The Experience of a
Lifetime, Happening Right Now!TM
The adventure begins when
Rainbow Ryders picks you up at the Inn at sunrise. From
there we proceed to our launch site where the action begins. We
inflate the hot air balloons giving you the opportunity to
become involved "hands on" as a crew member and help with the
balloon inflation, or you may sit back, observe and take
pictures as the gentle giant comes alive. At lift off you embark
upon a journey of uniqueness. Enjoy breathtaking views of the
majestic Sandia Mountains and Rio Grande Valley while floating
in the sky and sending greetings to earthbound Albuquerque folks
below. After landing, enjoy a champagne toast to end your safe
and memorable adventure. You will be presented with a flight
certificate and balloon flight pin to commemorate your
aeronautical experience. Make sure you bring your camera and
extra film-you will need it. Reservations must be made in
Tours of Old Town
Ghost Tour of Old Town Legends,
folklore, ghost stories and history come to life as you depart
on an intriguing excursion through 300 years of haunted history.
Old Town was founded in 1706, and for more than three centuries
people have lived and died around the Old Town Plaza. The
historic buildings and dark alleys conceal the long-forgotten
secrets of battles, murders, hangings, and hidden cemeteries.
Professional Tour Guides escort you on a 90-minute, lantern-lit
adventure. You will search for the lost souls of early
residents, Civil War phantoms, spooks, specters, wandering
apparitions and over one dozen other ghosts who have made Old
Town their eternal home.
