Less prone to explosions, roadrunner collisions, and painful butt burns, the hot air balloon has edged out the jetpack as the official ride of the 23rd century. Today's Groupon gives you the chance to explore these leisurely chariots of fire lest the future overtake you at 15 miles per hour: for $99, you get a sunrise balloon flight from Adventures Out West (up to a $185 value).

Recommended by Frommer's travel guide, Adventures Out West leads guided excursions through the aerial spectacles of the Sonoran Desert's landscapes and environs. Lasting 45 minutes, sunrise balloon tours give riders an easygoing and elevated trip through the panoramic desert and mountain terrain, which includes resilient flora such as saguaro cacti, palo verde trees, and distant mountain ranges assembled by packs of Paleolithic tailgaters. Tours float above vegetation and discreetly hover over animal habitats, with occasional views of coyotes, jackrabbits, desert mule deer, and javelinas. Equilibrious flyers sail over scrub and grass as grounded desert animals graze, give throaty calls, and try to bum rides to the nearest tumbleweed convention. Each 100-foot balloon drifts at heights from just above treetop levels to 3,000 feet above the ground, carefully following wind currents to prevent turbulence. After they touch down, customers clink to their successful hovering and mind control over clouds with an included champagne toast.
