Your tour departs just outside of St Louis in the small city of High Ride. You may arrange for hotel pickup from St Louis for an additional cost if you wish. When you arrive at the meeting location, you’ll be taken to the launch site to watch your expert crew assemble and inflate the hot air balloon. If you choose the sunrise departure, you’ll be treated to a beautiful sunrise here as you prepare for your ride.
Hop in the basket with your captain and up to 8 passengers and take to the skies above St Louis. Soak up serene panoramas as you journey over wooded areas, suburbs and farmlands. The unique aerial view of this region is an amazing sight. Don’t forget your camera!
After landing back at the launch site, get ready your post-flight festivities. Celebrate your voyage with your crew and fellow riders with a sparking juice toast . You’ll then receive your own personal flight certificate, lapel pin and specially etched Champagne flute to take home with you, so you can remember this experience forever.
Your hot air balloon ride will last between 45 minutes and 1.5 hours, depending on local conditions, and the whole experience will last approximately 4 hours. Morning flights meet 30 minutes before sunrise, and afternoon flights meet 3 hours before sunset.
