Had my first hot air balloon experience last week. It was amazing. So peaceful up there and great views of the sunrise. Loved the champagne breakfast too.

“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

We had a wonderful morning on our ballon ride - yes pick up at 4.15 was early but we chose to stay at Surfers Paradise which made this pick up time - the weather was a bit contrary so we had to drive an extra 40 minutes to launch site but we had a wonderful balloon ride - not distance wise but height and travel was great. The landing (which my husband was worried about) was almost perfect - one little bump and then it was touchdown. Breakfast was nice and the celebratory champagne topped it off. Was interesting to get an understanding on how it all operates - up higher we went north down lower south - all explained by the pilot - the crew gave the pilot a hard time as he landed a bit further away in the paddock (they said 3 klms but it was only 1.6 from the gate) - but that made for a bit of banter and some laughs. have a look at www.hotair.com.au/goldcoast - certainly one off the bucket list

“Nice flight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

We were picked up at 4am. As we were the first to be picked up by Hot Air that morning, the bus journey was abit long. The view from the top was breathtaking and we get to see nice views of the valley. The basket was overcrowded with 21 pax. There was no space for us to move around. Overall, we really enjoyed our tour. Special thanks to the crew from Hot Air.

“Great time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

I've always wanted to go for Hot Air balloon flight. It was amazing watching the sunrise while up high drifting over the country. Time really flies when we were enjoying the breathtaking view. The staff are very professional and great! Money well spent for!
