To take a trip on the AeroBalloon, visitors purchase tickets, enter the balloon gondola, and ascend up to 500 feet, where they can enjoy 360-degree panoramic views. After approximately 10 minutes, the winch reels the balloon back to terra firma. AeroBalloon is designed for safety. Helium, which is 100% non-combustible, provides the lift, and the balloon is attached to a winch, which is anchored to the ground. The balloon is never in free flight and can be installed and removed without a trace. Call the Fan Pier Balloon Line for the latest conditions, forecast, and schedule.
