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.

What a wonderful time we had on our flight with Jeff. This was always something I wanted to experience and I am so glad we had such great weather to be able to go up. The Jeff, Jim and the entire crew were fantastic and I highly recommend this company if you are thinking of a balloon ride.

"A great experience"

5 friends embarked on this experience. It was an adventure getting there and setting up the balloons. Our driver and all the people connected with this were very nice and experienced and we felt safe at all times. Jeff was a great pilot and very informative! The views and the sunrise were well worth it! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because after we landed, it was about 45 min standing in the cold watching them pack up the balloon while waiting on our champagne toast.We were invited to help but it was SO dusty and dirty (it is the desert) and we had other places to go afterward. The one that did help was covered in dirt by the time he was done. My suggestion would be to have someone do the toast with the clients while the others were packing up the balloon. This would also cut down on the time for the whole experience which would have been good. You never have enough time to do all you want to do in Vegas! All that being said, I am not sorry we did this!

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.
