Check Out the Ada Twist, Scientist Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Balloon!

Incredible news, Ada Twist fans!

Our beloved, pint-sized scientist, Ada Twist, Scientist, will take flight in her maiden voyage as a giant parade balloon in this year's Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade!

Ada Twist, Scientist follows the adventures of eight-year-old Ada Twist, with the help of her two best friends, Rosie Revere and Iggy Peck, Ada unravels and solves mysteries for her friends and family. But solving the mystery is only the beginning, because science isn’t just about learning how and why and what (the truth, the facts)… it’s about putting that knowledge into action to make the world a better place.

This year marks the 95th annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and we couldn't be more excited to see our Ada Twist featuring as one of four new balloons in the amazing line-up.

The balloon version of Ada is as big as her giant sized curiousity, spanning 51 feet high, 41 feet long, and 29 feet wide!

Fun Fact: If you lined up 27 real pens, they would equal the length of the pen behind Ada's ear!

You can check out this year's parade balloon line-up and a 360° model of Ada on the Macy's website.

You can also get a sneak peek of the Ada Twist balloon which was taken on its test flight!
