Take a journey to a totally different world as you float gently across the heavens surrounded by approximately 20 hot air balloons!  Experience the surreal sense of being suspended in time as you witness the maneuvers and grace of these Gentle Giants.  As hot air balloons are governed by the weather, your flight could last between 30 - 60 minutes and include views of Anderson's beautiful Lake Hartwell, the countryside of rolling hills, and maybe even the Blue Ridge Mountain profiles that are frequently seen on a clear day.  Celebrate your adventure with a traditional champagne celebration upon your return to earth. 

Hot air balloon flights are booked in advance and sold in the Balloon Ride Tent during the festival, however slots are limited.  All flights are weather permitting and you will need to read and sign a Flight Waiver.  Please download a copy here and bring the completed Flight Waiver to check in.  But first, please see For Your Safety section below. 

The cost is $200.00 per person and cash and credit cards will be accepted.   To reserve a hot air balloon flight in advance, please call one of the numbers above.
