On Friday 21 November, 2014 the balloon broke away during a safety check. Untethered it drifted away over Magaliessig (towards the N1) before exploding. The Balloon is currently closed, so watch the local press for details.

For those that want the "higher" view without forking out much. A great view of fourways n surrounds + really safe n exciting for kids

Asked to go up... Was told too windy, next minute we could go up but only if you pay R150 instead of the R70 standard. Take a chance if you want to take a chance you may get ripped off

I have been up in the Hyundai balloon twice and on both occassions it was windy and the trip had to be cut short. I suspect this is often the case. However it is lovely to go up around sunset and see the sun set over Johannesburg.
