Some sky lantern background

In Japan releasing sky lanterns, also known as wishing balloons, is very special. The Japanese believe that wishing balloons should be launched with a wish in mind. That’s where the name wishing balloon comes from. Launching a sky lantern is a happening in itself, especially when several sky lanterns are launched simultaneously or just after each other.

Sky lanterns are essentially miniature hot air balloons. The burner warms the air inside the sky lantern, which makes it rise and provides a beautiful air spectacle. When the flame in the wishing balloon goes out, the balloon will continue to float for a while and then slowly comes back to the ground.

The light weight material has been used for centuries because of its texture and strength. And the flame creates just the right amount of lift. Because the sky lanterns are light weight, they will rise easily into the night with a enchanting feeling, creating wonder among you and your party guests. The burner is firmly secured to bamboo struts so that it remains alight during its ascent.

A sky lantern is also called wishing balloon, mini hot air balloon, UFO ballon, lucky balloon or flying Chinese, Japanese or Thai lantern.

Sky lantern instructions:

Sky lanterns are fun and safe products but always read the user and safety regulations before use. They are exclusively intended for use by persons aged 18 and older. The user is at all times entirely responsible for the use of the wishing balloon and for any consequences thereof.
• Launch the sky lantern with 2 people.
• Wait 1,5 to 2 minutes between lighting and launching the sky lantern. This will ensure a safe and good flight.
• Follow the sky lantern for as long as possible so you can intervene that in case of danger.
Do not launch the sky lantern:
• Above a wind force of 2 Beaufort or more.
• When it is raining or in humid weather conditions such as fog.
• During periods of extreme drought.
• Only use outside.
• Within a distance of 15 kilometres from (gliding) airports.
• Close to large objects like buildings, trees and other objects. Hold a distance of minimal twice the height of the object.
• When an object is attached or the paper is damaged.
• At some places, for example beach or on the sea, a balloon can be mistaken for an emergency signal. Please take this into account.


Sky lantern user manual:

• Carefully remove the balloon from the packaging. Hold the sky lantern at the bamboo rings.
• Fold the 2 rings apart, making sure that the 3 connecting pieces are completely unfolded. The 2 rings should no longer be able to bend into each other.
• Carefully shake out the paper of the sky lantern until it has unfolded into a cylinder. Be careful not to tear or otherwise damage the paper.
• Only launch the sky lantern on the outside. Do this with at least 2 adults.
• While one person holds the sky lantern at the outer bamboo ring and keeps the paper away from the burner, the other person lights the burner.
• Wait until the burner is completely burning all around.
• Wait until the sky lantern has filled itself with warm air. Do this at least for 90 seconds.
• When you feel that the sky lantern is “pulling upwards” the point has arrived to release it.
Release the sky lantern and look at it for as long as possible so that you can fully enjoy the spectacle and respond immediately in case of danger.
