  • The Orange Balloon ride was quite nice, no winds, cool weather and rather serene and surreal when you float up high. It looks like you are looting down on a toy city, even with the train chugging by below, and planes coming in for landing. The ballon can get a little lopsided if everyone is standing on one side. It's a great family event for a ten minute ride. The hanger with history bits on on the area was neat too!
  • good park and balloon ride need to pick a good weather day. 2 doller for 1 ride and 3 dollor for all day is not bad.
  • I must have missed the turn off to the "OC Great Park", because the little I found at this location wasn't anything like what I voted for 15 years ago. Among other details, that park was going to look like this: "the Great Park will be larger than New York's Central Park, San Francisco's Golden Gate Park and San Diego's Balboa Park... and include a 2.5-mile (4.0 km) canyon, a 26-acre (110,000 m2) lake, botanical gardens, a cultural terrace, lawns, performing arts venues, a sports park, and a wildlife corridor connecting the Cleveland National Forest to the Laguna Coast Wilderness." Bait and switch perhaps?
  • Great place for kids to run around, great creation station, and awesome price for carousel ride.
  • Very large cool park with lots to do. The balloon ride is really cool.
