Hot Air Balloon Rides
For all of our flights, we will meet a set location and travel to our launch site. We will then inflate the balloon. After the balloon is inflated we will float over Hendricks County for approximately an hour. After landing we will have a celebration toast before returning to our meeting location. Shared rides are perfect for those that do not mind sharing their experience with others. Our private flights are a little bit more intimate. You will have the basket to yourself with our pilot. These are perfect for a romantic occasion, proposal, or other special time.
Summer April 1 - October 31
Shared Ride - $200 per person
Winter November 1 - March 31
Shared Ride - $150 per person
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 50-80 feet. We can usually take between 24 and 48 people up per hour.
$750 per hour
If the event is beyond 30 miles from Danville, IN, there may be additional costs and mileage fees.
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.

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 thunderstorm 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 reschedule fee for private rides and $50 per person for shared rides. If the cancellation is made less than 24 hours prior to the scheduled ride, there is a $250 reschedule fee for private rides and $75 per person for shared rides
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
Because ballooning is entirely weather dependent, we will attempt to reschedule the event. If the event cannot be rescheduled due to factors beyond Marvel Ballooning's control, all payments made will be non-refundable. 50% deposit is required at time of booking. Full payment is required upon arrival for the event.
Gift card sales are final and non-refundable. Gift cards expire 1 year from date of purchase. In the event the ride or event must be rescheduled, the gift card will not expire as long as the initial ride or event was scheduled within 1 year of date of purchase.
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.
