by Annie The South Dakota Hot Air Balloon Ride That Is Being Called One Of The Best In America
You have seen South Dakota from deep inside the Wind Cave, whist chugging along on the 1880 Train, and even from the eyes of prehistoric residents… what is next? While you cannot go wrong with any means of seeing the Mount Rushmore State, one of our favorite ways is from high up in the sky, which is precisely how you will see it during this world-renowned South Dakota hot air balloon ride:
Taking flight out of Custer is Black Hills Balloons, a 35-year South Dakota tradition that is being called one of the best hot air balloon rides in the country!
Established in 1984, Black Hills Balloons consists of four professional pilots and several colorful balloons that fly over Custer State Park, the Badlands, and Wind Cave National Park.
Taking off at sunrise, you can expect to see not only gorgeous skies on your trip but also the quintessential South Dakota landscape (valleys, mountains, and lakes) and wildlife.
With all of this included, it should come as no surprise that Black Hills Balloons has received multiple TripAdvisor Certificates of Excellence and a mention on USA Today's
10 Best Hot Air Balloon Rides.
Noted for its views of the colorful Black Hills, this South Dakota hot air balloon ride is listed with other national companies like Napa Valley Aloft, Lake Tahoe Balloons, and Rocky Mountain Hot Air, making this recognition all the more prestigious.
Rides with Black Hills Balloons begin at $295 for adults and $245 for children ages 4 to 12 and take off every morning at sunrise.
For more information on Blacks Hills Balloons — or to book your trip — please visit their

Address: Custer, SD 57730
