Hot Air Balloon Lift Off
Maize Valley’s annual Hot Air Balloon Lift off is scheduled for two days in 2016, Saturday September 24 and Sunday, September 25. This favorite event officially kicks off the fall season at Maize Valley. Half a dozen balloons will take to the sky against the backdrop of all of our fall harvest activities. Admission to this event is included with you fall harvest admission of $10 per person. The balloons generally lift off in the late afternoon – we suggest you plan to arrive early in the day to secure a parking spot.
Take a wagon ride, navigate the corn maze, visit the animals, marvel at the pumpkin cannon and so much more. Take a break from the outdoor fun with a visit to our Winery & Craft Brewery. Sip, sample and taste the many wines and beers we offer. With all of our fall fun, your family will be entertained for hours.
Full concessions including hot dogs, hamburgers, grilled Rueben’s and more, plenty of beverages and of course wine and beer tasting will be offered all day. (Sunday there no wine sales.) No outside food or beverages permitted.
The fall activities area opens at noon and closes at 10 p.m. (last admission at 9 pm). Regular admission rates apply – $10 for all ages & under 2 is free.
The balloon lift off is subject to weather (winds, rain, etc.). In case of inclement weather, and the balloons do not lift off, there will be no refunds given
Plan to arrive in the early afternoon for best parking. This also allows for plenty of time to take in ALL that Maize Valley has to offer before the balloons actually lift off in the late afternoon typically between 4 & 6 pm.
