At last, Miami is introducing a public elevated sightseeing platform, the Miami SkyLift, for everyone to view the city from above! This unique amusement ride is the perfect way for young and old to experience Miami.
This passenger carrying helium balloon is tethered by a high tenacity steel cable attached to an electrical winch system that extends to elevate the balloon up to 500 feet. During the approximate 15-minute guided ride, up to 30 passengers will get an exhilarating view of downtown Miami, its suburbs, and the surrounding beaches and islands.
Rides will also be offered at night. Its internal illumination system will light up the balloon like a giant moon in the night sky.
The Miami SkyLift will also be available for private and corporate events for up to 1000 people. Its prime location on the shores of Biscayne Bay makes it an excellent venue for weddings, business receptions, birthdays, anniversaries, etc.
Currently, there are over 30 helium balloons of this type operating successfully in major cities worldwide, including London, Acapulco, Philadelphia, Mexico City, Niagara Falls, and others.
