Up, up, and Away!
The new attraction at Navy Pier is a 10-minute balloon ride 350 feet in the air. The balloon's gondola can carry up to 17 people at a time. Those 10-minute panoramic views will cost you though. Tickets for adults are $25 each and $15 each for children 12 and under. For the big spender, "Speed Line" tickets are available for an additional $5 peer ticket ($30 for adults; $20 for children). The Speed Line ticket shortens your wait time, according to the balloon ride's Web site.
