Long Description:
The PanoraMagique balloon, 35 meters high and 22.5 meters in diameter, rises to an altitude of 100 meters at which point it is visible from 20 kilometers around. It is certainly the world's least polluting aircraft, for it is raised and lowered by an electric winch.
Built by AEROPHILE S.A. the PanoraMagique balloon carries up to 30 passengers on a exciting six-minute sky ride. Installed since 2005 on the lake at Disney® Village, it has given several hundred thousand people a unique and unforgettable experience.

-------------------

Ce ballon mesure 35 mètres de haut pour 22,5 mètres de diamètre et monte jusqu’à 100 mètres d’altitude. En vol, il est visible à 20 kilomètres à la ronde Il s’agit de l’aéronef le moins polluant du monde puisqu’il est animé par un treuil électrique !
Le ballon avec sa nacelle, son enveloppe et son fil et pèsent 2 tonnes environ.
Ainsi, le ballon peut élever jusqu’à 30 passagers (environ 2,5 tonnes), ce qui en fait le plus grand ballon captif au monde, et garder 1,5 tonne de lift dans le câble pour contrer la force du vent. Plus il y a du vent, plus on garde de lift, moins on emmène de passagers ! De toute façon, le câble peut résister jusqu’à 44 tonnes de traction…
