The string of the balloons wraps itself around the boys’ wrists and they float into the sky towards the ruined tower. After being captured by the witch Griselda they fall through the void into a magical cavern and Snuggle gets imprisoned in a block of crystal. Unless he can be set free the Gardener will die and with him the Land of Ramion.

The boys must travel through strange lands to get the crystal key, to free Snuggle and save Ramion. On their adventure they journey through the Land of Nothingness, ride some dragons and trudge through the icing of a giant birthday cake. They also meet some wild characters like a lion made out of icing, the rude rabbit Scrooey-Looey and, once they've explored magical cavern, the Key Keeper himself.
