Itinerary
Pass By:  
Las Vegas
Passengers will meet their pilot and crew approximately 90 minutes prior to sunrise and be transported to their launch location in Pahrump. While that does make for an early morning, launching in a hot air balloon while the morning sun simultaneously continues to make its way above the peaks of the desert mountains, is an experience like none other!
Stop At:  
Pahrump
Guests will be transported from the check-in office to the launch field in Pahrump, just an hour west of the Las Vegas Strip. During your flight, which lasts approximately 45-60 minutes, you will have a spectacular birds eye view of the Spring and Nopah Mountain Ranges, expansive and breathtaking views of Death Valley, and far-reaching sights into Eastern California. As you drift silently and peacefully over the countryside, you can watch for desert wildlife, take that all-important selfie, and talk with envious onlookers down below. Upon landing, passengers participate in a traditional Champagne toast, hear the story of how hot air ballooning began, and how it led to modern day aviation as we know it. Hot air ballooning is truly a bucket list item, and something you must do during your visit to Las Vegas. Get away from the hustle and bustle of the Strip and join us on a journey that will simply take your breath away!

The air Balloon experience was fantastic, the only problem is the you wake up so early for the experience which I think they can improve that with having everything ready for us people, so you don’t need to wake up that early.

This was our first flight, and Jeff was very professional and instantly put us at ease. The flight is early in the day (we arrived to the center @ 0315), which you will appreciate during the summer months. An hour ride to the launch site. Plenty of wildlife to see when approaching the ground. Taking off was almost a non-event with how smooth it was. The basket was plenty big enough to fit persons... up to 16 per flight. Bring your camera as you will get many breathtaking views. Champagne at the end of it all... with or without orange juice. Highly recommended.
