Description

from Vegas Balloon Rides
Vegas Balloon Rides allow visitors to view Las Vegas from a truly unique perspective. Floating gently across the Vegas Skyline, passengers can enjoy the world’s oldest and safest form of flight and check something truly memorable off their bucket list. Daily flights offer breathtaking scenes as the sun rises over the Las Vegas strip. Starting in the in the Southwest Valley ascend into the skies and enjoy glorious bird's-eye views of the Las Vegas Strip, the gorgeous Red Rock Mountains and the surrounding desert as you gently float in the early morning sun.

Your adventure begins shortly before sunrise at our welcome center just off the Las Vegas Strip. From here a short journey to our launch site followed by safety briefing while the crew starts the inflation process and your balloon takes shape before your eyes ultimately standing more than 10 stories tall.
Then you join the pilot in the basket for lift-off. Our FAA certified pilots will point out landmarks and points of interest as well as share stories from their vast Las Vegas experience during the approximately one hour flight. Each flight is totally unique as the route and landing site are completely dependent on the wind strength and direction. No two flights are ever the same.

Once on the ground, share in the oldest of ballooning traditions, a champagne toast, and revel in the peace, tranquility and beauty that you never knew existed.

Great equipment, great pilot. We had a lot of fun. Wish the wind would have cooperated so we would have traveled further. Maybe next time. Half the fun is meeting people from around the world who share this adventure.

The balloon ride was absolutely fantastic! Both the pilot and crew did a great job. The balloon is the biggest one I've ever seen. It can accommodate 16 passengers. The downside is the logistics. From start to finish, it took about six hours. The site of the flight was in Pahrump - on the other side of Mt. Charleston. Although the initial meeting site is in Las Vegas, the ride (in their vans) over to Pahrump takes over an hour in each direction. So, even at 12,500 feet, none of Las Vegas is in view. Due to FAA regulations, it's going to be the same with any ballooning outfit in the area. There's just too much other air traffic in the area to permit balloon operations in the valley. But if you want to go on a hot air balloon ride when you're in town, I can't imagine anybody else doing a better job, and they're highly recommended!!!

Early start is a must. First up is a short restroom break, snack and paperwork at the office. Wind advisories had been for the last few days. The Company went the extra mile by taking us a little further out of town to find proper calmer wind. You are at the mercy of the wind. We were at all times, kept abreast of what to expect. Crew, chase crew and the pilot Jeff were fantastic. If your lucky enough, try and help with set up and take down, it’s a really hands on experience. Exceeded my expectations. Highly recommend

We were promised a ballon ride over the fabulous Las Vegas strip. We were told we would be collected from the hotel and then taken a short car ride to the site where the balloon ride would take place. This was a complete lie. Was over an hour and a half away (Plus stopping at Wallmart to collect some Helium). Ended up over some little town with zero views (Except cannabis fields if thats your thing). When we asked about the strip we were told they DONT do this even though the lady we spoke to the night before said we were. They said "We have told her to stop saying this as we don't offer this service". Complete and utter joke, stop selling this at as a Vegas strip balloon ride. Avoid at all costs!!! Made us late for the other plans we had that day as the drive to the town was over an hour and a half away!!! Also said snacks would be provided which never were. Also some staff were clueless as to how to pack the balloon away which meant even more delays. If this was free I would have been left disappointed. When we said about the Vegas trip they said "Another company offers this but it's only a 20 minute balloon ride" Well 20 mins of that would have been what I wanted rather than an hour of boredom looking at nothing. Thanks for nothing!!!

"The pilot was a treat!"

We were lucky to have a pilot that took us up to 12 000 feet...AMAZING!!! He knew what he was doing and I never felt scared or unsafe. The landing was spectacular!! A gentle soft almost slow motion landing. I will definitely recommend this!!! The only concern I had was the car we were transported in. It almost fell apart. Due to a broken step, I slipped and fell out of the bus at our first stop. I agree it must have looked hilarious but I did actually hurt myself. So Vegas Baloon Rides - fix your transportation vehicles!!!
