AeroBalloon is a new attraction at Underground Atlanta. It’s basically a tethered hot air balloon that takes you up 350 feet in the air. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for kids under 10. Sounds kind of cheesy but cool enough to check out. Here are some “Fast Facts” from their website.

    I can see this from my window at work and I’ve been trying to figure out what it is all week. I love that it’s branded for a cable company. Are all amusement rides branded now?

    “passengers assume any and all risks”

    Just like getting Comcast’s tv and internet services.
