Our commercial ride balloons launch from nearby wineries and join the private balloons in flight, giving you the unique experience of flying with over two dozen hot air balloons.

Balloon Ride Reservations and Hot Air Balloon Ride Pricing
We have limited passenger capacity, and reservations sell out months in advance. We typically bring 4 commercial hot air balloons from our fleet that carry a maximum of 26 passengers. We also have private hot air balloon rides during the week of the Balloon Stampede Hot Air Balloon Festival. Although most of the private hot air balloon pilots only fly in the morning as part of the festival, Seattle Ballooning’s award-winning balloon pilots provide both sunrise and sunset hot air balloon flights during the Balloon Stampede weekend.
Pricing can be found here on our booking calendar. Shared Walla Walla balloon rides range from $325 per person to $450 per person. Private Walla Walla flights range from $1400-$1800 per couple, depending on the experience. Hot air balloon rides during the Balloon Stampede weekend or pop-up balloon festivals typically have a 20% premium.
Shared Hot Air Balloon Rides
Our shared hot air balloon rides include the romance of a private flight with the addition of four to eight additional guests. Our hot air balloons have oversized compartments. Meaning you’ll have plenty of space with unobstructed views. You can select a shared sunrise or sunset flight. Both are amazing.
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. Get ready for panoramic views on this exciting high flying excursion.
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.
Private Hot Air Balloon Rides
We have intimate private hot air balloons for two and private group flights with guests up to 10. Many couples and families are interested in booking private experiences to celebrate those special occasions.
These private flights are luxurious and a great way to go on an adventure together. There’s no substitute for the intimacy of a private hot air balloon ride for two! For groups with older individuals or young kids we suggest booking a sunrise flight due to slow winds.
Whether you are celebrating an anniversary, engagement, checking ballooning off your bucket list, or another special occasion, we’ll make sure it is amazing. You’ll cherish your hot air balloon experience for years to come!
