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.
Your mission - should you choose to accept it - is to strap yourself into one of the most exciting helicopters ever built: the jet powered McDonnell Douglas 500E. This is your chance to immerse yourself in a private 30 minute 'doors off' military-style flight experience.
Immerse yourself in a cinematic style Black Ops helicopter experience high above Sydney. For the more adventurous this Black Ops flight is an adrenalin filled doors off mission, where your experienced pilot will manoeuvre the military grade helicopter at an impressive 130 knots (240 kph) over Sydney! This is the perfect adventure for up to four people to explore the full military flight experience.
Suit up for a preflight briefing where you’ll also be fitted out in a flight helmet with a personal GoPro attached, capturing not only your mission experience but the full walk up and action around the aircraft prior to departure. Note: If your head is too big for the flight helmet we will supply you with a headset and handheld (tethered) GoPro instead!
After the flight mission, the footage is given to you to keep as a memento of your time spent in the “500”.
In an Australian first, this is no ordinary helicopter flight, you will experience the legendary aircraft made famous in so many feature films including Apocalypse Now, The Italian Job & Mission Impossible. So adrenalin-inducing it should come with a health warning.
