Flying Ace Balloon Race

Spin across the sky!

Up, up and away! Adventurers worldwide love hot air balloons for their ability to let passengers soar and float high in the sky with the birds. At Kings Dominion, we’ve got your ticket for a high-flying, hot air balloon adventure of your own! On our Flying Ace Balloon Race ride, young flyers can join Snoopy’s alter ego, the famous World War I Flying Ace, on a colorful, free-spirited chase across the sky. This adventurous ride is just about as close as you can get to the majestic feeling of riding in a hot air balloon, without actually stepping into a wicker basket and taking flight. Flying Ace Balloon Race will create fun memories for the whole family. Here’s a fun family idea from the World War I Flying Ace: Ask your children where they would want to go if they could take a real hot air balloon ride to anywhere!
