The service was really good. They were very informative and professional but it is just not worth what you pay for. The balloon doesn't go very high up. I mean AT ALL. My boyfriend who went with me who is terrified of heights said it could have gone up higher. And, there were other balloons that day that could have doubled the height we went up. Unfortunately, it was a birthday gift and even though, he didn't say it, i could tell my boyfriend was underwhelmed by the experience.

This was an amazing experience! Very well worth the price. The pilot (and owner) was a great host and made our time memorable.

The crew was fun and friendly. The ride was only about a 40-45 minutes ride. I was disappointed at how short it was. There were other balloons out that day that launched at the same launch site and went much farther north than us. We landed in an area where people were hunting and the team set up tables and chairs. Needless to say, it was uncomfortable and could hear gun fire all around us.

I loved the experience and the employees, I just thought that the ride was a little too short, and I also expected th balloon to go up higher like the other balloons that were around us. I feel like we stopped and everyone else kept going.

From Our Editors

Randy Long entered the working world as a travel agent, a vocation that whet his appetite for globetrotting, adventure, and haggling with airlines. When he became a father and husband, he passed a passion for thrill seeking on to his family, and their recent escapades include scuba diving in Barbados and dog sledding in Alaska. It was this thirst for exploration and a love of aviation that drove Randy to become an FAA-certified powered-parachute instructor and found Arizona Powerchutes.

Powered parachutes are comprised of two-seater, wheeled carts that float 20 feet beneath 40-foot parachutes. At sunrise—or sunset during the cooler months—Randy and a passenger climb aboard the cart, and Randy hits the throttle, gathering speed for about 100 feet before the parachute fully inflates and hoists the cart into the air. Randy adjusts the altitude to his patron's comfort level and steers crafts over the exotic plants and mountain silhouettes of the Sonoran Desert, averaging a speed of 26 miles per hour. After journeys, powered parachutes float to land safely, as they are inspected by the pilot prior to each flight and by an FAA-approved facility after every 100 hours of operation.
