The Anticipation is Building
Holiday balloon launch date has been moved again
Once again, the launch date for the Administaff Holiday air balloon has changed. The new date is Dec. 16th (knock on wood) at 12 p.m. for the first public rides.
Spanning 60 feet in diameter, the balloon holds up to 17 people and travels as high as 350 feet. On a clear day, you may be able to see all the way to the Gulf of Mexico. On a clear night, with holiday lights aglow, the view is sure to be breathtaking.
The balloon is anchored in the Jones Lawn at Discovery Green and rides are offered daily through Feb. 28. Rides last approximately 8-10 minutes and tickets range from $15 - $20 for adults and $10 - $15 for children.
To check hours and weather, call the balloon weather hotline at 646-827-6287.
