$749 for One-Hour Private Balloon Ride for Up to Six (Up to $1,500 Value)
Flights depart daily at sunrise, granting guests a one-hour 360-degree view of sites such as the Rio Grande river and the Sandia Mountains. Afterward, customers enjoy a champagne toast and continental brunch, where they receive gifts such as flight certificates, balloon pins, and a real crystal champagne flute.
Private Balloon Flights
As the sun rises over the Sandia Mountains, Private Balloon Flights’ colorful balloons float into the air, gliding to a vantage point of 1,000 feet before drifting downward over treetops and skimming the surface of the Rio Grande river. The company’s FAA-certified commercial pilots lead voyages along a number of different routes while pointing out notable sites, enthralling guests with fact-filled stories or tall tales about the balloon that flew Neil Armstrong to the moon.
Family baskets accommodate up to six full-size adult passengers, and smaller balloons provide a more intimate airborne excursion for 2–4 participants. A ground crew tracks each one-hour flight, rendezvousing with the balloon as it lands and escorting visitors back to their starting point. The sessions conclude with a continental brunch, where customers sip champagne and juice while sifting through souvenir gifts such as a first-flight certificate, an embroidered baseball cap, a crystal champagne flute, and a piece of the sky.
