Does anyone have any information on the balloon accident that occurred yesterday?

It's all good. We were part of about 5 different balloons that took off yesterday AM. No problems for the rest. We did splash and dash - no problems. It's a great tour group. Highly recommend.

I was happy to read that nobody was seriously injured in the crash, but it makes me a little anxious, as Rainbow Ryders is the company that I'll be going up with 2 weeks from today. I'm sure it will be fine; accidents happen to even those with much experience.

Rainbow Ryders is the best company in Abq to do a balloon ride. There always is a chance of an accident, but these folks are the best. Enjoy.

My one and only balloon trip was with Rainbow Ryders. I would not hesitate to go with them again. They are truly professional and safety is a very high priority.

I'll admit to being surprised that the accident was theirs. But it doesn't make me trust them any less.
