About This Experience

General Information hide

This Hot Air Balloon Flight in Kansas City begins at sunrise or two hours before sunset, at the launch site in Overland Park. Upon arrival, you will help inflate the balloon and climb into the basket while the pilot continues to use the burner to heat up the air inside the balloon, until it becomes "lighter than air".

The balloon will gradually ascend above the tree tops and several thousand feet into the sky. As you float over Johnson County, you will travel at wind speed for approximately one hour. Along the way, enjoy spotting wildlife and waving to onlookers on the ground. The most exciting part of this hot air ballooning experience is seeing Kansas from a whole new perspective!

After descending down, your hot air balloon ride concludes with either a breakfast or a sunset snack, followed by a wonderful champagne ceremony. This Kansas Hot Air Balloon Ride is an amazing airborne adventure, perfect for any occasion and is sure to create lasting memories.
