Serena's Song: Accessible Hot Air Ballooning
Serena's Song is the only FAA approved hot air balloon that is accessible for people who use a wheelchair. The design, a side door that opens to permit ramped entry, was designed by Gary Waldman. It was inspired by his daughter, Serena, who has cerebral palsy. After seeing how much she enjoyed riding the balloon he created one that now appears at events all over the country.
