If you have a large group or would like to fly on a weekend, it’s recommended that you book two weeks in advance. If you have predetermined dates far in advance then let us know as soon as possible so we can secure your spot immediately.

Although we need some wind to fly the balloon, we can’t fly if there is too much wind. We fly early morning because the winds are at their calmest. Also, a lower ambient temperature means that it is easier to get the balloon off the ground and keep it in the air and we don’t need to heat it to such a high temperature. This in turn means we don’t use so much gas and can fly longer. We also want our passengers to be able to see the spectacular Gold Coast sunrises.
Our largest balloon can carry up to twenty four passengers plus the pilot.
Flights generally last an hour, however a balloon can remain airborne for longer periods, subject to fuel supplies.
We go where the wind goes. However, the wind does go in different directions at different altitudes and so by ascending and descending we can take advantage and select a wind direction that is consistent with our predetermined flight path.
You can expect an unrivalled feeling of freedom and exhilaration as you gently float above the magnificent Gold Coast skyline.
Generally it doesn’t get much colder than what it is on the ground. You don’t feel any wind because you are moving at the same speed as the wind. We also find that the burner acts as an excellent provider of heat.
