Foolish Pleasure Hot Air Balloon Rides

In addition to her regular flight preparations, Foolish Pleasure Hot Air Balloon Rides’ co-owner Lorrie Ewer sometimes checks off a second midflight list: whether or not her passengers take each other, to have and to hold, for as long as they both shall live. As an ordained officiant, for an additional fee, she can legally conduct marriage ceremonies beneath the teal, pink, and cerulean balloon that she and her husband, Dan, initially bought to fly for pleasure but have since turned into a thriving business.

The Ewers fly passengers over the area’s most scenic vistas, such as the Tucson Mountains, Avra Valley, and Saguaro National Park, many of which boast views of local wildlife. After the flight, guests eat a continental breakfast and sip champagne as Lorrie and Dan email each person a set of photos taken during the trip, plus the phone number of the cloud that stole their heart.


The scenery was gorgeous and the ride smooth and peaceful.
