Went on a 10 min ride with my partner
Zimba Wangchuk 2 years ago

Went on a 10 min ride with my partner, was exciting being on a helicopter for the first time but wasn’t that great and the quiet ride didn’t add much to the experience. An interactive experience with the pilot would have been better and longer flights would probably make it enjoyable.

Great service at affordable price
Subhashchandra Patel 2 years ago

Great service at affordable price. Friendly and very helpful staff. Nice flight. Also, the pilot has really good commanding over instructions. Safety is the main concern at this ride. My son enjoyed a lot we had truly a thrilling experience. 10/10! Will go again for the long flight next time. Thanks to Experience Oz.

Great fun
Fran Turner 3 years ago

Great fun. Son who had never been in a helicopter before had a blast. Great views and very friendly staff and pilot. Felt safe throughout the whole flight, helicopters were comfortable and very spacious. We arrived early and were put on the flight straight away.

Awesome experience for the whole family
Elliot Brady 3 years ago

Awesome experience for the whole family! The attendants & the pilot were so friendly. We all really enjoyed the wonderful views of the Gold Coast, from a different perspective. Not the cheapest activity, but certainly worth the expense for the looks on their faces! Something they will remember for a long time to come.

Best Helicopter experience ever
Saami Bin Moinuddin 4 years ago

Best Helicopter experience ever. Gold Coast 5 minutes Scenic Helicopter flight is one of the rare experience anybody can have! The views of the Gold Coast is amazing and spectacular. Just beside the beach whole Gold Coast City looks like an expensive treasure which can’t be explained in words. My whole family has enjoyed the trip and amazing views we have enjoyed. Especially the spectacular views of the Gold Coast city and Surfers Paradise was marvellous. I highly recommend everyone who visits Gold Coast should try the 5 minutes Scenic Helicopter flight as it is such an experience which is unforgettable and unique and it will leave a lovely memory in your heart forever. I highly recommend Experience Oz as well for giving the best price and service. Thanks to Experience Oz for making our trip cost-effective and charming.

We took the scenic flight over at Sea World and had a flight around the area
Ya Yan Tiong 4 years ago

We took the scenic flight over at Sea World and had a flight around the area. Although it was only a 5 minute flight, I would say it is totally worth the value! The scenery was fabulous and the pilot was quite experienced. I find it too expensive at first for a 5 minute flight, but I totally did not regret paying the amount.

It was a very memorable experience for me and my family
Rya 5 years ago

It was a very memorable experience for me and my family. Its something you can cherish and talk about it till you get old. The workers were very nice and accommodating especially with our 2 year old. They have given her some earphones to protect her ears. They have provided lockers for our things which I think is great as you wouldn't be worried about your bags or get caught while trying to get on and off the helicopter. Probably the downside of it is that this is a famous Gold Coast tourist activity so when we got there, there were a lot of people getting ushered around. Tour guides shouting to get them organized as some of them can't speak English. So it felt like a market place. Best to do it during off season or if it doesn't bother you.

Went on the flight in the middle of the day
Brittney (Staff) 5 years ago

Went on the flight in the middle of the day, the weather was beautiful which meant we had awesome views. Because of weight distribution, we were seated in the two front seats with the pilot (which was really cool) and he was very friendly. Riding in a helicopter was such a cool feeling and flying over the beautiful Gold Coast was just the icing on the cake. I would highly recommend this flight!

John 5 years ago

Gold Coast Scenic Helicopter Flight

Brittney Deguara

Experience Oz Travel Writer

The Gold Coast is a beautiful destination to explore and when Experience Oz was given the chance to see it via helicopter, we jumped at the chance.

Making our way to Sea World on the Gold Coast, we ventured over to Sea World Helicopters, which is nestled behind the popular aquatic theme park, for our 5-minute Scenic Joy Flight.

How To Get There

Car: The Sea World Helicopters office is located at Sea World, you can drive and park in the large parking lot free of charge


  • Exciting helicopter ride
  • Scenic views of Surfers Paradise
  • Informative commentary
  • Great views from all seats
  • Awesome photo opportunities

What You'll Do

Safety Briefings & Preparations

After signing in with the front counter we were taken inside the park to be checked in and briefed before our flight.

The safety briefing is available in multiple languages and takes only a few minutes to run through. As park goers moved around the grounds, we were seated outside near the helicopter pad waiting for our time to board.

Gold Coast Helicopter Flight Review

The anticipation was building as a small group huddled together waiting to be ushered towards the helicopter that had recently arrived.

When we checked in we were weighed as a collective group to ensure the total weight in the helicopter is correctly and safely distributed. As a result, upon our arrival at the door of the helicopter, we were seated in the two front seats.

Sitting next to the pilot and in front of all the controls was an experience within itself. As we clipped up our seat belts and fitted and tested our headphones and microphones, we were ready to ascend.

Gold Coast Helicopter Flight Review

Rising above the Gold Coast

Rising up above the theme park and heading towards South Stradbroke Island we were calmed by the soothing sound of the experienced pilot as he pointed out exactly what we were looking at.

Flying over some of the famed Gold Coast sights such as the Palazzo Versace and the iconic Surfers Paradise foreshore. The day was perfect for a helicopter and before we knew it the five-minute joy flight was over and we were descending back to the landing pad of the theme park.

The views from the flight were incredible! With hues of blues and gold from the beach contrasted against the concrete jungle that is the Surfers Paradise precinct, it was truly mesmerising to see this tired old region from a fresh new perspective.

Gold Coast Helicopter Flight Review

The five-minute joy flight we were scheduled on was the shortest available but still provided us with more than enough time to see all of the beauty the region possesses.

If you’re looking to enjoy a taste of the high life with a helicopter flight, I highly recommend this Sea World Joy Flight. Taking you up, up and away to see all of the best sights in a short amount of time (while still being a reasonable price) this 6-person journey is a definite must!
