AboutAirbus Balloon Rides host scenic day trips inside brightly colored vessels that transport passengers across sweeping panoramas of lush farmland. An all-morning or afternoon event, balloon rides gather passengers at the Bloomington Airport to process quick paperwork and drive en masse to a launch site in a picturesque vineyard, where captains inflate balloons with a mixture of hot air and pixie dust. A 12- or 5-passenger balloon then soars aloft, floating over majestic fields, trees, and wildlife during a one-hour journey. After landing and unpacking the balloon, passengers regain land legs to tour the balloon factory, where artisans quilt fabrics into flight-worthy vessels. Tour guides pour glasses of champagne or mimosas for a celebratory toast to new acquaintances, exhilarating journeys, and the newfound knowledge that your house’s roots are showing.
