    Definitely doesn't live up to the hype or name... Pretty lame... Mostly just a bunch of soccer and baseball fields. The entrance isn't very "grand", if at all noticeable. It's just okay.

    PSA: Rides will no longer be free beginning 4 April 2013. Balloon flights will cost $10 for adults and $5 for children age 6-16. Carousel rides will cost $2. Expect shorter queues as a result.

    The balloon is free year around! Summer is when the lines are longest, but bring dinner and set up a picnic while you wait. The 400 foot view is worth it!

    Arrive early and check in as soon as you get here if you want to ride on the balloon. Also- the don't fly in strong winds so you are more likely to ride if you go in the morning.
