What's the difference between a mass Ascension and a regular weekday launch. Are the week day launches as impressive?
Hi, thank you for your question. A mass ascension is when all 500 + balloons take flight. Other sessions may feature fewer balloons, but are just as impressive, as there are still many balloons that launch. One of the weekday favorites is the Special Shape Rodeo, which will take place on Thursday, October 12 this year. Be sure to visit our frequently asked questions page on our website for more information.
Mass means all 800 to 1000 balloons and weekday are only balloons competing in that days events
