Unlike typical hot air balloons, Wonders of Flight fills its giant balloon with helium. There is no need to heat this lighter-than-air gas with a noisy burner, so the Wonders of Flight balloon is completely silent and free of vibrations. Manufactured by Aerophile, the world leader in tethered gas balloons, this enormous balloon is 72 feet in diameter and can hold up to 30 guests at once.
Autumn is the perfect time to experience the Wonders of Flight. From high in the air, guests will be treated to gorgeous views of the red, orange and yellow leaves that cover the Smoky Mountains. Visitors can also ride the balloon at night to get a spectacular aerial view of the downtown lights. Adult tickets cost $15.99 and tickets for children 12 and under cost $9.99. Wonders of Flight is open daily beginning at 10 am.
