Central Park now offers hot-air balloon rides through August 22nd. The rides will last 10 minutes and give you great views of the park and the rest of Manhattan. Four passengers and a pilot will descend ~300 feet in the air. The hours are: 7 a.m. – 10 p.m. – we’d recommend going at night because your balloon will be illuminated. Adults pay a reasonable $25/person and children under 12 years old are $17.50.
