Notes about the Tethered Rides:
Tethered rides are our most popular attraction. So here are some things that are good to know.
Start time varies based on weather. Times are general and will be delayed if it is too windy.
First-come, first-served. Pay in line when it’s your turn. We do not sell tickets in advance or take reservations for the tethered rides because the start time varies.
We recommend not getting in line before the balloon begins setup, which will be when the weather conditions safely allow.
Once started will generally keep going until weather permits, or line is done.
Young children can go IF THEY are comfortable. Children under 2 discouraged. No infants.
