The Balloon Dock is a section in the player's Kingdom, unlocked when the Cookie Castle is upgraded to level 2. At the Dock, three to five Cookies can be sent on a Bear Jelly Balloon Expedition to Story Episode regions that have been fully cleared. Once the Expedition is over, the Cookies will return to the Kingdom with rewards in tow, such as Toppings, Topping Pieces, and Time Jumpers.
Cookies on an Expedition temporarily disappear from the Kingdom, and cannot be used in any production activities. However, they can still be used in combat modes.
Each Expedition has a chance for Super Success, granting additional rewards. The stronger the Cookies are (factoring in their Level, Promotion Grade, and Rarity), the higher the chances are for a Super Success. The Auto-select feature can be used while putting together a team of Cookies to automatically determines what combination of Cookies will yield the best Super Success odds. Not all Cookies have to be at maximum Rarity or Level to reach maximum Super Success odds.
Balloon Expeditions have a set amount of time for completion per Story region, which can shortened through both the Croissant Zeppelin Landmark and an upgrade in Kingdom Technologies. Expedition wait time can also be skipped using either Crystals or Speed-ups.
