The Sandstorm in a Balloon is an accessory that combines the functions of the Sandstorm in a Bottle and the Shiny Red Balloon. It boosts jump height by 33% and jump speed by 30%, increasing the player's first jump's height to 10½ blocks (~75% increase), and provides a double jump that now goes a whopping 26½ blocks, for a total height of 37 blocks. Unlike most other double-jump balloons, the Sandstorm Balloon jump will put the player at risk of taking fall damage if they do not cancel it mid-jump or have a Lucky Horseshoe.

Jump height is oddly reduced when underwater, reducing the player's total underwater height from 27 blocks (8 + 19 from Sandstorm jump) to 22 blocks (7 + 15 from Sandstorm jump).

Effect Items

Increased height of first jump
Sandstorm double jump
  • The Sandstorm in a Balloon can stack with separate double-jump items, such as the Sharkron Balloon and Fart in a Jar. Stacking multiple items that give the same type of double-jump (in this case, Sandstorm) will not increase the effects of the jump.


  • The double jump can be used to negate fall damage if timed correctly.
  • The double jump can be stopped midway by releasing the Jump button.
  • The Sandstorm jump provides a speed boost when used, which can be used to quickly turn around while retaining some speed.
