The Balloon Race at Funtown U.S.A. is an undersized balloon ferris wheel, for the whole family. Located to the left of the park entrance, the balloon race stands out. You can even see this balloon ferris wheel from the parking lot. Funtowns Balloon Race is in excellent condition, as all the orange and blue cars have a sleek paint job. They always are bright, and look kid-friendly. This ride usually has a line less than 5 minutes. The cars are roomy, and have tons of leg room. The Balloon Race isnt too fast, but the view isnt too good because of the obstructed view by the balloons and its not tall enough. From the top of the Balloon Race, you can see the whole area, to the left of the park entrance. My favorite sight from the top of the ride is Excalibur. You can see Excaliburs lovely wooden structure. Funtown runs the Balloon Race fairly long, but the length of the ride, depends on how many people are in line for it. Overall, the Balloon Race is a poor balloon ferris wheel, and is a mediocre ride at Funtown. This is a great family ride. I recommend this ride to everyone. I highly recommend this ride to children, especially ones who havent been on bigger ferris wheels yet. This is a great relaxation ride.

Ok it sucks to run. Its boring, in the heat, and only old people and little kids like it. I must say, I did have one night of excitement, it caught on fire one night I was running it! oops. Im not sure I should have said that... oh well, it was scary and exciting, something not many people experience on BR.

yah, im gonna agree, this ride is really...well... bad. It goes in both directions which is cool i suppose. Maybe if there was a larger wheel, this would be worth keeping for children too afraid to ride, but being the ONLY one in the park, it really makes the park look small. Even Dragons has a hard time making up for this ride.

I really don't know why they keep this ride. It’s basic and with a small height has no view. They should remove this ride and replace it with a bigger Wheel. This ride is slow and a pain to get to in the park and not worth a ride.

Pretty average ride. Good for kids to go on while others in their group do some big rides. Not bad, but not great.

This ride was average. Not great. Not mediocre. Will you remember it for the rest of the time in the park? Maybe. Will you remember it tomorrow? No way.
