RedBalloon is your one-stop shop for experiences and curated gifts. We’re so confident you’ll love what you get from us, we’re offering this promise to you…
We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
This TOP GUN fighter pilot simulator experience is as close as you'll get to flying the real F/A-18 Hornet. Flying at the speed of sound, seeing the ground rush on a bombing run, to shooting for the stars in an Air to Air combat mission. At the Air Combat Centre you'll "feel the need for speed".
Flying a fast jet is one of the most exhilarating experiences you could ever imagine. However it is out of reach for the general public, with only the elite Air Force pilots being able to have this thrill. Until now!
This 30 minute experience will allow you to fully experience the aircraft and the capabilities it really has offer. Strap in and become the Top Gun.
You will be by yourself in the simulator. Your instructor will guide you through the experience.
Flight suit is available. Shoes must be worn in the simulator.
The F/A-18 simulator is used by Defence Force Recruiting to motivate and educate Air Force careers
This experience takes place near Brisbane Airport, QLD.
