We are happy to announce that tethered rides will again be available at this year’s festival! A portion of the fee benefits the Kyle, Buda Kiwanis Club!
Festival attendees can purchase tickets on-site for $25 per person at the tethered ride tent, located in the balloon field near the lake. Tethered rides will be offered throughout the weekend (weather permitting*).
Advance tickets will not be sold and we will not sell actual hot air balloon rides.
Tickets will be sold on a first come, first serve basis and at the individual pilot’s discretion. Two hot air balloons will be available to provide tethered rides and can accommodate approximately 6-8 passengers per ride (depending on height and weight). Announcements will be made from the Main Stage when tethered rides open and close.
Tickets: only available for purchase on-site – Cash Only
Everyone who wants a tethered ride will be required to sign a waiver.
Passengers Requirements: At least 54 inches tall and must be able to get into a hot air balloon gondola (basket). Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent/legal guardian and must sign a release for the child. All passengers must be in good health. NOTE: These balloons are not certified by the Federal Aviation Administration to carry wheelchairs.
