This was an absolutely amazing experience. The views from the balloon were stunning. I'd recommend doing the full hour over the half hour as it was great being up there. We also had a champagne breakfast at O'Reilly's vineyard afterwards which was lovely. Our driver Anton and pilot Dean were hilarious, interesting and you could tell they were passionate about...

We have to be picked up at 3.45am!! But it was really worth an experience! Some time were taken to pick everyone up and we need to get confirmation that it is a good day to do for our safety. So please be cool and relax! The legs get a little wobbly as we go up. The basket can fit... More

This experience was nothing short of superb, and we would highly recommend this company for the way they treat all of their customers, ensuring that every part of the trip from the shuttle pickup, to the ballooning, to champagne breakfast, then back to your hotel was extra special. Our pilot was very experienced and shared his knowledge with us. The... More

Extremely professional people with great sense of humour and superb organisation. Hot Air is 'The' destination for ballooning in Gold Coast. Right from the on time pick-up from the hotels, to the professional commentary and organisation, safety briefing etc., these guys know what they are doing. But the experience on riding the balloon itself and the views from the top... More

I am afraid of heights. Not so much afraid, I get sick...dizzy...panic! So it took a lot for me to take the flight that was given to me as a gift (?) and I procrastinated and stalled and made excuses. Then, I did it. WOW!

We went with Adrenaline Hot Air Balloons. Got washed out the first morning. But rescheduled a few days later and was exceptionally good. No bouncing around and as gentle as could be. Floating high up without a care in the World. Very early morning start but time after to have breakfast. Great morning thrill.
