So disappointed, our experience didn’t happen and nobody has contacted us. We have tried ringing and emailing.

Our original date got cancelled due to bad weather, we asked for the day after and was told we will be contacted. Nobody has contacted us, we don’t have any other days to do it as we move on and it was for a 70th Birthday celebration. Such bad service. We await a refund.

Enjoyable, safe, peaceful experience with an early rise and buffet breakfast afterwards!

We enjoyed this new experience, although an early rise, it was fun, exciting, exhilarating. The flight captain was fun and energetic, the flight was safe, calm and scenic, the landing fun, passengers got involved in packing up the balloon at the end which was amazing. Get plenty of sleep and don't stress, it's safe and enjoyable. Breakfast at Sheraton Mirage was great too.

Great morning of ballooning! Would recommend!! Would go again!!

Amazing experience! Great customer service we were picked up from our building then taken on the journey out to the balloons. When we arrived they were being inflated and the real excitement began. Seamlessly the balloon was fully inflated and we were loaded on to the basket to experience the tranquility of the flight with the amazing views we could see the Gold Coast and Brisbane from the air. The ride was amazing the landing went well and we all disembarked and watched the deflation begin. After the experience we were then loaded up and dropped off where we were picked up. Would recommend this experience professional company happy to answer any and all questions we had.
