    Stop At: Custer, SD 57730, USA

    Reservations are required. We meet our passengers each morning at a central meeting location in Custer, SD. Passengers will park their vehicles and travel to the launch field in one of our insured Black Hills Balloons vans.

    Duration: 15 minutes

    Stop At: Custer, SD 57730, USA

    Once you arrive to the field, our crew gets to work unloading and preparing the aircraft while passengers are briefed and take photos. The balloon takes 20 minutes to prepare for flight and once ready, passengers are requested to board.

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: Custer, SD 57730, USA

    The flight is approximately one hour, determined by weather and available landing locations. Upon landing, our ground crew will pack the balloon while passengers and pilot celebrate the flight with complimentary champagne, light snacks and a story about the origin of hot air ballooning.

    Duration: 2 hours
