Full description
The experience begins even before you rise into the sky. Help our crew inflate the balloon for a real "hands on" adventure, or just relax and take a few pictures as the gentle giant comes alive.

Once you gain altitude, enjoy vistas you have to see to believe as you float over the Arizona landscape. Phoenix lies beneath you while desert stretches to the distant mountains.

The pilots are FAA-licensed and experienced in navigating with your safety and enjoyment in mind. Your pilot will also answer questions and identify points of interest during your 1-hour flight.

A chase crew will follow on the ground and meet you at the landing site. From there a van takes you back to the launch site.

Upon your return, enjoy a celebratory toast to cap your unique airborne adventure. You'll also be presented with a flight certificate.

With the ground travel and other activities, plan to spend up to 3.5 hours with us in total.
  • First-class hot air balloon with expert, licensed pilot
