An Aero30 tethered gas balloon rises 400 feet above the grounds of the Downtown Disney® Area. The balloon’s outer surface features hand-painted silhouettes of Peter Pan, Dumbo, Aladdin, Jasmine, Buzz Lightyear, and Tinkerbell. Its 19-foot diameter gondola can hold up to 29 passengers and a pilot, who guides the balloon skyward with the help of up to 210,000 cubic feet of helium. Visitors hover for 8 to 10 minutes while enjoying a breathtaking ride.

Aerophile

In 1993, two 25-year-old engineers, Matthieu Gobbi and Jerome Giacomoni, pursued mankind’s dream to evolve into kites when they reinvented the tethered gas balloon, which enables faster rides than the typical gas balloon. With several models to choose from, their balloons have established themselves as attractions in more than 60 places around the world, including Paris, Berlin, and Angkor Wat Temple. Renowned amusement parks, such as the Walt Disney World® Resort and Disneyland Paris® Resort, use Aerophile’s innovative balloons to introduce their visitors to the clouds. With enough space to seat up to 29 passengers, the tethered aircrafts climb up to 400 feet into the sky with the help of up to 210,000 cubic feet of helium, providing breathtaking views of the surrounding attractions and landscape.

    “I would recommend others to call ahead to see if the balloon is scheduled to go up. We went on 3 separate occasions just to find out when we got there that there was a storm over 20 miles away and the balloon would not be going up. ”
