Singapore’s first hot air balloon ride takes flight from the month of March onwards. 

Bookings can be done on the Ballons du Monde website, the company behind the attraction. Private group bookings can be made, limited to a maximum of three pax per booking. The launch rate costs $265 per person.

Each 50-minute ride will begin with an introduction to ballooning to ensure the safety of passengers.

Then, a five to seven minutes flight will commence, with free and easy movement on-board. A non-alcoholic celebratory toast will also be provided.

As hot air ballooning is a weather-dependent activity, bookings could be rescheduled if the weather conditions are not appropriate for flying.

Each group is entitled up to one hour in the waiting area, to capture shots of the hot air balloons when the ride has ended. 

Currently, only bookings for two to three people are allowed on the website. However, the group size can be adjusted according to the discretion of the company, considering the passenger weight and weather conditions on the day of the booking. 

The ride is located at 12A Bayfront Avenue, at the open grounds behind the Red Dot Museum.
