After watching The Ugly Truth just a few days ago, I realize I really want to ride a hot air balloon soon. You need to see it so you can understand where I am coming from but it is safe to say that it is one of the highlights of the movie.
While the movie shot on location somewhere, I would prefer to ride a Sedona hot air balloon ride over Arizona because the view and landscape is simply more stunning! Imagine riding on a Sedona hot air balloon just before sunrise – you get to see the rocky terrains of the Arizona dessert in all its fiery glory! Sedona hot air balloon rides are being given by Sky High Balloon Adventures. Imagine riding a hot air balloon like this:
The tour consists mainly of these:
The Take Off:
They only have rides during sunrise so you will be expected to drive off to the launch site to meet with your pilot early in the morning.
Watch the sunrise during your ascent, after a gentle lift-off, you’ll be gliding over the Verde Valley.
Once you land, a commemorative picnic and chase crew awaits you. The pilot will then give you a history of ballooning and present you will a commemorative certificate of your flight.
The tour lasts three to four hours with the flight lasting anywhere between one and one and a half hours depending on the wind and the pilot’s discretion.
