Hot Air Balloon Rides
Go up in a hot air balloon during our daily balloon lifts! Float around the cool morning air. Enjoy the scenery!
Passengers will proceed to the Balloon Fiesta Information Booth — it’s right inside the grounds, after the entrance — where they will be escorted to the inflating balloons. They can chat with the pilots (almost all of them would come from all over the world) and take photos. Once they are fully inflated and the weather is conducive to a flight, we lift off!
Ride tickets are US$ 350 per person. Please take note that ride tickets do not cover the PH₱ 500 entrance fee (Gen Ad). A separate entrance ticket must be purchased. Each participant will be asked to sign a waiver in the presence of a witness before joining the flight.
- Balloon Fiesta Hot Air Balloon Ride tickets purchased on-line are E-Tickets. You will be asked to present a copy of a purchased E-Ticket to avail of a hot air balloon ride. Failure to do so will result in refusal of carriage for which The Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta Foundation (PIHABFF) cannot be held responsible. Your purchase and contract are made directly with the PIHABFF which is responsible for resolving any issues with you.
