Luxurious Hot Air Balloon Rides in Tucson, AZ

Embark on the journey of a lifetime with our hot air balloon rides in Tucson, AZ. When you float through the air, you’ll feel a newfound sense of freedom that you’ll remember for years to come. Our hot air balloon rides offer a unique experience, unlike any other, you’ll find in the area. Many customers choose us for our hot tub balloon ride, the first of its kind.

For more than 34 years, Balloon America has maintained a reputation as the premier company in the industry. Since our founding, we’ve flown more than 150,000 passengers through Tucson’s east side and the La Mariposa Resort. You’ll see scenery and landscapes you’ve never seen before, all from the comfort and security of a hot air balloon. For your convenience, we offer secure parking, clean bathrooms, and in/outdoor catering for groups of up to 1000 people.

Our chief pilot and founder began his career as a Fortune 100 corporate executive. After gaining years of experience in this role, he decided to start down a new path in the hot air balloon business. Throughout our history, we’ve achieved success by focusing on delivering safe and luxurious hot air balloon rides, as well as allowing local businesses to take advantage of our airship advertising.

Delivering a Memorable Experience

Whether you’re looking to have a hot air balloon wedding or you’re simply looking for an adventure while on vacation, we have you covered. We pride ourselves on offering an exclusive, one-of-a-kind look at the beautiful Santa Catalina Mountains. You won’t find this flight path anywhere else, so when you’re looking for a unique experience, you can count on our rides to make the trip truly special.

We also offer hot tub balloon rides, where you can relax in a personal hot tub, thousands of feet above the Earth. The tubs can accommodate two people and are filled with spring water. For insulation, we also add 435 ping pong balls which keep the water temperature at 104 degrees Fahrenheit.

Every balloon gondola is equipped with a mounted, wide-angle camera which captures you and your guests with the scenery behind you. Additionally, our drones record the balloon ride experience, starting from lift-off, and then follow for a few minutes before returning to port. The drone provides close-ups of the basket and the landscape around us. All of the footage and images captured are provided to you after the trip, with the video edited to include titles and music.

The Safest Hot Air Balloon Ride Company

Like any aircraft, our top priority is always your safety. To provide you with the assurance that you’re in the safest hands, we require all pilots to maintain a first-class medical certification from the FAA. Commercial airliners require this certification as well, which ensures that our pilots are in peak physical and mental condition to fly.

In their combined 6000 hours of flight time, none of our hot air balloon pilots have ever had an accident or incident. With our 100% flawless flight record, it just makes sense to make Balloon America your destination for a unique balloon ride experience.
