What: Hot Air Balloon Rides during Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta 2016. Come and experience the majestic morning skies of Albuquerque and see the hundreds of balloons and special shapes as you check an item of your bucket list.
When: This information applies to flights that occur on Oct 1 through Oct 9. All flights depart at or just after sunrise.
Where: Our Flights depart from Rio Rancho, NM near Unser Blvd NOT Balloon Fiesta Park
Who: Anyone who can physically climb into the basket and withstand a balloon flight they can be a little bumpy on landing on rare occasions and are not recommended for people with back trouble, pregnant women etc. We will make every effort to accommodate all parties, guests with higher than average weights are encouraged to inquire, as people are people to us.
Why don’t you fly from Balloon Fiesta field?
2 reasons, 1 its way more expensive because we would have to pay to launch every flight from there. 2. The traffic getting into the field starts at 4am. We prefer to sleep in and launch from less congested area.
Will I still be able to see the Balloon Fiesta Balloons, activities?
Yes (only exception is if the weather did not cooperate and your makeup flight was in the afternoon.) The field and balloons will be about 4.5 miles away from us but you will have a dramatic panoramic view of the area and balloons participating in the event.
Do you fly in the afternoons?
Occasionally, but we do not allow reservations for these flights because ballooning is very weather dependent. We reserve afternoon flights for making up missed morning flights.
I am not here for the entire period and I live out of town, what happens if we cancel?
We do NOT believe in being paid for something we did not do. If the weather does not cooperate, you will receive a credit toward any of our services or a full refund at your choice. However, if you fail to cancel, reschedule your flight at least the night before you will lose your 50% deposit.
