I'm not going to say anything about blowing/filling up condoms because it
would get me in trouble.

But, I was thinking... scary isn't it. Would it be possible to use a small
CPU cooling fan to float the puck. As I recall, they are 5 volts and draw
very little current. If using batteries on the puck adds too much mass, you
could always use coiled "cat whisker" wires to power the fan on the puck.

Of course, one could always go overboard and make a little mini Tesla system
with each puck fan powered by the induced EMF from small coils mounted on
top of them. Hmmmm.... I just may have a Winter project. Whoo Hoo!

For "enhanced comedic effect" nothing could beat a condom.
