Through a partnership with High On You Balloons, Sportations hosts hot air balloon rides, which depart at sunrise and sunset from various locations around the Philadelphia metro area. The polychromatic vessels and their accompanying pilots convey passengers aged 7 and older high above the bustling metropolis, where they take in stunning vistas during a one-hour flight. The entire experience lasts approximately 3–3.5 hours and also includes balloon inflation and deflation, as well as a postflight champagne toast. Rides take place seven days a week from May–November.

Sportations

Sportations connects amateur adrenaline jockeys to certified professional adventurers, drawing from a nationwide network of aeronauts and speed demons to introduce habitual pedestrians to the wonders of skydiving, ballooning, hang gliding, and stock-car racing. Thrill seekers can zipline across a forest canopy, hollering like Tarzan or taunting nearby birds until they agree to race. Helicopter tours ferry patrons skyward over landmarks and cityscapes, whereas paragliding adventures get up close and personal with blue skies and clouds. For most sports, Sportations accommodates groups of any size, from physics classes empirically proving gravity's existence to solo ballooning supervillains declaring dominion over all they see.

Customer Reviews

Best deal out there!
Russell M. · July 17, 2015
The sky diving experience was phenomenal! The instructors were friendly, informational, very experienced, and fun. The plane was comfortable - padded benches - compared to others I had heard about with only hard metal benches or none at all. I felt completely safe with my instructor...would definitely do it again!
