Enjoy one of the most romantic experiences available, a private hot air balloon ride over the quiet Kansas City countryside.
You will float majestically through the sky in a graceful hot air balloon enjoying the peaceful, tranquil and breathtaking atmosphere of this aerial adventure.
Your FAA certified pilot has over 22 years experience flying hot air balloons and has logged over 1,000 hours as pilot-in-command.
After flying from tree-top level to several thousand feet, your once-in-a-lifetime experience will conclude with a champagne toast and either a breakfast snack or a sunset snack while the crew packs up the balloon.
Ballooning is an intoxicating experience and is a great way to celebrate that special occasion or to spend time with that special someone.
Flights are scheduled at sunrise and just before sunset because that is when the winds are the calmest.
All passengers must be at least 10 years old and be able to climb in and out of the basket and chase vehicle unassisted.

What time are flights scheduled?

What is the temperature in the balloon?
The temperature does not change much from the ground to our top altitude. You lose three degrees every 1,000 feet. So if it is 75 degrees on the ground at 1,000 feet it will be 72 degrees.
What does the flight feel like?
Flying in a balloon is like nothing else you will ever experience! You will become part of the wind gliding above the tree tops. A ride in a balloon is a very smooth, peaceful, enjoyable experience.
Where will we land?
You will land where the wind takes you. Your pilot will steer the balloon using wind directions at different altitudes, but ultimately Mother Nature decides where you will land.
What altitude will we reach?
You will fly anywhere from tree top level to several thousand feet.
What is the balloon made of?
Hot air balloons are made of a polyester or nylon material.
