“Excellent exhibit”

Orange County Great Park
Ranked #21 of 49 things to do in Irvine
Attraction details
Reviewed October 30, 2013

This is a former air base with several hangers which are used for exhibits and vendors. There were plenty of rest rooms and a shuttle with stops throughout the exhibits many of which were set up along a runway. There were water stations throughout the exhibits.
The facilities were pleasant and well maintained with volunteers scattered throughout the exhibits to answer questions. This facility could be used for small exhibits as well the very large event we attended. The people of Orange County are very fortunate to have this excellent facility.

Truly a family event for young and old. Handicapped access is a wonderful addition to this amazing ride. Loved the experience and the folks who operate it as a one-of-a-kind "Bucket list" opportunity. Several of the folks in our group expressed some concern about heights, but everybody came back happy and excited about the ride. Not a single whimper as the guide did a great job stressing the safety and security built into this amazing machine.

We went on a 77 degree day.

The Balloon is the main attration. It is kid friendly and fun. But couples have fun with this also.
Not exactly balloons over Napa but it is cool.
You get a nice view of part of OC.
The ballon goes up in the evening also. Cool idea for a date.

The gardens, and other areas of the park need work and development.
I think this is still a future destination. One key advantage this park has is size.
It covers some serious ground.

Excellent location close to I5 but getting to the park is a bit quirky.
Parking is free.

There are great plans for the Great Park but because of funding problems it has not developed the way it was planned. Other than the farmers market on Sunday there isn't much to do.

Bad. Do not waste your time.nothing to do. It looks like a ghost town part of the park under construction the only thing this place is good for is having a picnic inside of a construction zone
