Float above the crowd in a Hot Air Balloon Tether ride at the Marshall County Blueberry Festival. Thursday August 29th, starting at 6:45pm.

About this Event

Join us at the 2019 Marshall County Blueberry Festival for Hot Air Balloon Tether rides. We will be offering ride for two different days, this event is for Thursday August 29th. A Hot Air Balloon tether is when the balloon is tied to the ground, lifts off the ground, and hovers 35-50 feet above the ground for several minutes, but does not launch and fly away. Like all Hot Air Balloon flights, this event is weather permitting.

One balloon will be doing tethered rides. The balloon is equipped with an easy access door. No climbing required to enter the balloon. The balloon is not FAA certified to carry wheelchairs.

The balloon can accommodate 4-6 people at one time (depending on combined weight maximum of 850 lb).

Tickets (must be purchased before hand):

$15 for adults

$10 for kids under 12 years old

This is a first come, first served event.

No refunds unless the rides are canceled due to poor weather. There will be no refunds if the ride start is delayed but rides still occur. We will update our Facebook page with weather information the day before the event.

Every passenger will have to sign a waiver.

Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent / legal guardian and they must sign a release for the child. There is no minimum height requirement, however the balloon basket is 46 inches tall. Adults are NOT permitted to hold a child in their arms during the tethered ride.

All passengers must be in good health at the time of the ride. If you are pregnant, recently released from the hospital, have current broken bones or casts, you will not be able to qualify to purchase a ride.

What To Know About Tethered Balloon Rides:

Tethered rides normally last 4-5 minutes.

Sometimes small children may be frightened by the balloon heaters, so little ones might not enjoy the experience.

There are a limited number of rides available. We expect demand to be high, so plan to arrive early. Tethered rides and operations may stop based upon safety concerns of the pilot/crew.

SAFETY is our #1 priority! The pilot and crew will closely monitor weather before and during the tether. If storms are within 50 miles of Plymouth or sustained wind speeds are above 6 mph during the tether we will not operate the ride for your safety.
