This was more than I could have ever hoped for! A hot air balloon ride has been on by "bucket list" since I was a kid and it didn't disappoint. The day was beautiful; our pilot and the owner couldn't have been more professional and gracious. A once in a lifetime experience with my friends!

The groupon made it an affordable event for me to take my twins on as a birthday adventure. A memory we all will have and enjoyed immensely

What You'll Get


Hot air balloon rides shatter the stork community’s monopoly on carrying humans in baskets. Democratize the skies with this Groupon.

Choose from Three Options

$499 for a hot-air balloon experience for four (a $1,280 total value)
$269 for a hot-air balloon experience for two (a $640 total value)
$139 for a hot-air balloon experience for one (a $320 total value)<p>

The experience includes the following for each person:

  • A one-hour hot-air balloon ride (a $300 value)
  • A balloon-factory tour with a champagne or mimosa toast (nonalcoholic beverages are also available) and hors d’oeuvres (a $20 value)<p>

A four-hour morning or afternoon event, the balloon ride gathers passengers at the Monroe County Airport to fill out quick paperwork before driving en masse to a launch site in a picturesque vineyard. There, captains inflate balloons with hot air before passengers climb aboard. The 5-, 12-, or 20-passenger balloon then soars aloft, floating over majestic fields, trees, and wildlife during a one-hour journey. After landing, passengers regain their land legs to tour a balloon factory, where artisans quilt fabrics into flight-worthy vessels. Tour guides then pour glasses of champagne or mimosas for a celebratory toast to new acquaintances and exhilarating journeys.<p>

About Airbus Balloon Rides


High above a lush vineyard, the morning sky brims with creatures of flight: an eagle, a large bumblebee, a pigeon that forgot how to land. These were just some of the sights Airbus Balloon Rides' owner Andy Richardson imagined would greet his future down-gazing passengers. He first fell in love with the roar of a hot air balloon's flame just before entering the second grade, and that passion has driven his dreams ever since. Ten years after buying his first balloon at age 14, Andy now commands a fleet of rainbow-colored balloons that come in standard and specialty shapes. These colorful vessels set the elevated stage for individual flights and tethered rides helmed by Andy and his talented team. Flights lift off at sunrise, in the afternoon, and at sunset, when the low sun paints an orange-red glow over water, fields, and reindeer still stuck on rooftops.

Back on land, Airbus Balloon Rides also educates visitors on hot air balloon creation inside their balloon factory, which welcomes tours. At the end of each tour, the guides lead guests in a champagne or mimosa toast with accompanying hors d'oeuvres, celebrating their skyfaring adventures together.
