Sunrise Hot Air Balloon Ride from Phoenix
April 25, 2019
Watching the sun slowly rise up over the mountains is always breathtaking here in the southwest, no matter how many times you’ve seen it. But, imagine seeing the sunrise from a totally different perspective – from a hot air balloon with Rainbow Ryders Inc Hot Air Balloon Company! You’ll watch the glow of light gradually spill over the mountains and desert, almost like lava flowing from a volcano peak, and slowly fill the sky.
Rising Over the Desert
From your perch high up in the clouds, you’ll have an amazing panoramic view of the surrounding Sonoran Desert landscape. And while you drift over the desert floor your pilot will tell you a little about the Sonoran Desert, its history and the indigenous wildlife. If you are feeling ambitious, you can start your trip off by helping to inflate your balloon.
Grab a group of your closest friends and family, and schedule a Rainbow Ryders’ Sunrise Hot Air Balloon Ride for an unforgettable sunrise. Imagine surprising someone you love with a sunrise flight on an anniversary or birthday!
Total flight time will be from 45-60 minutes. If you are solo, don’t worry, you can still enjoy a flight. You’ll be put in with other eager balloonists to make up the numbers. Call the Rainbow Ryders Inc Hot Air Balloon Company office for information on a more private flight or for a group, they have several basket sizes to accommodate couples or small groups. Participants must be able to stand for at least 1-hour, be able to handle the impact of jumping down from the basket (similar to jumping down from a chair), and be at least 5 years old. Please remember to bring a light jacket (it gets cool up high), sunscreen, and of course don’t forget to bring your camera.
