There is still time to take advantage of a limited opportunity at Discovery Green. Administaff has sponsored tethered balloon rides by AeroBallon . The silent and pollution free ride fits in well with the green theme of Houston's park and will take up to 17 visitors 35 stories into to the air to enjoy the view.
Passengers of the helium filled balloon must be at least 5 years old and at least 40 inches tall. This rare attraction currently available in only 2 cities is scheduled to be in the park through the month of February but will not operate in certain weather conditions.
The $20 ticket price ($15 for kids under 13) benefits the park and its programs. Thrifty families can save $5 a ticket by taking their flight during off-peak times. For more information check the Discovery Green website.
