Anybody do the Great Park Balloon thing?

Post by Charles »

We were thinking of doing it today but it is not very clear - would want to do it on a really clear day.
It is supposedly free (my favorite word in the world).
Anyone experience long lines? Would we expect them today?

I heard it was really lame.

It is unimaginably lame.

I just called they said one hour would be a minimum wait. Probably won't go. If the line was 15 minutes or less I'd go for sure - especially if it was really clear.

The gondola can hold only so many...and the round trip must take 10-15 minutes.

My wife's best friend took her kids and said it's really cool for the views of course. It is free however on the weekends the lines are super long. I want to take my family but my wife is not great with heights so will see?
