Before zeppelins were invented, being full of hot air was considered quite useful, as inflated egos were routinely rented out for airborne transport. See high-flying sights without the aid of disembodied arrogance with today's Groupon: for $99, you get one ticket to a sunrise hot-air balloon flight from Adventures Out West in Scottsdale (up to a $185 value). Each airborne basket holds 4–12 people, and each Groupon only covers one flier.
During a sunrise flight over the Sonoran Desert, balloon-o-nauts have access to glorious bird's-eye views of the cascading landscape. Riders can take advantage of a rare opportunity to view desert wildlife, such as jackrabbits, mule deer, javelinas, coyotes, and the majestic saguaro cacti, all too skittish to be approached on the ground. Adventures Out West’s expert pilots boast decades of experience steering the gentle craft, and they have the know-how to take flights to maximum altitudes, at which riders can see for up to 100 miles in every direction.
Guests who weigh more than 200 pounds will be charged an additional $50 fee for additional equipment.
