On May 23rd, the Torquay HiFlyer welcomed its first passengers. The tethered balloon now provides regular flights from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. (weather permitting) inviting passengers to re-discover the Bay from an absolutely new perspective in a thrilling journey 400ft (120m) above the coastline.
The HiFlyer flight is suitable for everybody – child and adult alike; the gondola can comfortably accommodate up to 30 passengers. It allows every passenger an unhindered view and is highly accessible for a standard (lightweight) wheelchair with open weave viewing port ensuring the view is not obstructed.
Certificated by Civil Aviation Authority, the Lindstrand HiFlyer provides a safe and thrilling experience of the balloon ride and the memory of a lifetime. It is the third member of the HiFlyer family in the United Kingdom: the HiFlyer ride is also available in Leeds Castle, Kent and Bournemouth.
