Rainbow Ryders

Check 'Hot Air Balloon Ride' Off Your Bucket List

Have you ever taken a hot air balloon ride?

If not, you should. My family enjoyed one a few years ago and it’s an experience we’ll never forget. Floating about 2,000 feet above the ground, the only sound that of the burner keeping the balloon aloft.

Peaceful. Beautiful.

Rainbow Ryders’ giant, colorful, hot air balloon baskets can accommodate up to 12 to 14 people, so take the whole family. Sunrise rides happen in Colorado Springs each morning through September—perfect to beat the heat.

Savor breathtaking views of the Rocky Mountains and don’t forget your camera! After flying for roughly an hour, you’ll enjoy a traditional celebratory toast and receive a commemorative flight certificate to remember this one-of-a-kind experience. 

Already been? Gift certificates are great for last-minute gifts or for those who have everything. Redeemable for up to one year after the purchase date, gift certificates offer your special person the flexibility to pick the best time for their hot air balloon adventure.
