ToonFest Hot Air Balloon

This hot air balloon was created for ToonFest 2014. It opened to all Toons to ride on September 21, 2014, ahead of its original release date of September 26, 2014. It was manned by Alec Tinn.

Appearances and Events

  • On September 19, 2014, the ToonFest hot air balloon was released in the ToonFest area.
  • On September 21, 2014, the ToonFest hot air balloon was opened to all Toons to ride to the top of the tower for the firework show.

Design

The hot air balloon is a recolor of Slappy's hot air balloon but much bigger. It is patched red and yellow, with a blue stripe across the bottom which separates the red and blue from the orange, along with the ToonFest 2014 logo right in the center. Below the balloon is a Birthday Cake prop just like in Slappy's. The cockpit is connected by two toon hands holding onto the balloon.

Transcript

Here are the phrases Alec Tinn says while he rides with you in the balloon:

Alec Tinn (9/19/14):

  • Hey there! Come back when the Fireworks start for a ride to the top of the tower!

I could have been a fisherman.

  • Heeeeellllllooooo!
  • Despite my serendipitous exclamation, I must inform you that I am actually quite terrified!
  • Balloon rides aren't really my forte. I'm all about voting.
  • Preferably votes that stay on the ground.
  • You know, I could have been a Fisherman too. Great scenery. Slimey fish.
  • On second thought, I couldn't handle fishing. Slime doesn't work well with my gloves.
  • If they had an official ToonFest counter though? Oh man, that would be the dream.
  • But no, instead I'm up here in the balloon.
  • That's the last time I put my name into a ballot! No, just kidding. I love ballots.
  • Just press the ToonFest Teleport Button when you're ready to come back down!

Color scheme

  • Another balloon ride. Just what my day needed!
  • That was complete sarcasm, too. I actually have a mortal fear of heights.
  • I've been living my nightmares all day today!
  • I must say though, this ride isn't so bad yet. At least I'm not alone!
  • You can see a lot from up here, actually. The mine, the mountains -- is that... A castle?
  • Flippy really is going all out with these construction projects.
  • I can't say I like the color scheme though.
  • Wowee, this is great! I'm actually pretty excited to head--
  • Hang on - you're getting off here? No, you can't just leave me all the way up here!
  • Just press the ToonFest Teleport Button when you're ready to come back down. Don't mind me, I'll just float here panicing!

We're not going to survive this ride.

  • Need a lift?
  • I actually wouldn't recommend it.
  • Say, do you know how many Toons go sad from balloon crashes each year?
  • One. There's actually only been one and he didn't really go sad from a crash.
  • He worked with balloons though. So that counts.
  • I've happened to notice that you haven't asked me to take you back down to the ground yet!
  • I mean seriously, I'm telling you straightforward: We're not going to survive this ride.
  • Listen, I didn't want to do this, but we're too high. This is just too high. For your own safety I'm taking us back--
  • Oh we're here. You know, that was just as bad as anticipated, and now I get to relive it all again. Hooray!
  • Just press the ToonFest Teleport Button when you're ready to come back down!

Alec Tinn (9/28/14):

  • No, no! Blargghh, not another one!
  • I don't mean to offend very much -- I'm just not a fan of rides.
  • ...or balloons...
  • ...or...heights...
  • AHH! -- Sorry, just looked down.
  • I didn't really volunteer for the job you see, it's just that...
  • Well, you know what happened.
  • Flippy insisted on having a balloon here in his memory.
  • Oh boy, we're here. Looks like I get to go back down.
  • Just click on the ToonFest Teleport Button when you're ready to come back down!

Trivia

  • Alec Tinn manned the hot air balloon despite being afraid of heights.
