A hot air balloon ride had an unusual ending for one crew this weekend. After flying in the balloon festival, the crew needed a clear spot to land.
They hit their mark and wound up inside the Magnolia Mound Plantation. The problem: the gates were locked and they couldn't get out. The crew waited for about two hours until maintenance came and found the keys needed to let them go free.
The director of special facilities says she's just happy no one was hurt.
