Free Hot Air Balloon Walk by Airborne Adventures
A balloon walk consists of a hot air balloon that is in anchored at the top end, and at the bottom end, and then inflated with cold air by use of an inflation fan.
Rather than standing the balloon with air that is heated by the burner, the balloon is kept inflated with just the cold air. A large heavy mat is placed over the 'skirt' at the bottom end of the balloon, making it easily accessible for children of all ages, including those in wheelchairs. The public can then enter and view the balloon from the inside (without shoes).
To make the experience even more fun for children, they will add large inflatable balls for the kids to play with while they are in the balloon.
