Chasers' Club

 The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta is offering a special package for guests who would like to upgrade their Balloon Fiesta experience. Your Chasers’ Club ticket gives you guaranteed seating in a private outdoor patio located next to the launch field where you can enjoy a catered meal along with cookies and beverages. Coffee is provided and is served along with hot cocoa in the mornings and iced tea and lemonade are served during evening sessions.  Chasers' Club guests will also have access to private restrooms located within the Chasers' Club area. 

The Chasers' Club is located on the north end of Balloon Fiesta Park and offers a deluxe view of the launch field.  The Chasers' Club is connected to the Chase Lounge which allows you the opportunity to purchase alcoholic beverages without the bother of standing in a beer garden.  Please note, NM State law prohibits the sale of liquor before noon on Sundays and you are required to show ID to purchase alcoholic beverages regardless of your age.

Refunds and Rain Checks

BALLOON FIESTA IS A WEATHER PERMITTING EVENT.  While October is generally ideal for hot-air ballooning, strong winds or storms may delay or cancel sessions.  An "official cancellation" is not based on whether balloons fly.  If balloons are able to inflate for a static display but are not cleared to fly this is not considered a canceled session.  Once a session is officially canceled, you will be given a rain check in the form of general admission tickets.  These tickets will be handed out at the Chasers' Club gate and can be used in the current or upcoming year.
