What is the average height of the balloon basket for someone to see over?

Views: 13506

The average height of the sidewalls is about 1 meter, or three feet.

The walls are high enough for passengers to feel very secure, and low enough for all but the youngest passengers to easily see over the side. Since many balloon ride companies have a minimum age requirement, the height of the basket walls are rarely in the way of a wonderful view.
