$299 for a Hot Air Balloon Ride for Two ($550 Value)

Couples board giant baskets attached to balloons during semiprivate flights that last approximately 45 minutes. Routes may vary based upon weather and wind direction, and tours depart at sunrise or 2.5 hours before sunset.

Hard Times Ballooning

Beneath the looming curve of a balloon rippling from the heat of a 12-million BTU propane burner, FAA-certified Lighter Than Air pilot and mechanic Layne Wolters takes hot air balloons soaring into the Missouri skies with the skills only years of experience can build. Possessing more than three decades of involvement with the larger-than-life balloons, Wolters mans daily flights at Hard Times Ballooning, ascending at sunrise and 2 1/2 hours before sunset for the best views of superheroes flying to and from home in their street clothes.
