
A Biloxi hot air balloon ride is the perfect gift for that hard-to-please person in your life, or for that friend of yours who already has everything. It’s often said that experiences are more valuable than material possessions, so consider surprising your loved one with an incredible ballooning experience. Check out our gift certificates if you’re looking for a gift that will make a lasting impression.

Explore Gulfport and the beautiful Mississippi Gulf Coast
There’s no better way to appreciate the beauty of the Gulfport-Biloxi area than from a hot air balloon. Soar over the harbor and resort-lined coast. Glide above the rooftops of Biloxi’s beautiful historic homes. Ballooning will provide you with a unique perspective of this charming Southern city which is known for its hospitable residents, resort casinos, and mild winters. And once you’re back on the ground, check out all that Biloxi has to offer. Try your luck in one of several casinos or laze the day away on the beach.
If sightseeing is more your thing, there are several museums you’ll want to include in your visit: the Maritime and Seafood Museum, which includes fascinating exhibits on the history of the area’s maritime economy and owns two 65-foot schooner replicas that you might see sailing around the Mississippi Sound, and the Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art, home to an interesting display of ceramics and abstract art. If you’re there between April and October, you may want to catch a ferry to Ship Island – just 12 miles off the coast – to take a guided tour of the very impressive Fort Massachusetts, or simply enjoy the ocean scenery. Finally, you won’t want to miss the historic Biloxi Lighthouse, the Hurricane Katrina Memorial, or Beauvoir, retirement home of Confederate President Jefferson Davis. And of course, being on the coast, Biloxi is famous for its fresh and tasty seafood. Cap off your stay with a visit to one of the many seafood restaurants overlooking the harbor.

Shared balloon rides are for everyone!
Taking a shared balloon ride means that you’ll be joined by other passengers who have also booked a shared ride in the same balloon basket. The balloon baskets, which come in various sizes in order to accommodate larger or smaller groups, are built with safety and comfort in mind and feature padded sides and compartments, so each passenger will have the same amount of space. This is the most popular option.
Shared rides are available year round, every day of the week. Although the ride itself will last about an hour (depending on the wind), plan to spend about two and a half to three hours for the experience. Here’s how it works: We will meet up just before sunset or just before sunrise because that’s when the wind is the calmest. (For hot air ballooning, it’s essential to have perfect wind conditions.) Before you depart, you can help the flight crew get the balloon ready, ask questions, or even have your photo taken with the captain.
Once we depart, you’ll float with the wind to wherever the wind wants to take you – so sit back and enjoy the ride. Looking down, you’ll see rooftops and treetops, fields and neighborhoods, forests and farms. If you live in the area, you can try to spot your house or other familiar places. Expect to see birds flying by. You’ll go as high or as low as the weather permits, but whatever the altitude, the ride will be peaceful and beautiful and provide you with a unique perspective of the area – a view you can only acquire from a hot air balloon. Refreshments will be provided.
There’s no telling how far we’ll go or where we’ll land because, again, it’s all based on the wind. But don’t worry, we won’t get you lost! As you’re flying along, a ground crew will be chasing the balloon. Their purpose is to bring us back to the launch site in a comfortable air-conditioned van once you’ve come down. And coming down from a balloon ride can be as exciting as the ride itself! The pilot will find a field or a park, or even someone’s yard – any place that’s appropriate to land a gigantic balloon and is safe.
Riding in a hot air balloon is such a unique and exhilarating experience. And seeing a hot air balloon is always a treat for those on land as well because it’s definitely not something they see every day. Can you imagine waking up to see a brightly colored hot air balloon gliding slowly over your rooftop? It’s like something out of a storybook or dream. Children often come running to greet the pilot and passengers as we glide gently to the ground.
Once you get back to the launch site you can say goodbye to the new friends you’ve made and you’ll receive a frame-ready certificate to commemorate your experience.

