Early to bed, early to rise
Nothing surpasses the beauty of experiencing the sun rise over the fabulous Gold Coast skyline so we start early! Our approximate meeting time is 4.30am in summer and 6.00am in winter. Your tour will last approximately 4 hours.
After assembling together our ground crew will transport you to the launch site (selection based on wind direction). To get the full experience and learn about assembly of our hot air balloon, we invite everyone to assist in preparing the balloon for departure(approximately 20 minutes), however this is optional.
We will require all passengers to complete the registrations forms, your pilot will assist with filling these out and answer any questions that you may have.
Before takeoff your pilot will take you through the required safety procedures. If you have any questions or concerns about the safety please free to ask your pilot.
Many people feel nervous the first time they fly, this is very natural. Please feel assured that hot air ballooning is a very safe activity and our pilots are highly experienced.
