Balloon Inflation Tour
The Wednesday before Thanksgiving, tour from midtown to the Macy’s Parade Balloon Staging area. Guests will be able to roam at their leisure
When you think of the Thanksgiving Parade in New York City, the first thing you think about are the spectacular balloons. What most people don’t know is that on the Wednesday before the parade, the balloons are inflated in the area around the American Museum of Natural History on the Upper West Side. With our package, a licensed NYC tour guide will meet you at a convenient Midtown location and escort you on a climate-controlled motorcoach to the Thanksgiving Parade Balloon Inflation area (with tour commentary on the ride up) so you can see just how much helium it actually takes to make all your favorite characters fly as high as they do on parade day!
Take THE RIDE Wednesday Night before the Thanksgiving Parade.
On THE RIDE you’ve got front row seats as the streets of New York become a stage. Famous NYC landmarks are a backdrop to a live show with unparalleled technology, fun facts and amazing street performances. Riders will board THE RIDE, a super-sized, technologically amped-up vehicle that travels the streets of New York. With stadium-style, sideways seating and massive windows, riders have front row seats to the big city. You never know what you’ll see or who you’ll meet along the 4.2-mile route. No matter how many times you take THE RIDE, it’s never the same show twice.
