    It's just where the West End meets PI. We've not done it yet, but will when the boy is with us. It's "grounded" a lot because of high winds and poor weather. Summer is not the best time, eh?

    You can't miss it, even if it's tethered in. It's a HUGE yellow balloon. :yes:

    yep, even in relatively good weather, there's a fair amount of sway on the way up. It's $16 a head I think and gives a pretty good view

    Yes, that's about the price. I thought it was fairly reasonable. Less for children (but not a whole bunch less).

    Did you go up, Keith? What can you see? It's going to be tricky picking a clear day. In the summer the haze obscures the view, I'm sure...
