Al Ula Just Broke A World Record With Its Hot-Air Balloon Shows

Al Ula’s winter festival is known for a lot of things but its most iconic aspect of it is certainly its hot-air balloon show – and this just got a lot fancier.

Al Ula’s hot air bool show has just broken a  world record for the longest ‘glow show’

The Guinness World Record for the longest hot-air balloon glow show was confirmed by an official adjudicator after 100 balloons soared aloft across a 3 km stretch of AlUla’s desert landscape.

Balloonists from 19 countries staged a record-breaking hot air balloon glow show

Glow shows — in which balloonists create choreographed dancing lights set to music by using their burners to illuminate their hot air balloons — are a regular attraction at AlUla’s Winter at Tantora arts, music and culture festival, but this was the most ambitious ever staged.

The international balloonists were participating in Winter at Tantora’s Balloon Festival, and offered festival visitors a chance to glide over AlUla’s spectacular landscape and some of its 7,000 years of archaeological remains, including the UNESCO World Heritage site of Hegra, a 2,000-year-old Nabataean site with well-preserved tombs carved into sandstone cliffs.
