The tethered helium balloon is now blue with a scrolling pattern, inspired by the springs and the < element of water, according to Matthieu Gobbi, general manager for Aerophile, the group responsible for operating the balloon, said on the Disney Parks Blog. The balloon gets a makeover every four years, according to Gobbi.
The balloon ride, which is about 10 minutes, provides a 360-degree view of the Walt Disney World Resort. Adult pricing is $20 per person and children (ages 3-8) are $15 each.
