What does my ticket include?

You'll have access to live music, food trucks, bounce houses, our corn maze, dry tubing hills, Sunflower Field and other activities for the whole family. After the sun goes down, a colorful hot air balloon glow will light up the night sky! The 1859 Balloon Voyage will be open for an additional cost, weather permitting.

What should I wear?

This event takes place entirely outdoors. We strongly encourage you to check the weather forecast and dress appropriately. We recommend wearing comfortable shoes to navigate the festival grounds.

What happens if it rains?

Jupiter Flights is a rain or shine event, though rainfall may limit or change some activities. In the event of severe weather where it is unsafe to be outside, we do reserve the right to cancel. In the event of a cancellation, costs associated with a ticket purchase may be applied toward a future ticketed event or membership within a year of the event date.

Construction Alert

If you're heading to Jupiter Flights Balloon Festival, we want to make sure you're up to date with the latest lane closures at 146th Street and Allisonville. You'll want to give yourself extra time or find an alternate route to the festival. Keep updated on the current status of the project.

Will I be able to ride in any of the Hot Air Balloons?

We encourage guests to meet our pilots and engage in conversation, but the only balloon that guests are able to ride is in our 1859 Balloon Voyage.
