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 bearing sweet rewards.
During the expedition, Cookies assigned to the team are unavailable in the Kingdom. This means they can not help out in the Kingdom's production activities. However, they can still be used in combat modes.
For each expedition, there is a chance that the Cookies will achieve 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. There is little harm in simply using the Auto-select feature to determine what combination of Vookies will yield the best Super Success odds.
Balloon Expeditions have a set amount of time for completion per Story region, which can shortened through the Croissant Zeppelin Landmark and a upgrade in Kingdom Technologies. Expedition wait time can also be skipped using Crystals or Speed-up tokens.
- Base Rewards: Kingdom EXP, Cookie EXP, Coins
- Random Rewards: Toppings - Common, Rare, Epic; Time Jumpers (starting at Episode 8)
- Super Success Rewards: Topping upgrade pieces, double Coins & EXP
