Enjoy a charming ride with Rainbow Ryders!




Your adventure begins before sunrise when you meet our Pilots and Crew at Schnepf Farms for our Queen Creek flight. After checking in, we will head out to our launch site and from there you will have the opportunity to become involved "hands on" as a crew-member, helping with the balloon inflation. If taking in the scenery is more your style, simply enjoy the view around you and take pictures as the stunning balloon comes alive.  After landing you will enjoy a celebratory toast - a tradition dating back over 200 years by early French balloonists - post flight food catered by Wildflower Bread Co. and be presented with a flight certificate to conclude your safe and memorable adventure.
