balloon ride icon | Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic Boise Idaho


We love sharing the sport of ballooning …

It has never felt right to us that general public access to a balloon ride during a rally or festival has always had to be so limited. Usually sponsors, members of the media and those affiliated directly with putting the event on are the lucky few that get to take a flight … Not this year … At Balloon Classic in Boise and Balloon Stampede in Walla Walla, we’re making (what will be) a very limited number of passenger spaces available on a very strict first come first served basis.

So, if you’re looking for

The Best Hot Air Balloon Ride Opportunity in the Northwest

It only happens one time each year at these two festivals
and its called, V.I.P. Day !

So, if you would like to do something that very few people ever have an opportunity to do, you need to consider reserving your space at either this year’s Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic or Walla Walla Balloon Stampede on V.I.P. Day.

This is simply one of the most limited, and therefore elite, passenger opportunities in all of ballooning.

Of course you’ll still have a fun and interesting ballooning experience launching in a weekend flight from your home town balloon field, but If you would like to experience a launch with as many as almost fifty (50) other hot air balloons, than these two events are where you need to find your “Bucket List” experience.

Better still, when you purchase passage at either Boise’s or Walla Walla’s balloon festivals, two family friendly events, you are actually supporting the production of the event in these two great communities. (so) You need to book your space right away.

The cost this year is what it is at every one of our events, $250 per person and you get to become not just a passenger, but a “Patron” (sponsor) of the Balloon Classic or Balloon Stampede, at the same time; availability is always exceptionally limited so Do Not Delay, call now, our flights are always offered on a first come first served basis.
