America has always been the most extreme country, from the Boston Tea Punchings to having the first man swear on the moon. We hold this shredding guitar solo to be self-evident with this Groupon.

Choose from Three Options

  • $99 for a nonexclusive flight for one (up to a $195 value)
  • $189 for a nonexclusive flight for two (up to a $390 value)
  • $359 for a nonexclusive flight for four (up to a $780 value)

During nonexclusive flights, Groupon holders join other passengers on an aerial tour of the Sonoran Desert for at least 45 minutes. Each flight includes a champagne toast and catered food once the balloon lands, as well as a commemorative flight certificate.

Hot Air Expeditions

Though a pilot mans each of Hot Air Expeditions balloon flights, the excursions are really guided by Mother Nature. The colorful balloons simply follow the wind, hovering above the cacti and coyote that call the Sonoran desert home before gently climbing breezes to give passengers a full view of the surrounding mountains and lakes. Groups can take morning flights year-round or afternoon flights from November through March, both of which offer spectacular photo opportunities, as well as time-sensitive challenges to any still-life painters on board.

The mutable nature of the flights mean they last anywhere from 45–90 minutes, after which, passengers will enjoy sparkling beverages and catered snacks, such as pastries. Each guest is awarded an official flight certificate as a memento of their aerial journey before boarding a courtesy van that returns them to the launch point. Though the actual flights last up to 90 minutes, groups should allow up to four hours for the entire trip.


I don't know why waited so long to try a hot air balloon ride, but one thing's for sure, I definitely would go up with Hot Air Expeditions again!

It was an unforgettable experience and not at all scary as anticipated.
