Highlights / General details
Our flights originate near the Colorado Springs Airport. Our balloon systems are mobile command centers allowing Adventures Out West to choose from several launch sites. This helps to ensure your flight will be a success in the event of changing wind patterns.
At the highest flight levels, snowcapped mountains, rivers and high plains are visible for over 100 miles in all directions. Floating lower over the foothills and ranch land you will often see deer, coyotes, jack rabbits, and even pronghorn antelope ... animals that are normally too shy to let you approach when you are walking on the ground.
Our post-flight celebration features a champagne toast, orange juice, fresh fruit, pastries … presented with glass stemware, table cloth and flowers - all with an incredible view! Each new aeronaut receives a Flight Certificate suitable for framing. We also provide a FLIGHT VIDEO posted at the Adventures Out West channel on YouTube. Show your friends back home how much fun you're having!
