A company offering hot air balloon rides over the Valley opened the doors at its newest facility in Glendale on Dec. 6.
Rainbow Ryders’ 14,000-square-foot facility near Northern and 103rd avenues gives passengers a place to check in, meet their pilot, and check out the hangar before they embark on a ride that peaks over 1,000 feet in the air.
The company said the new office will eventually have an event space that can host weddings and other private events.
“We are excited to now be operating out of the West Valley and welcoming passengers to our new custom facility,” Scott Appelman, founder and CEO of Rainbow Ryders, said in a press release. “The larger space allows for more growth opportunities in the Valley and we can’t wait for everyone to experience what we have in store for 2024 and years ahead.”
Rainbow Ryders has two other locations: one in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and another in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Sunrise excursions start at $179 and run up to $225 per adult, depending on the day. Sunset rides are $189-$250. Kids are always $125.
The company does not allow children 5 and younger or people who are pregnant to ride in their hot air balloons.
You can book a flight and learn more about what each trip entails on Rainbow Ryders’ website.
