What You'll Do
  • Enjoy a 1-hour hot air balloon ride
  • Discover spectacular views of the Rio Grande Valley
  • Have your choice of sunset and sunrise flights (depending on time of year)
  • Take flight with an experienced FAA licensed pilot
Enjoy a spectacular hot air balloon adventure. A desert sunrise or sunset is beautiful in itself, but this tour makes the view even more special. Imagine experiencing the Rio Grande Valley while peacefully fliyng in a first class hot air balloon.
What to Expect
Your adventure begins at the launch site. Become a hands-on crew member and help with the balloon inflation, or just sit back, observe, and take pictures as the gentle giant comes to life.

Embark upon a unique journey at lift-off. Enjoy breathtaking views of the Rio Grande Valley while floating in the sky and sending greetings to earthbound folks below.

Certified pilots will navigate the flight with your safety and enjoyment in mind. During your 1-hour ride, your pilot will answer any questions that you might have and identify local points of interest. The actual time in the air is approximately 60 minutes, but you should plan to spend up to 3.5 hours on your entire ballooning experience.

The chase crew will follow the balloon while you’re flying and meet you at the landing site. You can then help pack up the balloon. After the balloon is loaded into the truck and trailer, you will board the van and head back to the launch site.

Back at the launch site, enjoy a celebratory toast to end your safe and memorable adventure. You will be presented with a flight certificate and balloon flight pin to commemorate your aeronautical experience. Make sure you bring your camera.
