Over approximately four hours, guests arrive in time to watch—or help—the balloon inflate in anticipation of sunrise or sunset. Then pilots propel up to eight passengers through clear blue skies for up to 60 minutes as they take in the picturesque scenery. Afterward, guests are presented with a commemorative flight certificate and lapel pin.
Though this merchant sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.
World Balloon's skilled pilots have been cruising gentle air currents in their colorful balloons for over 41 years. From the safety of a basket, they unveil panoramic views of the arcing earth, the sun rising above the Sandia Mountains, and the lush greenery of the Rio Grande Valley. After the balloon alights upon the ground, the staffers keep the experience going. They treat guests to a champagne toast and a light snack, and give them a commemorative certificate. The crew also sets the tone for each celebration with a short lesson on the origins of hot-air ballooning and how to identify which clouds would yield the fluffiest pillow stuffing.
