    The hot air balloon ride was really safe and fun! Despite the price tag, it’s acrually worth it as it was really labour intensive. Our driver/guide, Bill, was super friendly and nice too!

    It’s really a once in a lifetime experience, ride is very stable and safe, view was just soooo breathtaking. I didn’t manage to catch the sunrise but I don’t feel sad cuz if we were to rush for it, we need to wake up even earlier! Morning pick up was smooth with little delay maybe due to the fact that I was second stop. Service by the vendor (Scenic world) was great! Worth the price as you will realize it’s pretty labor intensive and the expertise needed to ensure a stable and smooth ride!

    I would like to share my unpleasant experience of taking the Hot Air Balloon Flight (Managed by Scenic Day Tour Group) in Gold Coast on 7th May 2018 with those who may have interest in trying to take similar flights in their forthcoming trips to Australia. I had to say I was terribly disappointed with the flight which was the worst balloon riding experience I ever had. I certainly knew that the weather/wind would affect the performance of the balloon riding, however, despite the weather, I would think the professionalism of the pilot and the running company were also key factors to a successful and enjoyable flight for tourists. My friend and I (both are 1.7m height) were asked to stay with 1 Asian couple and 1 European couple in the upper right rack. A total of 6 people were all jammed in a small rack of 4ft x 1ft. Without noticing that the landing method of that flight was unusual of which passengers had to lie down when landing and with the reliance of the professionalism of the pilot, we were unable to voice out the over-crowded problem by that time. However, that was a disaster for all of us when the pilot allowed the basket to freely fall down and we all forced to lie and land. Since we did not have enough space in the rack and I even could not have a space to stand or lean my back against the edge of the rack properly, I fell down onto my friend's body and hurt her leg eventually. In fact, I could not understand why the pilot asked 6 of us to stay in a rack when he clearly understood that passengers were required to lean their back against the edge of the rack when landing. Shoulders of 4 people were already fully occupied the usable edge of the rack while 6 people in the same rack meant passengers were required to lie above others. No doubt that was not acceptable and caused injuries to passengers finally. After landing, the pilot did not say anything and just went ahead to tidy up his balloon. We were not sure if that was safe to move or not so all passengers just stayed without moving which made the body on body situation even worse. He did not even give a simple instruction to ask those passengers in the lower rack to move out first and those in the upper rack to move out when ready. I did not think this was normally what a pilot should do. Needless to say, the pilot had no concern on the safety of his passengers. He did not seem to care any passengers at all. Since my friend hurt her leg, I burst to anger and shouted for help. The pilot then asked us if we had any problem and were we hurt. I told him "yes" but he did not take any action and offer any assistance to us. Frankly speaking, I never came across a pilot with such a bad attitude so I had no other alternative but to alert other tourists of this unbelievable incident. Not only there was problem with the pilot's attitude, I also had doubt of his driving technique. The pilot continuously added heat to the balloon but the balloon only maintained at a height of around 100 - 150 ft above the ground. He had no intention to fly higher though other balloons flew much higher than ours. I could only think that he did not let the balloon fly higher was because he needed more time to take photos for us. During a 30 minutes fly, he took photos for us 5 times and each with 4 shots. Obviously, he wanted us to buy photos rather than we enjoyed the flight. In addition, I noted that the balloon was hotter than normal ones so I had reservation to believe the balloon could meet the safety guide in the country. Besides, different from other balloon flight companies which issued completion certificates to passengers, this company only offered a leaflet after the flight. There was no name or date on it which was not ideal at all. I would sincerely request other tourists to seriously consider whether they should fly with this balloon flight company in their trips. I would also reserve the right to file this bad experience to some public media and to some other relevant entities such as Australia Tourism Board.

    Great view and the flight is safe. The landing is really smooth without bumps. Great experience!
  • CLARISSA ANGELES 16 Jun 2018
    At first we were scared. The thought of flying inside a hot air balloon is quite frightening.. But when we took off with the experienced pilot..our fear was changed to excitement. It was a great flight with balloon aloft. The driver who fetched us was funny. Thanks, guys!!

    Good, on time but unfortunately someone at mercure hotel was late and we had to wait for almost 1 hour in the car.
  • Chun Tan 12 Apr 2018
    Very pleasant experiences. Well-explained instructions given by tour guide. The only reservation is we waited for almost an hour to get all passengers on board, and we woke up at 2 am something. Hope they could have better logistic arrangement next time
  • Wai Yan 11 Apr 2018
    The scene 18000 feet above the sea level was indeed stunning! Although I was asked to wake up at 3am but waited for others to get on the bus till 5am.....
  • DHRUV 14 Mar 2018

  • Sheng xue 4 Jan 2018
    good experience. but there's not much hot air balloon around whereby u can take a nice photo of it when u are up there. one thing to take note is that u will have to help them up in keeping the balloon when landed which I didn'texpect it.
