Balloon Fly in Budapest

Has anyone tried the Balloon Fly in Budapest city park? If so, what was your experience

We did Balloon Fly in September. It was a neat experience but not one I would do every time I'm in Budapest.
It provides a different perspective of the city, which was interesting.

Once you've boarded, you'll stay in one spot for the duration. It's about 5 minutes to the 'top,' and another 5 minutes for observation, and then 5 minutes to get back down. It has a slight sway but nothing traumatizing.

Did you make a previous reservation or just show up? Was there a waiting line? We are going late April perhaps on Tuesday

We just walked up to the booth and purchased tickets and boarded the next session.

They only advertise in Forints; but its not inconceivable that they will give you a sort of padded price in Euro to sell a ticket. But you really should be wandering around with a little local currency in your pocket. Visit an ATM. At 8.500 ft per ticket, sort of pricy. Go and report back.

There is no advance purchase right now, and I would not count on a credit card machine (but dont really know)

It's 8500HUF now? We paid 7000 in September.

We paid with card and Euros were not an option.
