What to expect

Your pilot will take you high in the sky for a hot air balloon ride over the rugged desert of the Pahrump Valley, located about an hour from Vegas and its Strip. The scenery from 10,000 feet (3,048 meters) up is simply stunning! Afterward, your pilot guides the hot air balloon back to land. When you touch down, share a Champagne toast, receive a flight certificate, and end your tour with a return to the meeting point. Bonus: During the winter months, select the sunset option to see the sun dip below the horizon and cast a golden glow across the valley.

    Stop: 90 minutes
    Guests will be transported from the check-in office to the launch field in Pahrump, just an hour west of the Las Vegas Strip. During your flight, which lasts approximately 45-60 minutes, you will have a spectacular birds eye view of the Spring and Nopah Mountain Ranges, expansive and breathtaking views of Death Valley, and far-reaching sights into Eastern California. As you drift silently and peacefully over the countryside, you can watch for desert wildlife, take that all-important selfie, and talk with envious onlookers down below. Upon landing, passengers participate in a traditional Champagne toast, hear the story of how hot air ballooning began, and how it led to modern day aviation as we know it. Hot air ballooning is truly a bucket list item, and something you must do during your visit to Las Vegas. Get away from the hustle and bustle of the Strip and join us on a journey that will simply take your breath away!

Picturesque Adventure
Flying with Vegas Balloon Rides was a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend this company to anyone who is looking for an adventure. Not only do you get to see the sun rising over Mt. Charleston as you take off, but also a one of a kind view into the Mojave Desert! We got to see a lot of wildlife below as we were flying including wild horses, burros, and coyotes.

I feel like I was scammed out of $633.88.
Sep 2021
Save your money and do something else with it. I feel like I was scammed. When I got my email receipt, it speaks of a various discounts which were not presented to me at booking. I called about this and was told there are now no discounts, they just hadn't had time to update the website . . . really ! ! ! Their website also speaks of meeting "approximately 1.5 hour before sunrise" and in another place says "meet approximately 1 hour before sunrise". Sunrise was 6:28 am so that would imply the meeting time would be no earlier than 4:58 am and possibly 5:28 am. When the notification of next day meeting time came out the evening before, I was stunned to see that we had to be there at 4 am (roll out of bed at 3 am) or be considered a no-show. I then tried calling to question that time and possibly cancel due to the misleading and incorrect information on the website but only got a voice mail. My call was not returned and when I tried again at 9:15 pm they were closed. We showed up the next morning to get our money back but were told we would have to wait until 10 am to talk to office staff and they would not confirm that we could or would get a refund then. Because of all that, we decided to go ahead and go. The view and scenery out in the desert at Pahrump Nevada was extremely anti-climatic and definitely not what I had expected. The most exhilarating thing that happened was watching the dogs below bark at us and I can do that for a lot less than $633.88 for two people through a lot of other venues.

This was great experience, truly amazing. I did this with my husband as a date. Just know when you book you meet early in the morning. So if traveling make sure you get rest before taking this trip. The staff is very professional, and watch out for your safety. We got to watch the sunrise in the morning then have a mimosa afterwards. Such a great date!

Fantastic Experience!!
Aug 2021
My wife and I had a fantastic time and experience with Las Vegas Hot Air Balloon Ride. I can't stress enough what a well run, organized and friendly business operation. From being picked up at the Hotel to the drop off, every employee we were in contact with was genuinely friendly, happy and up beat. The ride itself was flawless and smooth. Literally floating in the air like a feather. Our Pilot was as experienced as you can get in that he competes around the world in operating the hot air balloons. He was informative, friendly and just made us feel as secure as you can be.
If in Vegas and want to do something you will always remember I highly recommend this event!

Birthday Surprise!
Aug 2021
My wife and I were in Las Vegas with friends to attend a convention and to celebrate her birthday. For her birthday, we decided to surprise her with her first hot air balloon ride. Despite waking up at 2:30 a.m. to leave the hotel at 3:30 a.m. and arrive at the LV Balloon Ride office at 4:30 a.m. for an hour van into the Nevada desert (Pahrump), the experience was incredible. The entire LVBR crew were engaging, funny and customer-service driven. Our pilot, Jeff was highly experienced and passionate about ballooning. From the very first moment, we knew we were in good hands. When the ride was over, my wife was ready to go again! Many thanks to Jeff and the crew at LVBR for making our first ballooning experience so memorable. We hope to do it again in the near future.

The Moments That Take Our Breath Away
Aug 2021
We awoke to our alarm set at 3:30 AM, as most folks in Sin City are ending their night. Some individuals would just keep going, but at our age, 40/50's that's just not happening. Regardless of the early morning in Las Vegas, the Las Vegas Hot Air Balloon Ride truly was a very special, and do I say, "once in a lifetime" experience. The icing on the cake was the staff, very fun, engaging, and extremely professional. The trip was great, the staff made it even better!

I highly recommend Las Vegas Hot Air Balloon Ride!
