Hot Air Balloon Rides
For all of our flights, we will meet at our office North of Brownsburg. We will then inflate the balloon in the yard next to the office. After the balloon is inflated we will float over Southern Boone and Northern Hendricks Counties for approximately an hour. After landing we will return to our meeting location and have a celebratory toast. All of our flights are private flights. You will not share the basket with people other than your pilot. These are perfect for a romantic occasion, proposal, or other special time.
The price is per ride. The smaller balloon includes up to 3 passengers or 550 pounds of passenger weight. The larger balloon includes up to 5 passengers or 900 pounds of passenger weight. The weight limit is subject to weather conditions and the ride may be rescheduled depending on temperature. We typically operate between April 1 and October 31. If you are looking for a flight outside of this time, please call our office to discuss your needs.
Hot Air Balloon Tethers
Hot air balloon tethers are great for parties or corporate gatherings. We tie the balloon to 4 anchor points and allow the balloon to float up about 50-75 feet. We have two different balloons that can take up to about 60 people per hour.
Each event is unique and we would love to discuss the needs of your event. Please contact us directly to discuss the needs of your event.
Weddings and Vow Renewal
Our Chief Pilot is licensed in the State of Indiana to perform weddings. We can do the ceremony inflight. We can also do the ceremony and then take off from the wedding site. It can be difficult to fly into a venue as the winds can be unpredictable.

Corporate Events and Advertising
We have the ability to attach banners to both our basket and our balloon. There is nothing more attention-getting than a flying billboard. We can also take some key employees during advertising flights. These are great for company promotions and employee incentives. Our balloon holds a 27 foot by 14 foot banner on the side,

WEATHER FLIGHT CANCELLATIONS
The sport of ballooning is entirely weather dependent! We do our best to contact you as soon as the need to reschedule for inclement weather arises. As a general guideline, if the winds are greater than 6-8 mph on the surface or 20 mph above a few hundred feet, or it is raining or there are thunderstorms in the area, in the interest of safety, we will cancel and reschedule our earliest convenience. The pilot has the final authority to cancel a flight.
PASSENGER FLIGHT CANCELLATIONS
If it becomes necessary for you to cancel your flight, we will reschedule it for the next available date.
For cancelations initiated by the passenger, cancellations made beyond 3 days prior to the scheduled ride, there is no charge to reschedule the ride.
If the cancellation is made less than 3 days but more than 24 hours prior to the scheduled ride, there will be a $100 rescheduling fee.
If the cancellation is made less than 24 hours prior to the scheduled ride, there is a $250 rescheduling fee.
We will gladly refund reservations made within 30 days of the original scheduling of the ride. The refund will be made in the original payment method and to the original purchaser. There will no refunds after the originally scheduled date.
TETHER, PROMOTIONAL, AND SPECIAL EVENT CANCELLATIONS

Full payment is required upon arrival for the event.
Gift card sales are final and non-refundable. Gift cards are valid for as long as Marvel Ballooning is in business.
THE FINE PRINT
All hot air balloon event reservations require full payment at the time of booking. Payment methods include cash, credit card, or personal or business check. If any payment is returned for insufficient funds, a 10% fee will apply plus any service charges incurred.
