Any weekday arrangements must also be amended during the week and not on public holidays.

What if my balloon flight is cancelled?

The experience provider reserves the right to cancel hot air ballooning events, based on the safety and enjoyment levels dependent on all-important weather. If the forecast is for wild and windy conditions, the pilot will reschedule the event the night before your sunrise hot air balloon ride over Melbourne. Either way, confirmation is provided the night before your scheduled activity. But don’t worry. In the event that your planned activity must be postponed due to weather restrictions or other exterminating factors, rest assured that your hot air balloon ride will still go ahead, at a time to suit the participant and provider alike.
