A half hour before the first light in the sky, sunrise-flight passengers rendezvous with their pilot for a quick briefing while a colorful balloon inflates. Then up to eight riders board the basket and slowly climb to heights of nearly 1,000 feet. Soon, the flickering neon of the distant Vegas Strip and the handsome Red Rock mountains, top hats and all, come into view. As the sun creeps over the eastern horizon, riders high-five passing duck formations and gaze down onto lush countryside and city boulevards before touching down at the end of their journey.
Flights typically last 45 minutes to an hour, and are capped off with a champagne toast. Flight routes and landing sites vary based on the winds and weather, so customers should allow around four hours for the entire experience. View the FAQ page for additional information.
