This was a totally exhilarating experience! The pilot was fun, professional and the take-off/landing was very smooth. The added bonus was actually taking part in the deflating, and keeping of the balloon! Definitely recommend to anyone heading to this part of Australia!

The ride was extremely early (picked up at 325am from hotel) but the early morning was absolutely worthwhile. The spectacular view and the fun experience of folding and keeping your own balloon is pretty run! Not to mention the champagne breakfast at the end of the tour, highly recommended!

The only time its acceptable for a wake up call at 2.45am for a 3.45am pick up at the hotel while on holiday on the Gold Coast is Hot Air Ballooning with Hot Air Balloon Gold Coast , totally worth it getting up early to see the balloons being inflated and for a flight over the Gold Coast's Scenic Rim hinterland. Felt safe and had an amazing time, we didn't even notice we were rising high into the air it was such a smooth launch flight into the air on take off. It was great to be able to see the crew pack up the balloon and see it fit in that tiny bag and on the back of the truck. We were even able to hear the animals on the ground up that high! Definitely a unique experience. Our driver Caleb was amusing for the early morning drive from the hotel to the launch sight. We had a champagne breakfast at a local vineyard to celebrate our safe landing which is the traditional thing to do after a balloon flight. Highly recommend flying with these guys. We took the hour long extended flight rather than then standard 1/2 hour option as we were glad we did as there was less people in our balloon and had longer time up higher. We would do it again with these guys. Wasn't scary at all. Every flight is different as the launch site changes depending on the winds as does the landing site so no two flights are the same.
