Sky High Night Glow

The sky’s the limit as magnificent hot air balloons float back into Robin Hill this May half term for a three-day extravaganza!

Running daily from 5pm – 10pm, 29th – 31st May with spectacular Night Glow displays every evening, there’s even more opportunity to see the balloons in action!

The park’s Lower Valley will be a hive of activity with hot air balloon crews tethering, performing inflation races and attempting mass launches from site!

You’ll have the chance to not only marvel at the balloons, but also soak up the atmosphere with a full programme of live music in the Valley and Woodland Ponds!

Last year’s event sold out and Sky High 2021 will also be a limited capacity event. Tickets will sell quickly, so booking online in advance is essential and tickets will be available this Friday, 12th March! 

Sky High hot air balloons return to Robin Hill on the Isle of Wight

The safety of our staff and customers is of the highest importance and the planning of this outdoor event will ensure all precautions and guidelines are adhered to. Activity will predominantly be taking place on our vast Lower Valley field with plenty of space to sit back, relax and enjoy this extraordinary display in a safe environment.

As we found last year, all hot air balloon activity is highly weather dependant and relies on stable air and calm winds. The winds tend to be at their lightest during the cooler part of the day, so our programme reflects this with activity planned for the late afternoon onward.

Hot air balloon activity is highly weather dependant and relies on stable air and calm winds. The winds tend to be at their lightest during the cooler part of the day, so our programme reflects this with activity planned for the late afternoon and evening.

In the event of the weather being too windy or it raining, balloon activity will not take place. This will include the Night Glow finale show, however, should inflation of the balloon envelopes not be possible, our team will endeavour to put on a basket burner show as a minimum.

Please note: as per our standard Terms & Conditions, all tickets are non-refundable and no refunds will be given as a result of balloon activity not taking place due to unsuitable weather conditions. 

The focus of this event will be within our vast Lower Valley field. This is accessible to those with additional accessibility requirements, however we do advise anyone using a wheelchair has a strong helper with them as there are some steep hills back to the top of the park.

Our Tractor Train is not currently in operation as a result of our COVID-safe risk assessment process.

You can find more specific accessibility information here.
