The Zamperla Balloon Race Ride is a delightful and whimsical attraction that adds an element of airborne excitement to amusement parks. Designed and manufactured by Zamperla, a renowned Italian amusement ride manufacturer, the Balloon Race Ride combines thrilling spinning motion with the whimsy of floating in a hot air balloon.
The ride consists of a circular platform with a central tower. The tower is adorned with brightly colored hot air balloons, each accommodating riders in their spacious and secure gondolas. As the ride begins, the central tower rotates, causing the individual balloons to spin and rise, creating a sensation of flying through the air.
The Balloon Race Ride offers an exhilarating experience suitable for guests of all ages. Riders are seated comfortably in their gondolas, which are equipped with safety restraints to ensure a secure and enjoyable ride. As the rotation and ascent of the balloons accelerate, riders experience a sense of weightlessness and the feeling of soaring high above the ground.
The colorful and imaginative design of the Balloon Race Ride adds to its appeal. The vibrant hot air balloons, often featuring eye-catching patterns or themed artwork, create a visually captivating experience for riders and onlookers alike. The ride’s gentle and smooth motion, combined with the playful atmosphere, makes it a popular choice for families and thrill-seekers seeking a lighter yet enjoyable ride experience.
The Zamperla Balloon Race Ride provides a perfect blend of excitement and enchantment. Whether you imagine yourself floating on a magical adventure or simply delight in the spinning motion and panoramic views, this attraction promises a delightful and memorable experience for all who embark on its whimsical journey.

Twelve balloons with gondolas hold up to 4 passengers each. This ride also comes in 8-balloon and 12-balloon versions. There is also an essentially identical ride with pirate ships instead of balloons. Seat belts and locking doors provide safety. At some installations, a rider may exit themselves; in others, an operator must let them out.
The Chance Morgan company manufactures a version of the Balloon Race, which is similar except the balloons are much bigger.
A smaller version of this ride called Samba Balloons is also in existence. The ride does a similar motion, but the ‘balloons’ can be spun by riders. This version of the ride is often found in areas of amusement parks and at traveling carnivals.
