How do you steer a balloon?

Balloons simply float with the wind. The pilot can control the balloon's altitude to find a wind going in the desired direction, but you cannot fly upwind or crosswind.

Preflight planning insures the pilot knows which way the balloon will be traveling, and the pilot makes sure there are plenty of suitable landing sites downwind. You'll be amazed how the pilot is able to steer the balloon during your balloon ride!

Famous Balloon Quote:

These vehicles can serve no use until we can guide them. I had rather now find a medicine that can cure an asthma.
Dr. Samuel Johnson

What are the ropes for?
The crown line on top of the balloon is used to stabilize the balloon during inflation. "Tether lines" are used to tie the balloon down for display purposes. A "drop line" is sometimes released by the pilot just before landing so the ground crew can pull the balloon to a desired location.
