Sheets to the Wind"
The most recent addition to Rocky Mountain Hot Air, LLC, is "Three Sheets to the Wind," a tetrahedron - shaped hot air balloon.
What the heck is a tetrahedron? A tetrahedron is a three- dimensional object with flat faces and straight edges, composed of four identical triangular sides, three of which meet at each corner. The four triangles are "equilateral", meaning that each side of each triangle is the same size. When assembled, the four sides create a pyramid, or in the case of a hot air balloon, an upside-down pyramid standing on one of its corners.
This particular balloon is about 73 feet wide, 65 feet high, and contains about 60,000 cubic feet of air when inflated. It is a world traveler, most recently participating at a balloon event in China.
While not available to be used for commercial rides, "Three Sheets to the Wind" is available for special events (i.e. tethers, fund raisers, special shapes rodeos, etc.). Please contact us for additional information.
