Colorado Springs View from BalloonYour early morning adventure begins as you meet Rainbow Ryders at our headquarters located inside the lobby of The Colorado Springs Hotel Elegante Conference & Event Center. Don’t forget your camera in the car!

After check-in, you’ll step into our chase vehicles and be driven to one of our various launch sites. From there the pilots will begin the inflation process, giving you the opportunity to become an involved, “hands on” crew member as the gentle giants come to life. You may also choose to observe inflation and take pictures as the sun rises. The splendor will unfold before your eyes with the magnificent Pikes Peak as the backdrop.

At lift off you’ll embark upon a journey of uniqueness, and revel in breathtaking panoramic views of the Rocky Mountains while floating across the sky and sending your greetings to the earthbound folks below!

After landing, enjoy a celebratory toast and post-flight refreshments to end your safe and memorable adventure. Last, you will be presented with a flight certificate to commemorate your aeronautical adventure.
