Ever wish you could reach up and touch the clouds? Now you can, in your very own hot air balloon! When you need a breath of fresh air, it’s time to drift off, flying high over the North End. Climb into a basket under one of the colorfully striped balloons, and you’re ready to soar!

Up, up, and away, more than a dozen feet high! Now you’re cruising, as your personal hot air balloon circles, floating up and around in a whooshing circle. You’ll enjoy a great view of the park on your mellow flight through the trees. Hey, sometimes it’s more fun to just slow down the pace.

Even though you’ll tilt just like a real hot air balloon, these balloons don’t spin. So this gentler ride is relaxingly suitable for just about everyone who enjoys swinging in the breeze and hanging out with the clouds.
