Go Up, Up and Away During a Vegas Balloon Ride
Have you always dreamed of going up and away on a hot air balloon ride? If you come to Las Vegas, you’ll have the chance to experience this in a breathtaking manner! No matter if you’re on a romantic getaway or looking for a thrill, Vegas Balloon Rides are one of the best things to do in Las Vegas.
If you don’t want to miss an astonishing bird’s eye view of Las Vegas, including desert and residential areas, go on a Vegas Balloon Ride!
What to Expect on a Vegas Balloon Ride
Your adventure will start bright and early and you’d probably be picked up at your hotel. Once you’re at the launch site with the rest of your balloon ride group, you will get all the safety information and sign a waiver.
When the ten-story-high hot air balloon gets ready for the takeoff, all the passengers will climb into the gondola. Butterflies in your stomach at this moment are normal, but smooth and safe sailing will soon calm you down. In fact, in a few minutes you’ll reach a height of approximately 800 feet!
The balloon ride over the Las Vegas valley itself is rather peaceful. Apart from the occasional sounds of the propane burner, you’ll enjoy the magical silence and there will be plenty of time for you to admire the spectacular scenery below. On average, a balloon flight is one hour long and that’s enough to see views of Downtown Las Vegas and The Strip, as well as the Spring Mountains and Red Rock Canyon.
How to prepare for Vegas Balloon Rides? Call the night before the reserved flight, because sometimes rides may have to be rescheduled because of the heavy winds. Don’t forget to wear comfortable clothes and shoes. Bring your camera and get ready for the adventure you’ll never forget!
