Starting at $250 per person
Request a Balloon Ride
Several different packages are available for one to four people.
Flights are scheduled just after sunrise, or in the hours before sunset. This is the time when the winds are calmest and most stable.
Flight safety requires not only nice weather, but also calm winds. If the wind or weather are not suitable for your scheduled flight it will be rescheduled. This is a normal part of ballooning and may even happen multiple times. A safe, beautiful flight is worth the wait!
$1000 (RE/MAX of New Jersey subsidizes half)
Request a School Program
Liberty Balloon Company specializes in presenting assembly programs to schoolchildren of all ages on the topic of hot air ballooning.
The balloon pilot will present a 30-minute presentation about the science, history, and operations of a hot air balloon. Then, weather permitting, they will inflate the balloon for the students so they can see a balloon in action up close and personal. If the weather is bad, there is an alternate indoor presentation that is just as exciting.
Please have approval from the school before you request a school program.
Request a Balloon Tether
"Tether" refers to the ropes used to hold the balloon in place. A balloon tether is a great way to utilize your RE/MAX hot air balloon to create a high-impact marketing presence at community events!

SPACE - 200 square feet, preferably grass, free of obstacles such as trees or power lines
WEATHER - No precipitation or possibility of precipitation developing during the tether

TIME OF DAY - Aim for the first two hours of daylight or the hours preceding sunset for best chances of light winds
