We called in here on a drive back from Kerikeri, as the prices seemed reasonable and it looked like fun for our big kids - 13 and 19 yo. Such a fun afternoon and the staff were really helpful and friendly. Would definitely recommend this - take a picnic and plenty of drinks if the afternoon is a hot one,... More

The mini golf course is hands-down the best I have ever played. Challenging and with cool obstacles, it's brutally tough as it uses steep slopes and doesn't have side banks. Highly recommend! The action world part is terrible though. If you are easily amused or like to climb on things then you may like it. I left rueing the loss... More

Action World does manage to deliver as what they stated they would. The activities available for you to try out is all placed in the open so you can simply take a look to find out if it is the type of thing you wish to do or not. This is great for confidence building (especially with the height factor... More

Kids loved it in parts.... The parts where they didn't get a bit hurt. Good fun for older early teen kids or kids with a more adventurous spirit. Would be hard to squeeze out a day here... However it did provide us with something different to do for a few hours. Beware the water slide.... We have 3 kids and... More

I really do apologise for this. Our waterslide is a 'natural' feature: PVC laid on carpet which is laid over a bed of fine gravel. On this particular day some kids took the hose that feeds the water down the slide and threw it over the back of the ramp which sent the water UNDERNEATH the system creating a stream... More

What a great variety of equipment and activities to try. An excellent day of physical activity for the children, with something for all ages to do. And, the longer we spent at it - the better we got - excellent for confidence building and perseverance/resilience training - plan to spend hours (take food/drinks) not a fleeting visit.

We went here after finding the local town a bit sedate. We loved all the activities which were both exciting and challenging. My boyfriend got a lesson in trapeze whilst I tried something a bit easier. Spent a more chilled afternoon playing mini golf on the well designed course. Lovely couple who run this place who were very helpful giving... More

Of course when you travel with children you can not miss out on this fun park, lots of laughs. Exhausted after but great time!

Felt a bit silly walking in as a adult going to play on the stuff that children were doing (they were better than me, too!) but it really was a hilarious day out. The staff were helpful, obviously loved working there and assured me that plenty of adults, themselves included, all use the equipment. I recommend going in summer and... More

What a great place for the kids, I took a 9 and a 5 year old, and they both had such a great day. There were some really tough daring things for my 9 year old to do, and my youngest was quite happy with the smaller trapeze and the trampolines. We were there in quite bad weather but it... More

What a blast. Felt a bit out of place as a 46 year father lining up with the kids to do the trapeze, but would not have missed the opportunity to try it out.
