Call Brian Rohr at 214-733-9915 to schedule your special occasion hot air balloon event!

Includes the choice of a hot air balloon that can accommodate an average of 3-4, 6, or 10 passengers per lift.  Each ride can last from as little as 1 minute up to 5 minutes in the air.  Once on the ground, the passengers are switched and the next flight lifts off.  This balloon can carry between 50 and 100 passengers per hour, dependent on wind speeds.

A tethered hot air balloon is secured to the ground or structure to provide passenger flights without the balloon flying away.  Rohr Balloons is highly experienced and well-equipped to perform tethered balloon activities for many different environments and conditions.  Our experience and tether systems allow us to accomplish successful tethers when conditions are less than ideal.

Hot Air Balloon Tether at Georgia's Berry College was a Huge Success!

There could not have been a better response to the rides. Everything about Rohr balloons was superb. They were on time (actually early), professional, and were very flexible with having to move locations when one proved to not be the right area. The balloon actually ripped on a tree, but they were super flexible and were able to have a new balloon up in just under an hour. We probably had over 300 people ride the balloon throughout the night.Thank you for such a wonderful event. We will definitely be looking into bringing this balloon back year after year for this event. I also filled out the campus activity card.

Rohr Balloons maintains a perfect safety record to date, liability insurance, and can provide additionally insured certificates upon request. Perfect for entertaining large groups of people at events such as wedding receptions, college events, private parties, company picnics, and community festivals.  A 75′-85’ tall balloon carries passengers up to 100’ above the ground.  Tethered rides are best scheduled for mornings and evenings (within 2 hours of sunrise and sunset) when the winds are the calmest and balloons can also easily be tethered after sunset, creating a glowing exhibition. Tethered Advertising 
with Rohr Balloons at your grand opening, special promotion, or tethered at a high traffic intersection, a hot air balloon will inspire a memorable brand impression. Tethered balloons are capable of being anchored down to the ground or floating above the rooftops.  When inflated after dusk, the balloon has it’s own night time illumination, actually lighting up the sky.
