We didn't do true course, but just went for a look. Looks to be a really professional operation and very safe. I'm terrified of heights so won't be taking part but it was fun watching people doing the course, which wouldn't be for the faint hearted ! Appears that all safety equipment is supplied and qualified staff are there guiding... More

Great for all ages and adventure spirits. There are 7 levels, the first 2 available for young children (under 145cm height). Level 4 was my limit; I spent 2 hours doing levels 2, 3 and 4. Plan to go more than once if you want to achieve all of the levels. No food available. Street parking only. Good idea to... More

I was a bit apprehensive about taking my youngest daughter to this attraction. But my fears for her safety were very quick to disappear. The staff made sure that both of us really knew how to operate the equipment and what we were doing. Since my daughter was the minimum height required, we only were able to do the 1st... More

This high wire adventure facility is located in a small patch of very tall pine trees just north of Porirua. Seven routes (pathways), each with 10-20 individual challenges, criss-cross at different heights, from 3m for the early ones to 26m for the later ones. Climbers wear a safety harness which is connected to a failsafe safety system, with 2 carabiners.... More

Today I took my son out to the adrenalin forest at Porirua and I can honestly say that it was well worth the visit. We both tried out the high ropes set amongst the pine trees and were thrilled with our experience. It was challenging, exciting and scary in places! The staff were fantastic. They were very supportive and helpful.... More

We enjoyed our first visit to Adrenalin Park so much, we came back for a 2nd visit. About 15 min drive from Wellington CBD. Friendly, professional staff. System for attaching to the cables is very secure, so you feel quite safe. Only downside is the rustic toilet facility. Tip: BYO refreshments.

Safety briefing was good, and guides available to help, encourage and assist if required. Defnitely going to do it hte next time I'm... More

I took my 9 year old with some friends, for his birthday. They LOVED it and there were tables so we could have a snack and drinks between routes. It is a lovely setting if not all your party want to go up. I felt safety protocol was good - or I wouldn't have taken other people's children!

It was an amazingly challenging experience. I was worried before going on the pathways (they all look high somehow). I asked if I could be taken down when I'm half way on the path, and the answer was yes (by staff with ladder), but won't be able to get back to the pathway. The briefing and training was clear and...

We had the best day here - so much fun. I can't recommend it highly enough. The brief training session was clear and well done. The staff were all friendly, helpful and definitely knew what they were doing. The level of safety was extremely high. There are several different levels of difficulty, so anyone can give it a go. We... More
