Another Hampton landmark is the Virginia Air and Space Center, the official visitor center for NASA’s Langley Research Center.

Would you just love to experience the picturesque Rapid City skies with friends? We offer Shared Balloon Rides that make the perfect package for those not wanting to ride alone or in a more intimate setting.

Shared rides are great for networking and building new relationships, as well! If you are concerned about being in a basket with people you do not know or who are not all part of your group, rest assured that you would not have time to notice sharing a basket with others outside of your group.

If you are having a get-together with your coworkers or want to include something different at a bachelor or bachelorette party, this is the perfect balloon ride for you!

These trips are something that you will never forget! You will have a good time and create memories and share in laughter.

The balloon baskets are very cozy and cushioned, and everyone has the same amount of space to take in all of the beautiful views surrounding them!

Rapid City Balloon Rides - Rapid City, South Dakota Tethered Hot Air Balloon Rides

Tethered ballooning is a safe flight for fun seekers!


Tethered balloon rides are such a unique experience. Often, you find tethered hot air balloon rides at balloon festivals. It’s also a very popular way of adding fun and excitement to any large gathering of people, such as wedding receptions, corporate parties and family reunions. A tethered balloon ride boards a few passengers, then goes aloft to a low altitude, while remaining tethered to the ground using straps or lines. Ideal for people with fears of flying or heights or families with small, school-aged children, it is the safest possible way to experience a hot air balloon ride. Tethered rides are often popular at hot air balloon sites or fairs and are especially appealing to families and small children. If you want to allow your children to experience a hot air balloon ride with you without being actually released to fly off into the sky, tethered rides are perfect for this. We love to recommend this type of flight for families with smaller children.

Tethered Balloon Rides are very exciting, as they give you the opportunity to experience the ride without ever having to fly high in the skies. Are you afraid of heights? Scared about the safety issues of actually flying in a balloon? While Rapid City hot air balloon flights are very safe, we want to make sure that everyone feels like they have an option suitable for them. That’s why we offer tethered rides, in addition to the shared and private rides.

So, how does the actual experience go? It begins with the pilot and crew bringing a hot air balloon(s) to your location, and inflate and operate the balloon onsite. They then will use a series of ropes to hold the balloon in place during the time the balloon is in operation. A tethered balloon is still classified as a flight operation and all of the local and FAA regulations apply. A pilot might come out to check that your location is suitable. On a day when wind and weather cooperate, a tethered hot air balloon will typically rise to a height of about 50 to 100 feet. Additionally, it is best to fly within two hours of sunset and sunrise, as the winds are calmest, which is 5 mph or less. Anyone in good health can ride in the tethered balloons and experience balloon flight, even small children.

tethered ride at 1-860-352-0600!
