Scheduled Balloon Ascensions, Tethered Balloon Rides, and Balloon Night Glows are subject to inclement weather and winds greater than 8mph. Balloons operate in the early morning and late evening. Balloons do not operate during the middle of the day due to the nature of thermals which are caused by the heating of the air in the atmosphere by the Sun.
