To view the world from a Rainbow Ryder hot air balloon is an aspirational item on the bucket list of many adventurers.
The hills, dales and hues of the Sonoran Desert are a sight to see from any angle, but perhaps the best vantage point is from high above. To view the world from a hot air balloon is an aspirational item on the bucket list of many adventurers. Rainbow Ryders makes the dream a reality with their fleet of forty colorful balloons piloted by professional, commercial hot-air balloon pilots.
As the premier and largest hot air balloon business serving the Southwest since 1983, Rainbow Ryders provides both locals and visitors a unique view of Scottsdale’s varied terrain. For visitors, the experience is a unique way to orient, and for locals, it allows for a new and fresh perspective.
Magical and exhilarating, the serene and peaceful experience affords vistas for miles and miles in every direction. Hot air balloon passengers enjoy a bird’s eye view of the North Scottsdale/North Phoenix mountains, the desert and Lake Pleasant during a golden-hour, sunrise balloon flight, or at sunset, when the full and vibrant colors of the setting sun are their most spectacular.

“A hot air balloon experience is at the same time exhilarating, thrilling and peaceful as you soar through the sky, glide in the air, and soak in all the landscape from above,” Rainbow Ryders’ President and CEO Scott Appelman says. “To experience the world’s most spectacular, breathtaking sights from this vantage point is truly a unique activity to experience with family, friends. A Rainbow Ryders balloon fight creates the most treasured memories.”
