HOW TO GET TETHERED HOT AIR BALLOON RIDE TICKETS @ PUTRAJAYA
If you really want to try out the hot air balloon ride, you really need to be very early. I reached there around 6.45 AM and our number is already 243 (out of 300 limited tickets). Do note that each person can buy maximum 4 tickets. Looking at the bright side, now there are accurate ticket numbering to assure you can get your ticket without disappointing people who queuing up later.

You might need to queue for a long period of time because the counter open at 7AM and 5PM respectively (got 2 sessions/day). The ticket price is RM20/person and your kid shall be 4ft higher.

 Since there will be a long wait for us to get the tethered hot air balloon rides ticket, thanks to the couple who was queuing in front of us willing to help us buy some tickets (my uncle queuing up at the same time too). Without them I won't be able to catch up the Hot Air Balloons Take Off Session.

After all the balloons took off, we then head over to the tethered hot air ballon ride counter at BLUE ZONE. The weather was really hot so remember to bring your own drinking water. I even saw new married bride and groom taking photo too.

A final picture after the hot air balloon ride
How does it feel to be on a hot air balloon?
Actually I would love to take a hot air balloon ride that will take off and travel to somewhere else. BUT this is a good start and training if you are afraid of height. It really depends on weather if you wanna take this air-ride. The wind was strong and you might get dizzy (I saw kid vomitted), we bounced twice because of the strong force and that gave us extra time on the ride hahaha.

Remember to ask the hot air balloon pilot to take you to the highest point so that your RM20 worth it. I did that and asked the pilot to say hi to my video in return. I was risking my camera by holding it on a tripod outside of the seat, the pilot was very worried that I might drop it down hahaha.

In the end, we all survived and I really wanna share the video with you all asap but it was really tired after half day doing these activities.
