More About BMPR

Inspired by the origin of SWPR's name, we call our series Balloon Museum Pod Racing. BMPR is an exciting, unique, and high-performance air sport experience for all ages. Pilots fly quad-copter drones through gates and around flags or other obstacles at high speed. The drones they fly are agile and fast, and pilots steer them by wearing first-person-view (FPV) goggles that display a live video image transmitted from the drone itself. Visitors are also able to watch this in-flight video on TV screens!

 

Price

Spectator entry to BMPR X is included with payment of regular Balloon Museum admission fees ($3-$6 per person).
