Hot Air Balloon Ride With Wheelchair Access!

If you are looking for a great day out or adventures activity as a wheelchair user then why not try a wheelchair accessible hot air balloon ride?

Specially adapted baskets are now available which makes it easy to gain access and enjoy the scenery from a hot air balloon.

It may have previously been difficult to ‘wheel’ in and out of the basket but they are now available where one of the sides comes down and acts as a ramp – therefore it is just a case of pushing into the basket, and with secure brackets are able to remain seated in your own wheelchair.

Hot air balloon with wheelchair access are something which was once a rarity and not readily available in the UK. There are over 2 million wheelchair users in the United Kingdom so it is no surprise that activity and entertainment companies have decided to make an accessible basket – its maybe more of a surprise that it has took this long – only in 2012 is there an easy access hot air balloon!

A balloon ride and trip is an exhilarating and fun experience where you and your family or friends can sit in a basket as a large overhead balloon is filled with hot air causing it to rise above the surface. You will go between 400-500 feet up in the air and can travel for several miles.
