May I ride in the Hot Air Balloon?

[UPDATED 2021-July-02]
Note: Due to the increased likelihood of inclement weather, Hot Air Balloon Rides by Austin Aeronauts will not be able to participate in the 2021 Red, White, & BOOM Festival. For the safety of Guests, partner vendors, and Team Members, we appreciate understanding with this unfortunate but necessary decision.

We will have a tethered hot air balloon ride by Austin Aeronauts hovering up to 30 feet above the ground. This is an exclusive experience for Typhoon Texas Season Pass holders. Hot air balloon rides are available Saturday only for the first 100 Season Pass holders who sign-up. Sign-up will take place after entry in the Park. This is first-come, first-serve. Rides will take place from 5:30pm to 8:30pm and are weather permitting.
