During approximately four hours, guests arrive in time to watch—or help—the balloon inflate as the sun rises. Then, pilots propel up to ten passengers through clear blue skies for up to 60 minutes as they take in the picturesque scenery and landmarks of St. Louis and Jefferson counties on a hot air balloon ride. Afterward, guests are treated to a commemorative flight certificate, lapel pin, and a toast in a keepsake champagne flute, as the crew discusses the history of hot air balloons.
Balloons Over the Rainbow
As soon as the sun crests the horizon, the crew at Balloons Over the Rainbow is already hard at work, inflating balloons and assembling the gondolas that will soon take flight over St. Louis. After fashioning the craft, crewmembers and passengers gently float upward like a levitating children’s magician to hover above the metro area for a cloud's eye view of local attractions and flora and fauna. Balloons Over the Rainbow prioritizes its passengers’ safety, providing peace of mind throughout each skyward sojourn via a perfect balloon safety record and stringent security policies. After their scenic and safe trip, groups return to the ground to celebrate with a toast that includes a commemorative flute etched with pictures of the balloons and a passage of the Balloonist's Prayer.
