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.

Pueblo Balloon

Pueblo Balloon's skilled pilots have been cruising gentle air currents in their colorful balloons for over 30 years. From the safety of a basket, they unveil panoramic views of the arcing earth, the sun above mountains, exposing the desert valley below in the Taos Valley. After the balloon alights upon the ground, the staffers keep the experience going. They treat guests to a champagne toast and a light snack, and give them a commemorative certificate. The crew also sets the tone for each celebration with a short lesson on the origins of hot-air ballooning and how to identify which clouds would yield the fluffiest pillow stuffing.
