We love to have fun here at the Bungalows and the experience we would like to highlight this season is the hot air balloon flight offered by Branson Balloon.
If riding in a hot air balloon is on your bucket list, we highly recommend that you go for it while visiting the Ozarks!
Branson Balloon pilot, Rodney Williams, has been flying for 30 years. He and his team offer flights within southwest Missouri and northwest Arkansas with early morning and evening departures.
It’s not an amusement park ride—This is the real deal. Soar 500 to 1,000 feet above the rolling hills and lakes. Embrace the breathtaking views!
You may even wish to schedule an in-fight celebration. The crew has hosted many special occasions including engagements, birthdays, anniversaries, elopements and celebrations of life.
What to expect:
First, you will arrive at a meeting point. Once the party is present, the takeoff location will be disclosed. The group will rendezvous there, and the team will begin to unload and assemble the balloon. Lend a hand if you like!
Once the basket and balloon are connected, the balloon is inflated. This process only takes a few minutes, and it is breathtaking, so be sure to grab some photos!
Next up, you’ll be directed to board the craft. Photos are not to be taken during liftoff—It’s the perfect moment to find yourself in the present moment.
While airborne, you’ll see the world from a whole new perspective. You may be surprised at the quiet calm you discover.
If you’re popping the question, feel free to proceed. Rodney will try to give you the privacy you need for your special moment!

Flights are roughly an hour long. Rodney carefully calculates his desired landing location and communicates with the chase team. At the end of the trip, expect a graceful landing.
Now it’s time to pack up and celebrate with the Balloonist’s Prayer. Learn a bit of hot air balloon history, toast to a safe landing and sip champagne (or a non-alcoholic version) from your new souvenir cup!
Let Branson Balloon take your adventures a NEW level!