Make lasting memories on a private balloon ride!
Reserve your private balloon ride if you want to share a special experience with someone close to you. These exclusive rides are very romantic – ideal for an anniversary celebration, honeymoon activity, or just a chance to get away from the stresses of everyday life with your significant other. Thinking about popping the question? What a perfect opportunity in which to do so! Imagine floating on the breeze next to your significant other with the beautiful colors of sunset or sunrise around you, watching the world from above. (Of course, the pilot will be there to ensure your safety, but don’t let that stop you from enjoying this private time.)
We can arrange your private hot air balloon rides every day of the year, so if you have a special occasion, such as an anniversary, coming up, you might want to consider celebrating it in the most romantic way possible. You should plan on spending two and a half to three hours for the entire experience, although the ride itself will take about an hour. Before the ride, you’ll have a chance to meet the captain and crew, ask them any questions you might have, and help them get the balloon ready, if you so desire. (Inflating the balloon is a pretty spectacular experience in itself.) You usually meet up with the pilot about an hour before sunset or sunrise because that is when the winds are calmest, and having calm winds is essential for a successful hot air balloon ride. Plus, it’s a wonderfully romantic time to float in the air with your loved one, with vibrant shades of pinks and purples dappling the sky all around you.
Once the balloon is fully inflated and checked for safety, you and your loved one will climb aboard with the captain and off you’ll go. Up, up, into the sky, leaving your cares and worries behind. Depending on the wind and other climatic conditions, you’ll go as high as the clouds or coast just above the tallest treetops. Now’s the time for you to sit back and relax and enjoy the sensation of floating with the breeze, to admire the birds flying by, to gaze down at the world unfolding beneath your feet. You might even be able to spot your house or other familiar places. The view from a hot air balloon is truly unparalleled. This will be an experience you’ll remember forever.
Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end. When it’s time to descend, the captain will maneuver the balloon into an appropriate landing space such as a park or a field. There you’ll meet up with the chase crew who will have been following you from the ground in a climate-controlled van to bring you back to the launch site. Before saying goodbye, you will have time for a champagne toast with the captain and crew, capping off a truly romantic and extraordinary experience! Although the ride and the experience of effortless floating may be over, the memory will never fade.
It’s always best to reserve private rides in advance, so call us at 1-855-266-7627 as soon as you can with any questions or to make your reservation.

Offer tethered balloon rides at your special event!
Tethered balloon rides will be a great hit at your next special event or festival! Hot air balloons are colorful, unique, and eye-catching, so consider this option if you want to draw crowds or are looking for a powerful way to publicize your event. Mentioning hot air balloon rides will really make your event marketing materials stand out by attracting curious visitors. Or, just wait for people in the Biloxi area to see the balloon rising above the trees again and again, and they’ll come to investigate – and they’ll probably want to have a ride themselves! (For added publicity, some of our independent balloon contractors can attach a company banner to the basket, so that everyone will know who’s responsible for bringing such joy to the area!)
With tethered balloon rides the pilot and crew bring the hot air balloon to your location, inflate it, and anchor it to the ground using a system of Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approved ropes and carabiners. Then, with the balloon firmly tethered, they will provide – to your guests or to the public – short ascents of about 50 to 100 feet, (altitude varies based on a number of factors such as weather, terrain, and height of anchor points). Each ascent will last a few minutes and the basket will hold three to four adult-sized people (depending on weight), so they should be able to easily accommodate around 100 guests in two hours. Depending on the kind of event you are having, you may want to recoup your cost by charging riders a small fee. Previous customers have found that folks are willing to pay between $15 and $25 each for a ride.
These packages start with a two-hour tether time minimum and require a wide open space, such as a grassy sports field, in which the crew can safely park the vehicles and tether the balloon. This area needs to be free of trees, power lines, antennas, or anything else that might pose a safety risk. You will also need someone on hand for the course of the tether time, setup, and take down, to oversee crowd control and organization.
So, now that you know a little bit more about the tethered rides, why don’t you give us a call to set up a site inspection? Our affiliate ballooning pilots can make sure that your space is suitable and answer any questions you might have about the logistics involved in bringing a hot air balloon to your site. If you want to make your next corporate event a big hit or to publicize your business at an upcoming festival, this might be the right option for you.

Hot air balloon rides make great gifts
Sure, flowers, chocolates and electronic gadgets make nice gifts – but they don’t last forever: They wilt, or melt, or get eaten, or break, or go obsolete way too soon. Plus, we’ve all received them – and given them – many times before. So, if you want to give something different this year – something unique and unforgettable that will lead to memories that last a lifetime – consider giving a gift certificate for a hot air balloon ride. They are great for all occasions – holidays such as Christmas, New Year’s, or Valentine’s Day; birthdays, weddings and anniversaries, or just to say “I love you.” Whatever the occasion, if you give a gift certificate from Soaring Sports, the recipient will know that you cared enough to really put some thought into it.
In addition to being a thoughtful way to recognize a special anniversary, holiday, or birthday, our gift certificates can also serve in the workplace. They work well as employee incentives and bonuses. Do your employees produce more in a competitive environment? Consider running an office-wide competition in which the gift certificate will be rewarded to the employee who provides the best customer service or closes the most sales. Our gift certificates can provide a real incentive for that extra push. Additionally, they make great surprises if you want to thank an employee or coworker for going above and beyond the call of duty.
Here at Soaring Sports, we offer gift certificates for both shared rides and private rides, so it’s up to you and how much you want to spend. Either way, certificates are valid for two years from the purchase date and are accepted at over 100 of our affiliate hot air balloon ride providers. Certificates are fully transferable from person to person, so re-gifting is always possible (although transferring locations may entail a small transfer fee). Customer service is available at 1-855-266-7627 seven days a week, so gift recipients can call with questions or to make reservations at their convenience.
