Spectator Passengers experience the thrill of watching their friends and family “base jump” from the basket with only 20 seconds of free fall to stabilize and pull their chutes….followed by an intimate tour of the Canyonlands and Arches National Parks as the balloon returns to earth in search of an old mining road or other suitable landing spot in the delicate desert landscape. This can take up to another 45 min of breathtaking flight across the ancient sea beds frozen in time.
