• UPDATED Monday 7/28
    We have closed online booking for Letchworth until Sep 1. We still have no reliable information from NYS about when we can resume launching from Letchworth. Our other launch sites remain open and can be booked normally. We apologize for the ongoing frustration of the closure due to COVID restrictions.
  • UPDATED Monday 6/29
    We have been informed by NYS and Letchworth Park that our business classification is not yet cleared to resume operations from within the Park. Therefore, we are still on hold at Letchworth. We have not been given specific information about when we may be cleared to resume at this location.
  • We have closed online booking at Letchworth through July 15, in hopes that by then we will be cleared.
  • Our other launch sites in Geneseo at the National Warplane Museum and all Finger Lakes locations are open and can be booked at this time.

Few hot air balloon ride locations rival “The Grand Canyon of the East.” The Letchworth Park gorge is magnificent, and provides an incredible backdrop for memorable hot air balloon rides. The view is spectacular, and the experience breathtaking!

Our launch site is located adjacent to the Middle Falls, one of the most picturesque locations within the park. The beautiful western New York countryside surrounding Letchworth is an incredible flying area. It provides a fantastic setting for your hot air balloon ride experience.

Letchworth Ride Availability

We schedule morning and evening flights Monday through Saturday, year-round.  We can often accommodate passenger groups even at short notice.  We have balloons ranging in size from 4 to 8 passengers. We are proud to offer a personal experience.  You may even reserve an entire balloon for your party with a private flight.  Our pilots are all FAA-certified commercial hot air balloon pilots. We can fly up to four balloons per flight period.  If you have a large group, we can accommodate up to 20 people for a ride.

About us

We are a local, family-owned, full-time hot air balloon business. In the spring of 2019, we purchased Balloons Over Letchworth from its longtime owner, our friend Sean Quigley. Although we have been flying around the Park area for many years, all our Letchworth flights now originate from within the Park itself. For more information or to request a date for your Letchworth Park balloon ride, please contact us today. We are excited to meet you, and to host your hot air balloon experience!
