Balloon Rides is York's longest running balloon operator, created by founder Tom Donnelly's unbounded enthusiasm for the sport of hot air ballooning. His 30 plus years of experience in flying and manufacturing hot air balloons, put Balloon Rides at the forefront of modern hot air ballooning. Now part of Adventure Balloons, another founding member of hot air balloon rides in the UK this provides you with the option to take your balloon flight from even more locations.
Our pilots have won both national, international and world ballooning awards, flown television and film celebrities, secured several national flight records, and made a number of 'adventure' flights crossing the English Channel, the Irish Sea and the Alps. Hardly surprising then that we offer to you unmatched expertise, an unblemished safety record, excellent service and above all, enthusiasm for our sport.
On a typical hot air balloon flight the adventure begins long before your balloon leaves the ground. You will be invited to take part in unpacking and inflating the balloon and will have a chance to meet and greet your fellow passengers before climbing aboard.
When your pilot is happy to launch the balloon his ground crew will release the tethers and retreat to the chase vehicle and your flight will begin. You will rise into the air and gently float on the breeze over trees and buildings, high above the fields and rolling hills of the English countryside, suspended in a woven wicker basket beneath a big, beautiful balloon.
Hot air ballooning is a truly memorable experience, and a hot air balloon ride ticket is a wonderful gift idea that is less expensive than you might think. We operate our balloons from launch sites in Yorkshire around the county's ancient Capital City of York and over the beautiful Lincolnshire countryside near Grantham, Stoke Rochford and Rutland Water.
