Hot air balloon rides shatter the stork community's monopoly on carrying humans in baskets. Democratize the skies with today’s Groupon: for $299, you get a sunrise hot air balloon flight for two with a traditional toast from Balloon AD-Ventures (a $550 value). Flights typically take off from the southern part of the greater Kansas City area.
An experienced pilot safely skims the treetops in one of Balloon AD-Ventures' inflatable aircrafts, guiding passengers through a cool, pink- and orange-tinged atmosphere as the sun slowly ascends. During the flight, a thoughtful Valentine's Day gift idea, passengers hear the wind and wingbeat of fugitive Pegasi in their ears while they glide above treetops and rolling fields. Eyes and cameras espy panoramic views brimming with wildlife such as deer, hawks, and great blue herons, which sail gracefully through the downtown skyline, silhouetted against illuminating sunrays. After the flight, passengers toast flutes of bubbly champagne or ginger ale to celebrate a successful mooring.
Balloon AD-Venture requires calling the day of your flight for a flight confirmation, as balloons will not scrape the clouds in the event of high winds, excessive heat, or rebellious moonbeams that have stayed out after curfew. Balloon AD-Ventures are usually three to four hours long.
Balloon AD-Ventures' pilots deftly guide their balloon baskets low enough for passengers to pluck leaves from the trees. Alternatively, they can ride the wind to altitudes of up to 3,000 feet, which showcase views of the downtown skyline and wildlife. Since 1985, the company has flown groups over South Kansas City and across the US on aerial balloon adventures.
