Up, Up and Away!  Soar to new heights in Hershey, PA!  We’re officially the sweetest place to take your family and friends for a hot air balloon ride! Get a birds-eye view of the roller coasters, expansive farmland, local attractions, and even some wildlife. You’ll have an experience of a lifetime in Hershey, The Sweetest Place On Earth!

Plan on spending 2 1/2 to 3 hours for your hot air balloon ride from start to finish. Flight time is approximately one hour. Your balloon ride begins on the ground, where you can help the crew assemble the balloon and take some time for pictures. Then climb aboard to your balloon to set sail.

During your flight, you’ll be treated to majestic views of Hersheypark, Chocolate World, expansive farmland, Hershey, and Harrisburg. On a clear day, you might even see the headwaters of the Chesapeake Bay!

As your balloon ride comes to an end, you’ll often see families and children waving at the marvelous site. After your flight, you’ll return to your launch point at the AACA Museum in a comfortable air-conditioned van and be treated to a light snack and champagne toast. You’ll also receive an official flight certificate suitable for framing.

Make your adventure complete with a cruise through time from the 1890’s to the 1980’s with cars, buses, trucks, motorcycles and other memorabilia in unique period themed scenes at the AACA Museum, Inc.!  Our interactive exhibits for kids and changing featured exhibits make this a great destination for all ages and interests.

AACA Museum admission is included with your hot air balloon ride and open daily, year round!

Hot air balloon rides are also perfect for groups too.   If you’re having a meeting or event in the area, consider adding this to your agenda as a team building program.   Multiple hot air balloons can be launched at the same time or in succession to allow for larger groups to enjoy this experience together.  It’s also a fantastic option for Weddings if you’re planning that special day!
