Hot Air Corps Inc.  - Downtown Indianapolis: $150 for Hot Air Balloon Ride with Hot Air Corps Inc. ($300 Value)

Balloon animals may look cute, but even the horses are incredibly hard to ride. Board a more buoyant balloon with today’s Groupon: for $150, you get a hot air balloon ride with Hot Air Corps Inc. (a $300 value).

Since 1972, Hot Air Corps' experienced pilots have been elevating passengers on buoyant excursions over the idyllic countryside surrounding northern Indianapolis and Anderson. The volant voyage begins a half-hour before launch time, when passengers meet one of Hot Air Corps' FAA-certified pilots at a location determined by the speed and direction of the wind. After a short safety briefing, the tour takes to the skies with a gentle liftoff and ceremonial inhalation of helium. Because of the whimsical nature of the wind, each journey is unique in terms of its flight path, and as such, the landing point is uncertain. After about an hour of floatation over Indiana's sun-kissed cornfields, sparkling lakes, and flocks of wild, undomesticated Hoosiers, the cloud captain spots out a dry and grassy field free of crops and livestock for the balloon to land, before escorting exhilarated ballooners back to the launch point. The entirety of the airborne escapade typically lasts around 2.5 hours, with almost all flights leaving near sunrise or before sunset to avoid afternoon gravity bloat.

Hot Air Corps requires reservations and signed waivers to embark, and passengers should be aware that rescheduling may occur due to poor weather conditions. Flights occur every morning and evening during the flying season, from June to October when the weather is pleasant and flying swordfish are quietly hibernating.

Hot Air Corps Inc.

Hot Air Corps Inc.’s fleet of brightly hued balloons has bobbed above northern Indianapolis since 1972. The company’s FAA-certified pilots closely monitor weather conditions before clearing balloons for liftoff, ensuring smooth, serene glides. Depending on wind currents, bright orbs may drift toward Morse Lake or bob above Noblesville, furnishing groups with singular view of farmlands, forests, and lakes. Additionally, Hot Air Corps Inc. limits rides to four passengers, ensuring ample basket space to snap photos and high-five passing geese.
