Balloon rides offer safe, aerial views of scenic landscapes without the hassle and veterinary bills of griffin ownership. Soar more smoothly with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get one ticket to ride the Aeroballoon at Kimball Farm in Westford (a $28 value). Today’s Groupon is valid for rides between the hours of 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. on weekdays, 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. on weekends.
Aeroballoon elevates adventurous patrons and their spirits 40 stories over the greater Massachusetts area in a tethered 20-passenger helium balloon. Cloud whisperers step into the gondola and strap on belt-like harnesses before a gentle liftoff, and their dirigible floats skyward at the relaxed pace of a sloth's kite. Riders relax and drink in the sights of Massachusetts and the rolling landscapes that encompass it. A high-tension cable connects the balloon to the ground at all times and offers a one-of-a-kind experience that cannot be re-created by bribing gravity to go on a 15-minute coffee break.
