Hot air balloon flights are available late-June through September. This is the ideal time of the year when the weather cooperates for ballooning here. You have the option of going for that sunrise flight if you are an early bird or the romantic sunset flight. The exact meeting times fluctuate depending on sunrise and sunset because they affect the wind. The meeting times for most of the summer is around 6am for sunrise hot air balloon flights and two hours prior to sunset for evening flights.  The middle of the day in the Snohomish and Seattle area is much too windy.

Over the Rainbow suggest you call about an hour or so before your scheduled flight to make sure the weather is favorable and for any last minute instructions.

Everyone will need to sign a waiver; this is standard in the hot air balloon industry.  Once everyone has arrived and paperwork is in order you will be shuttled to the launch site. Setting up the hot air balloon takes about 15 minutes and then you will board for a once in a lifetime experience. After a quick safety brief you will lift off.

The flight last about an hour and you will be able to relax and enjoy the experience as you drift effortlessly over the picturesque Sammamish Valley. Sometimes the balloon reaches upwards of 4,000 feet where you’ll enjoy panoramic views of the Seattle skyline.

As each flight is unique, because of different wind directions, we don’t know where we will land. The shuttle van has been following along on the ground. We will be in contact visually as well as by radio. The crew will pack up the equipment taking only 10 to 15 minutes, and then we will travel in the van back to the initial meeting site.

After the morning flight you’ll enjoy a traditional champagne and fruit juice toast. In the evening you will be treated to a wine tasting accompanied by light appetizers. This is an event unto itself and ballooning and wine are natural companions.

Over the Rainbow Hot Air Balloon Company looks forward to being a part of your special day, family outing, or just a morning of relaxation.  You get your reservations today by calling 425-861-8611.
