Bournemouth ballon is a tethered helium balloon which gives a birds eye view of the city and the coast line from around 500 feet. It costs £12.50 for adults,Child (Aged 2 years to under 14 years) - £7.50 and free for under 2's. Bit expensive i would say for the whole affair. As always i would recommend online booking. The tickets can be purchased from the snck/ticket shop near by.
We enter the balloon along with others and a company guide. A voice commentary starts and lasts till we descend about the local sights.
The balloon do do quite a bit of swinging up in the air as per wind spped but it does feel quite stable up so we do not feeling much. The views are really quite good except for near the balloon were there was some construction going on.
Takes probably 15 minutes for the whole trip.The staff were quite nice volunteering to have your pictures taken before the ride started. Unfortunately there isn't much in terms of souvenirs except a flight certificate(!) offered in the ticket/snack/souvenir shop.
On the whole loved it except for slightly expensive tickets.
