My 11 year old daughter was desperate to go here, and luckily there was a break in the weather in the first week of the July school holidays (when they are temporarily open - normally closed in winter) that allowed this. My 8 year old son also came along. They did not do mini golf, although that looked like fun.... More

We had an awesome time at Action World where the world famous trapeze artists, Carol and Freddie Osler run an action packed fun park. Not an ipad, iPhone or computer game in sight, just good family fun! Fantastic! Best part? trying to walk the tight rope, sliding down the water slide, flying the high trapeze, jousting with my husband...... If... More

We took a group of kids from school (Years 7 to 13) to Action World for the day as their treat for completing a challenge through 2013. They, and the 2 teachers and accompanying adults, had a blast. Carol, Freddy and ? (lovely Maori lad) were brilliant - friendly, patient, knowledgeable and helpful. Everyone had a ball. The only downside... More

My husband, friend and 2 girls aged 8 and 12 headed to Paihia on Sunday for a birthday treat for our 8 year old. We were not really sure what to expect only that it looked like fun on the website. We were really wrapped. The staff were great, informative, very friendly and encouraging. Not one for heights I bravely... More

We are fortunate enough to be able to visit Action World reasonably regularly - we always take visiting friends there and have never heard anything but positive comments from them. My family loves visiting and challenging themselves (ok .... me too!) and Carol, Freddie and the team are always on hand to help and encourage (and just to make you... More

For two boys aged 8 and 10 this place is paradise. We arrived at 10.30 (opens at 10) and had to drag them away at 5.15. Took a picnic for lunch and despite ripping open three blisters on one palm attempting the high trapeze (end of my trapezing for the day, next time I'll ask to borrow the gloves the... More

Sorry! The slide has a natural earth bed with a carpet overlay and then the PVC of the slide on top. Sometimes the earth underneath get 'speed bumps' like you do on non-paved road and we were not aware that a couple of bad ones had developed. It can happen in a matter of hours with heavy traffic. I'ts all... More
