Balloon Launch Request Form

If you would like to have us come and do a balloon launch with your organization, please fill out the form below. We typically work with K-12 groups, although we have done launches with other educational groups in the past as well (e.g., Casper College, Casper Planetarium). We cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate your request. Although we usually take requests on a first come first serve basis, priority will be given to new groups that have not yet participated in one of our launches. All launches must take place in Wyoming.

IMPORTANT: Before submitting a request, please make sure to first read through our Balloon Launch 101 and Ballooning FAQ pages. Any questions or concerns you may have about doing a balloon launch may already be addressed there.


Contact Info

Note: We typically use two (2) large, heavy helium tanks (5 ft tall, 120 lbs each) to fill our balloons. These are high-pressure gas cylinders that should be handled with care! If we have them delivered, you will need to store them in an appropriate location until launch day. Many schools/buildings have an area designed for this purpose, such as a custodial room. Closets and other storage areas can work too. The tanks should be stored upright and ideally secured to a wall with chains, or nudged into a corner with something heavy, so that they cannot be knocked over. As a very last resort, the tanks can be stored laying down as long as they are out of the way of foot traffic and will remain undisturbed until the launch. Please use the comment box at the end of this form if you have any questions or concerns about this.
