If you ever flew when you were a kid you probably only cared about two things: getting that in-flight snack and sitting by the window. There was something so exciting about looking out that tiny airplane window and being able to see the city you were about to visit before you even landed. If you still get excited at the thought of seeing a new place from high above Best of Vegas offers a Las Vegas flight that’ll give you birds-eye-views of the city with all of the “window space” you can imagine - Vegas Air Balloon Rides.
With the Vegas Air Balloon Rides, you’ll not only get to experience the beauty of Las Vegas and the surrounding dessert in the open air, you’ll get to ride in one of the first forms of flight for a relaxing and serene trip everybody in the family will enjoy.
You’ll begin your air balloon ride before the rest of Las Vegas is even awake, or before they’re done partying at least when you meet your Pilot and flight crew at the launch site 30 minutes before sunrise. It’s here that you’ll learn the mechanics and inflating procedure of the hot air balloon as you get the opportunity to watch and help inflate the massive balloon.
During the inflating process, you’ll be amazed at the size of the hot air balloon, as the bigger balloons can tower an astonishing 10 stories over you upon completion. Yes, 10 stories! That’s almost like looking up at one of Las Vegas’ giant hotels. Once you get over how big the balloon really is you and your family will climb into the gondola basket for a peaceful trip over Vegas you won’t forget.
Make sure you bring your camera because the Vegas Balloon Ride will offer sites of the city and its surroundings you may never get the chance to see while on the ground. This unique tour flies you high above the city streets, 1,000 feet above for incredible views of the Las Vegas Strip and even the gorgeous Red Rock Mountains. As you peacefully drift in the Las Vegas morning air you’ll get the opportunity to take in some of the desert’s wildlife and surrounding nature that you don’t normally get to see on the Strip.
After nearly an hour of drifting through the desert skyline, you’ll head back to land for a champagne toast and to celebrate the amazing sites you just experienced.
Vegas Balloon Rides is also a great way to spend time with dad this Father’s Day so if you plan on being in the city this weekend make sure you look for discounted tickets for Vegas Air Balloon Rides right here on Best of Vegas.
