Missouri is full of interesting and unique secrets that you could never imagine. It took us several years to fully believe we knew everything we could about the area and even now, we are still learning new things! The Show Me State has so much to offer in terms of beautiful views and true diversity. To celebrate this stunning state and our appreciation for the blue skies she has given us to sail in we have compiled a list of the most interesting things we have learned about her!
Weird Laws. Every state has them, but some of these are just plain crazy. Keep them in mind though, just because you’re new to our area doesn’t mean you have immunity.
In the business of ballooning you become quite familiar with other aerial activities including the great extreme sport of skydiving. We recently learned that the first successful skydive from an airplane was in 1912 "the same year the Titanic sank" in St. Louis by Captain Berry.
Often times, we get asked to schedule one of our romantic exclusive rides for those out there wanting to propose to their sweethearts. With the romantic sunrise backdrop and champagne toast, this is the best way to get a yes. When you land, book your ceremony in the Bridal Cave in Camdenton, since 1949 the cave has served as an underground venue for over 2000 couples!
Wanna go to the coolest museum in the state? Then head over to city museum. With winding staircases, suspended jet planes and even an adult sized ball pit this is the most awesome theme park for adults! Speaking of things we love and learn about Missouri, did you know that Dr. Pepper and cotton candy were invented here? Yes. During the 1904 World’s Fair both of these legends were introduced!
In ballooning it is all about the scenery. From the beautiful Kansas City Skyline to the Gateway Arch that stands constructed to memorialize the expeditions into the western part of our great country, there are so many things to see in the air. One fact about our company is that our locations vary all over the state which gives you more options than ever to see your favorite places!
Getting to know the area you will be flying over is vital in truly appreciating all of it’s glory. While we know you will enjoy your once in a lifetime experience in one of our hot air balloons, we urge you to take a look at some of the places we have mentioned and discover something new about Missouri.
Very few things are as beautiful as a brightly colored hot air balloon sailing silently across the Missouri sky. The colorful splash across blue skies inspires wistful awe. The only joy greater than the sight is the flight itself; made from high above the Show-Me State!
