Hot-air balloons are favored the world over as stealthy and fast get-away vehicles for toothbrush thieves and cowardly blind-daters. Today's Groupon from Orlando Balloon Rides makes use of the balloon's capacity for leisure. Choose from the following options:

  • For $105, you get a sunrise hot-air-balloon ride, plus breakfast and a champagne toast (a $175 value).
  • For $59, you get a child's hot-air-balloon ride, good for ages four through 10 (a $125 value).

The ballooneers at Orlando Balloon Rides have been offering professionally powered balloon flights to Florida natives and visitors since 1983. The sunrise ride begins around 6 a.m. (depending on the time of year); you'll meet at the Ramada Orlando Celebration Resort and Convention Center in Kissimmee before traveling to a lush launching field to properly wake up and observe the folded balloon fill up with air. Once the bulbous vessel is appropriately aired, you'll ascend in the comfortable, padded-basket balloon over the treetops of Orlando and take in panoramic views of the area's geological wonders, from orange groves and swamps to theme parks, local wormholes, and area forests. After the ride touches down, a champagne toast will commence, and you'll journey back to the hotel for the ceremonial presentation of commemorative flight certificates and a competitive all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet throwdown. The entire experience lasts three to four hours, with an ample hour to an hour-and-forty-five minutes of flight time. This deal is good for a one-person adult admission; purchase two for a romantic first date or three for airborne reality-dating-show finales.

All of Orlando Balloon Rides’ passengers are lifted into the air aboard 2007 model balloons, fully equipped with cutting-edge safety technology, and piloted by experienced and FAA-certified air-people who double as engaging tour guides throughout the flight. The commercially insured balloonists boast a 100% safety record.

Orlando Balloon Rides

During 29 years of drifting through the Florida skies, Orlando Balloon Rides had already amassed an impressive fleet of gargantuan flying inflatables when a new balloon arrived. The product of an ambitious factory in Spain, the newcomer holds more than 400,000 cubic feet of hot air and stands as tall as an 11-story building. Four times the size of the average hot air inflatable, it's among the most massive hot air balloons currently flown in the United States.

Now reigning as a popular vessel for the company's sunrise tours, the mammoth balloon can fly away with a basket of 24 passengers as it commands the skies, dwarfing most clouds and giving the Goodyear Blimp an identity crisis. From any of Orlando Balloon Rides' baskets, passengers take in high-altitude views of Walt Disney World and the city's skyline, sights visitors rarely get to see from above. Each of the company's hot air balloons is piloted by an FAA-certified pilot who also serves as a knowledgeable narrator of the scenery below.

Customer Reviews

My wife and I had a fantastic experience this morning! I even enjoyed assisting with the set up and break down of the balloon. Mike and the crew were great! Highly recommend.

Excellent service from friendly folks. A delightful experience.
Laureen C. · June 23, 2014
All views are great but believe being on side pilot is facing is best. They do a good job in rotating the balloon so everyone gets a good view.
