I cannot recommend this highly enough. The whole experience was amazing, definitely a bucket list exerience. The staff are friendly and help make the experience what it is. The only downside is it is over too soon. Give it a go.

I went on the Combo 60 minute experience, the flight up the coastline to the Sea Cliff Bridge was amazing, Then back along the escarpment to North Beach and into the barrel rolls and loop the loops. What an experience.

Unique and ridiculously exciting. An adventure of a lifetime that I was fortunate enough to experience. The crew were super friendly, helpful and told me all I needed to know. I've already recommended it.
