BECAUSE TRAVELLING IN A HOT AIR BALLOON IS SO DISTINCT FROM OTHER METHODS OF FLIGHT THESE DAYS, IT WILL BE UNLIKE EVERY OTHER JOURNEY YOU CAN HAVE IN THE SKY.
Balloon rides happen in the early morning and late evening. Both scheduled times of day ensure that it won't be awfully hot and it's hard not to enjoy a view like that. For the night owls in the world, the flights at sundown normally occur two or three hours before sunset.
ALL THINGS AROUND YOU, INCLUDING YOUR MEANS OF LIFT, IS AIR.
The moment you are up in the air you will find yourself anywhere somewhere between 500 and 3,000 feet above the ground. In some cases, if the weather is perfect, your pilot can take you up as high as 10.000 feet. Because you find yourself in a balloon, this experience doesn't truly have a specific destination. Typically your balloon will end up travelling somewhere between 2 and 5 miles over the course of around an hour.
This journey is all about you, so you can only assume the best from us. Our pilots are specialists, guaranteed. Every single licensed pilot with Missouri Balloon Rides is a professional accredited by the Federal Aviation Administration.

In history, the first productive venture into the sky was on a hot air balloon. Having lasted all this time from a long time ago in the 1700's, this has emerged as a classic journey.
While the times have absolutely evolved, hot air balloons are still an uncomplicated endeavour. Full of hot air by gas burners, the balloon just over you is a bigger-than-life sight to behold.
Just as there are all sorts of justifications for hot air ballooning, the balloons come in all sizes and shapes. Hot air balloons are rather accommodating too, having the ability to carry as much as 16 people in one go. Having said that, balloons will generally fit 4, 8, 10, and 12 passengers at a time.
As the balloons themselves are hoisted using hot air, it's good to understand how that works. The reason you can enjoy a relaxing and amazing view from up above is simply because cool air is denser than hot. When the balloon is full of hot air it is hoisted into the sky by the cool air all around it. Due to this you can actually hover on air.READ MORE
