The staff are very professional and triple checked everything in preparation for 3 bungy jumps we did on August 15. The only mix-up was that we booked an 11AM jump, but when we arrived they informed us that we'd need to wait until 12:30PM because they didn't have the required minimum staff at 11AM to do the jumps then. They... More

My husband & I went to try out this activity while we stayed at Hanmer Springs. For the reasonable amount of money we paid for this fun activity @$115 for nearly an hour along beautiful scenery of Waiau river and snowy mountain in distance; it was something more of fun rather than thrill seeking activity I thought I'd experienced. Very... More

The guide for our two hour experience was very good. There was a real focus on safety and the sessions started with good instruction and a practice track. We started slowly until we all built confidence. It was a really exciting trip and we all had a lot of fun. Overalls, boots and glasses were supplied, but old clothes are... More

Three of us planned to hit the trails on the Quad bikes and we were the only three to start with, which was cool as we could probably go faster. When we returned there were 12 of us including children on the back of large Quad's with parents. It started out a little slow so Marc who did a great... More

Had a 15 year old boy who did the bungee and it was a pretty slick operation and I liked that they were really flexible on how you wanted to jump. They coaxed a 12 year old girl to do it and it was an all round great experience. Did think it was a shame the photos aren't included in... More

Booked to take my two girls 10 & 8 along jet-boating. We phoned the day of the booking to see if it was still on as snow was starting to fall. They said nothing will stop them not even the snow! We arrived and the whole crew were superb. They made my nervous girls feel very relaxed and even though... More

Thank you for the awesome review. We are thrilled you found the trip exhilarating yet educational. Guess that's a bonus with a 8 and 10 year old, school and fun at the same time. Hope to see you again for another thrilling adventure. More

Really enjoyed the trip which I took with my 11 year old daughter. Certainly made the hot pools seemed even nicer at the end. Friendly laid back staff and nice jet boat ride back to base. Thank you thrill seekers.
