Highlights
Soar above the Arizona desert on a hot air balloon ride 
The pilot points out desert wildlife and plants that are easy to spot from the air
The wicker riding basket is divided into sections so you are not over-crowded 
First-time riders are rewarded with a traditional initiation ceremony
What to expect
Begin your adventure by meeting your crew just north of Phoenix about 30 minutes before sunrise for this 4-hour experience. Take a short van ride to the launch area for this scenic flight. After you arrive, experience the inflation of the balloon by motorized fans as it grows to an enormous 11 stories tall. If the winds are favorable, you may get to go inside the balloon as it is inflated to get some amazing photos. Once the envelope is filled with air, the propane burners are ignited to heat the air inside. It takes about thirty minutes before you are ready for flight. Join your pilot in the hand-crafted, oversized wicker basket with plenty of room for everyone to enjoy the 45-minute ride. As you takeoff, admire how light the balloon feels. During the flight, you have an unobstructed view to take excellent photographs. Flying close to the ground, hear and see the sights and sounds of desert life. Jackrabbits, quail, roadrunners, and coyotes are commonly spotted. Your pilot will point out the exotic desert plant life below and descend to within inches of trees and cacti. Upon landing, be greeted with flutes of champagne and breakfast. First-time riders will be treated to the legendary ceremony that balloonists all over the world have been sharing for more than two centuries. Finally, be inducted into the ballooning society and awarded the Certificate d'Ascension en Machine Aereostatique.

Friendly crew and beautiful big balloon
May 2021 • Friends
I enjoyed my experience greatly and have been wanting to go in a hot air balloon for about 30 years. It is the largest most beautiful balloon in America I get that however I guess I would have liked to go a little higher and stay a little longer. But with 18 people on board I understand why we did not go up too high
The only thing that was somewhat disappointing is that the 30-minute drive at 5:00 a.m. to the desert and having to stand in 65° Chile weather waiting an hour for them to completely unpack the balloon and set up. It would have been beneficial if one crew could have at least had it unpacked on the ground ready to go. But the crew made up for that weight with a marvelous breakfast and sweet ceremony after the ride. I do totally recommend

THEY Cancelled due to technical problems and provided NO reasonable 'make up' date...
May 2021
Dealing with the 'company' is terrible. Perhaps it was a fluke. We purchased this as a Birthday gift for my 81 year old father who was recently diagnosed with a progressive dementia. We made the reservations in March for May 10th. 2 days before their trip they are notified that it is cancelled due to maintenance issues?? When trying to reschedule for sometime in the month, they made NO ACCOMODATIONS and nothing was offered to compensate. They stated that they were booked and would open reservations for Dec in June- and there was NO WORKABILITY even thought they were the ones unable to fulfill the reservation . All we got was "the Groupon is good for a year but we are booked now" My father may not be able to engage in such a joy by then. Luckily Rainbow Ryder has 5 star review and were able to accommodate my parents.

Sorry for your disappointment but as with everything mechanical, it will sometimes need maintenance. We have been fortunate to avoid cancelling any flight due to mechanical reasons for over five years. I think our extension of the validity of your third-party voucher for one year is pretty reasonable. If you don't feel one year is long enough, please call me and I will make longer. I can't however make room on sold-out flights. That would involve cancelling someone else's flight to accommodate you. I am happy you found another company with available space and hope it was an enjoyable experience for your parents.

Easy going experience
Apr 2021 • Couples
Enjoyed seeing the hot air balloon rise, and allowing us to get a look from inside. The view was average, sun was up already by the time we got up, view was ok, didn’t really go high up as we saw others go. Stayed relatively low. Ride was short. Everyone else went up before us, and we came down before them. Landing was fun though. Nice experience, should put more information about actual time one flies for, and location you fly it around. Just so one doesn’t have other expectations.

From the FAQ section of our website: How long is the flight? Flights are normally around 45 minutes but may be longer or shorter depending upon weather conditions and availability of landings sites. How far will we fly? Every flight is different and we are at the whim of Mother Nature. A typical flight is approximately five to seven miles in distance. How high will we fly? Every flight is different depending upon wind/weather conditions. A typical flight is anywhere between tree-top and 5000 feet above ground. Will I see the sunrise from the balloon flight? No, we launch shortly after the sun has already risen.

We had such a great time. The Balloon is huge and the basket is extremely stable. If you are scared of the heights or basket movement in the air this is defiantly the balloon for you to be on. The crew was so friendly, funny and engaging. They made it a great experience for all that were aboard.

My favorite was up inside the sky! Randy and Earl were hilarious and super funny! I would recommend this company to anyone and everyone. It was so fun and romantic. I thought it was awesome they let us come inside the air balloon as it was airing up. I also really liked that they took photos of us all the time. Really enjoyed the served breakfast and Sunrise when we landed.They were all very involved. All very knowledgeable and professional! Awesome experience!

If you are looking for the best, look no further. They are highly experienced and do a great job of explaining everything, from set up to take down. This is the only company that allows you to go inside of the inflated balloon and take photos and such. Staff members are super friendly and entertaining as well. I highly recommend Arizona Balloon Safari!

We loved every minute of our experience! The pilot and everyone else were fun, helpful, and knowledgeable. My husbands boss gave this to us for Christmas and now I’m thinking of giving this gift to my kids, parents, and in-laws! I’d also love to do it again!
