Navigate your virtual balloon this December, with Brainwave’s first-ever Virtual Balloon Race!

Purchase your balloons for just £5 each, customise them and then track their progress from the launch on 11 December at 1pm, from Santa's Village in Lapland.

You'll have the chance to win some incredible prizes including a seven-night family holiday with Eurocamp!

The race is computer-simulated where everything is real except the balloon. The software uses current live weather data to determine the progress of each balloon and each entry can be tracked once launched. As this is a virtual balloon race, it has no negative environmental impact on wildlife, climate change, plastic waste or litter!

The Brainwave virtual balloon race launches Friday 11 December 2020 at 1pm from Santa's Village in Lapland. The race will finish at 1pm on Friday 18 December 2020.
