Seattle Hot Air Balloon


You may only take one hot air balloon ride in your life. Make it luxurious.


Our morning (or evening) hot air balloon rides begin at the Muckleshoot Casino, just a short drive from Downtown Seattle. Once all guests have arrived, we’ll hop into the chase vans and head out to one of our private ballooning launch sites (a 10-minute drive).

While traveling to the launch site, we will share some fascinating hot air balloon history and provide a safety orientation. Upon arrival, our crew will pull the hot air balloon equipment off the trailer, and you’ll experience the balloon come to life!

During the Flight

Once everyone has climbed into the balloon basket, the burner will surge, and you will slowly lift into the air. As you move effortlessly with the winds, you will enjoy the views of rivers, lakes, and beautiful farmland from 3,000ft – 5000ft.

Hot air balloon rides are a fantastic way to see the beauty of Seattle.You will see downtown Seattle, Tacoma, Lake Tapps, Auburn, and the beautiful Cascade and the Olympic Mountains. The highlight of the flight is experiencing the majestic Mt. Rainier. Typical hot air balloon rides travel 6-10 miles and last right around an hour.

During the flight, your pilot will be your knowledgeable tour guide. They’ll offer information on the local sceneries and answer any questions about ballooning that you may have.

Post Flight

After a smooth landing, we’ll celebrate your experience with a true French hot air ballooning tradition. No balloon ride is complete without a proper toast and good champagne.

You’ll drink delicious aged champagne along with pre-packaged luxury chocolates. The whole experience lasts two and a half hours, but the memories you will make will last a lifetime.

Seattle Ballooning’s hot air balloon rides are regarded as one of the ‘Best Balloon Ride in the Northwest’ with views of Mt Rainier, Mt. Saint Helens, Auburn, Lake Tapps, beautiful rolling farmland…and much more. Fly with us and experience the breathtaking views yourself!

Shared Hot Air Balloon Rides

Our shared hot air balloon rides includes the romance of a private flight with the addition of four to eight additional guests. Our hot air balloons have oversized compartments.You’ll have plenty of space with unobstructed views.

With a maximum of eight to ten guests in the basket (plus the pilot), you’ll get a personal and safe experience with the luxury of flying in a commercial-grade hot air balloon.

Helping with the setup and takedown of the hot air balloon isn’t required, but we find many guests enjoy being involved in the process of inflation and pack-up.
