Amazing experience, would definitely do it again. I planned the sunrise trip for me and my boyfriend for his birthday as a surprise on the 28th April whilst we were on holiday! I was a little nervous at first but as soon as we arrived the staff were all very friendly and made you feel at ease. Once we got on to the transfer bus and arrived at one landing site the guys completed their tests but unfortunately the wind had changed and we had to move to a different site a few miles away. They were very organised though and new exactly where to take us next to not waste time. Once we got there they done more tests and all proved to be the right place to take off! Our pilot was Damian, he was really easy to get along with and knew how to make you laugh so early in the morning! He also knew exactly what he was doing whilst up in the air (I felt 100% safe).. Especially when we were due to land - the scary bit. It was a very bumpy landing but he made sure everyone knew what they were to do as we expected the basket to tip due to the wind speed. He landed us very well and everyone on board had a great time! It was nice to celebrate after with a glass or two of champagne and a little buffet breakfast back at the meeting point!
I would recommend this trip to anyone visiting the Orlando area, it was such a great experience and not badly priced!
A few points to be aware of...
1. Make sure to use the toilet at the meeting point as that is the last place you will see one until after the experience.
2. If you feel the cold, take a light cardigan/ jumper. It's not too cold up there, roughly the same temperature as ground but as it's early in the morning it's not very warm.
3. Try not to wear flip flops, as I did. Your feet get very wet on the grass whilst setting up.
3. Remember your camera!! Lots of photo opportunities.
