If you’ve ever dreamt of flying high over the Orlando skyline like a Victorian-era aeronaut, you’re not alone. Whether or not that’s everyone’s exact daydream, hot air balloon rides in Florida are super popular and a great way to get a different perspective of your city. In Orlando, you can soar above Disney Springs for just $11.50 with this killer Groupon deal!
Originally priced at $20 for one person, this coupon cuts the price to just $11.50 for one person or $23 for two — a ride for two with your boo would normally run you $40, so peep this deal if you're looking for an affordable date idea.
The sky-high experience takes you above the trees to a lofty 400 ft., making it a great way to spice up your Disney trip and see the parks and landscape in a way you never have before.
The rides are offered by Aerophile, which can be found in Disney Springs, boasting the largest hand-painted helium balloon in the world. The ride lasts for about 8 minutes, giving guests a 360-degree view of Central Florida.
Rides are offered on a first-come, first-served basis and are directly impacted by weather. While reservations are not available, you have the chance to catch a ride anytime between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. every day.
Aerophile is based in Paris and custom-built the Aero30 for Disney. The balloon can easily fit up to 29 people and is filled with 210,000 cubic feet of helium, helmed by a certified pilot.
Aerophile was founded in 1993 by two 25-year-old engineers, Matthieu Gobbi and Jerome Giacomoni, who had a passion for lighter-than-air travel.
Their tethered gas balloon is actually the reinvention of the typical gas balloon, with the ability to fly faster than the original model.
This coupon, however, is only good for Disney Springs, so you won’t be soaring around the world in 80 days this time around.
