There is no sensation of movement, no sensation of rising, rather one of the ground dropping away. Looking up inside the balloon from the wicker basket, the regular shapes of the colorful panels resemble a vast piece of dome- like architecture. There is a great feeling of peace and tranquility, heightened by the lack of wind?..because you're moving with it!
Your adventure begins upon arrival at our desert launch site. You will receive a pre-flight briefing where you'll learn more about hot-air balloon flight and the history of hot-air ballooning. The crew will begin the inflation process and once the envelope is filled with air, the propane burners are ignited to heat the air inside. Once the balloon is inflated, you will join your pilot in the beautiful hand crafted wicker basket. The luxurious, over-sized basket has plenty of room to allow everyone to enjoy the ride to the fullest.
As you gently leave the Earth, you'll be amazed at how light the balloon feels. During the flight you have an unobstructed 360-degree view of the city proper and the gorgeous landscape that surrounds Las Vegas.
The flight will start in the southwest valley, offering scenic views of some of Las Vegas' residential areas, the renowned Las Vegas Strip to the east, and the majestic Red Rock Mountains and Red Rock Canyon to the west.
The flight time varies from 45 to 75 minutes depending on the time of year and temperature.
Throughout your flight our ground crews follow over desert lanes and roads so that they can be ready and waiting for you upon your landing. You are greeted in the traditional manner with flutes of champagne and scrumptious finger food.
