This was absolutely worth it, what a view of the city from up here and the staff made the experience even better. It's difficult because of how weather dependent it is but they make such an effort to give everyone the best experience possible!

It was a way TOO expensive for the 2 or 5 minutes flight. The team is nice but you have 2 minutes of interaction. And everything has to go very quickly. Time is money and you can feel it!!!! I will not recommanded this experience...More

I am so sorry to hear you were disappointed. The duration of the flight depends on the amount of lift available at the time. If there is sufficient lift we will still stay up for up to 30 minutes. Unfortunately on the morning that you...More

Hi, I've been twice and it depends on the wind. If you have decent wind, it can last up to 15 mins, but my first flight was less than 10 mins. Very quick - the only negative, I'd say. Jane
