HOT AIR BALLOONS & HELICOPTERS



Experience these magical giants up close. A Night Glow is a gathering of hot air balloons that inflate at night. Gates open at the Fredericksburg Polo Club at 4PM and Balloon Passholders can get their Helicopter or Hot Air Balloon Rides (weather contingent). Weather permitting, Hot Air Balloon Glow & Tethered Rides available. Please manage your expectations. We have 4-6 balloons. We over communicate this as every year, regardless of how much we post and communicate, some guests come expecting to see 100 balloons. Next, if the winds are over 5MPH we will not be able to launch balloons. After our investment, nobody wants to inflate the balloons as much as we do. We will do so as soon as it is safe to do so. There is not an ulterior motive behind the scenes. We must follow safety standards and protocol. As the winds die down, the Balloons will begin to inflate. Hot Air Balloons are EXTREMELY weather contingent and may be grounded for safety or weather, therefore come prepared. If balloons are unable to activate due to safety, you can automatically upgrade to a Helicopter Ride!
