Attraction details
Owner description: Sunrise Balloons is based in Queenstown, New Zealand, flights are scheduled daily, all year round, weather permitting. Queenstown is quite possibly the best landscape in the world to view, and it's even better during a hot air balloon ride followed by a champagne celebration. Come and experience Hot Air Ballooning with us!

it was so much fun to see the balloon inflate and rise, to float in the sky and look at beautiful scenery. we had a very smooth landing too. pictures are worth it but wish they were included in the price as other expensive activities (like paragliding) already include it in the cost of the ride.

“Good Experience overall... Price could be lower”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2011

We had a good balloon experience early in the morning. Our 6yr old kid enjoyed it too. Staff were friendly, informative and easy going. Champaign celebration after landing was fun and enjoyable too.

Only thing we didn't like was the crew asked all of the passengers to do some labour work of folding the huge balloon after landing and pushing it onto their truck! It was not fun, getting our cloths wet and dirty on those long grown grass field.

Also, bathroom facility before we start balloon ride is a must, considering we had family and kids; and the whole attraction lasts more than 3 hours.

For the premium price we pay, the experience could have been better compared to other Queenstown (NZ) adventures and attractions.

From start to finish the staff where great and courteous as it was an early start. We where spoilt because of the time of year as gliding over Arrowtown and the area in Autum made the flight and experience beyound words. Loved it.
