Whether you’re a thrill-seeker or a bit more reserved in what you call entertainment, heights are exhilarating. From roller coasters to mountain climbing, it seems like having a birds-eye view always has a bit of a risk attached to it.
If you’re looking for a lofty experience without all the fuss, the Orlando Balloon Glow will be celebrating it’s third annual event in November, and you can take a hot air balloon ride in Orlando for only $20!
Orlando isn’t called The City Beautiful for nothing, and the chance to admire it from the sky as the sun makes its descent is well worth $20. Don’t worry, the balloon is securely tethered, so there’s no risk of you floating away into the sunset.
While general admission is just $1, there are plenty of things to do on the ground if you’re just not feeling sky-high and would rather leave the balloons to your more adventurous friends. There will be plenty of food trucks, vendors, and family-friendly activities to keep you busy.
Orlando Balloon Glow even offers private and group flights. They can guarantee that you and your party will be the only ones aboard the balloon, though it is far more expensive than the festival prices.
This is a great opportunity to get your feet wet if you’re not sure you’d be in love with the experience. Although, we’re pretty sure you will be.
Tickets just went on sale this past weekend, so make sure you buy yours in advance for that $20 tethered flight. You can even go VIP for $50, which adds climate-controlled bathrooms, a champagne toast, and a free tethered balloon ride. Worth it!
