A balloon ride is a breathtaking adventure, and the memories will last a lifetime. The sensation, views, and freedom will never be forgotten. In Missouri we fly year-round, weather permitting. Flights are scheduled in the morning shortly after sunrise and in the afternoon prior to sunset. Rides last forty-five minutes to one hour, with the entire adventure lasting about 3 hours. The balloons will fly as low as treetop level to as high as 2,000-3,000 feet above the ground. The balloon travels with the direction of the wind, therefore each flight launch site and landing area is different.
