What an experience! I was very lucky to be invited to join a group of friends for a birthday celebration. We arrived at the hangar for our designated time, Donna giving us a very warm, friendly welcome. Our flight was delayed a bit, as other groups had been rescheduled, VIP's coming in, etc. We took off about an hour later... More

We visited the Goodyear Blimp Hangar two years ago but could not get the full tour as there was a hurricane watch and the Blimp was being evacuated. This time around we got a great tour. It is an informative tour that will captivate the attention of young and old alike. The pilot was funny and even gave us a... More

If the blimp is in town and you can get in for a tour, you should definitely make the trip. Pilots are friendly and informative. I think the adults appreciated it more than the kids did (ages 2, 6,7, and almost 9). You are in and out in less than an hour, so even if the kids are a little... More

My sons and I had the pleasure of going up in this Blimp - it was so much fun. The captain was funny - he made me put the video camera down and enjoy the ride and I am glad he did, it was so fun right down to the decent down to the hanger! My sons and I will... More

We had a terrible time finding a phone number or address for the Goodyear Blimp tour.The website mentions an opportunity to ride the blimp as a passenger, but nothing about the tours. Nowhere on the website does it list a phone number or street address. After multiple searches, we finally found a phone number and address (not on Goodyear's website).... More

Every hour on the hour the blimp lands. Watch from benches in the parking lot for free. Located at 1500 5th Ave, Pompano Beach.

What a thrill for young and old to see the infamous Goodyear Blimp up close! When we arrived for the tour we were told that they were in evacuation mode because of the hurricane threat and would have to cancel taking the Blimp out of the hanger but that we could take a tour inside the hanger seeing how they...

If you have a free hour, this is a must. The tour was very informational, the blimp was huge, and to see the launch up close was amazing. The tour guide was one o te pilots of the airship and he knew a lot. Call head to make sure you show up on a day hen the blimp is in.

This was definitely a highlight of our holiday experience (and the antique car museum!)!! It was amazing to see the blimp up close and VERY informative! At first my husband was interested (thought it would be boring) but I insisted and turns out he enjoyed it even more than I did!!
