We had a great time on the Quad bikes despite limited experience. It was good to experience different terrains and slopes. My stepson also enjoyed his first Bungy jump.

Bungy jumped off the bridge.. About a 35m drop.. It was a blast. Just fyi you must wear a harness as opposed to ankle straps. Apparently a girl came loose from the ankle straps back in 2010... Told me that right before I jumped. Didn't stop me. I was kinda bummed I could do the ankle straps, but the harness... More

Bought and paid for the bungy. They didn't tell us till after we paid that you can't bungy with the rope around your ankles like traditional bungys. Had to use the full body harness. Third time bungy, and felt a little let down in all honesty... The adrenaline pump is good as always.

I did the bungy with these guys a couple days ago. Totally worth every penny spent. The staff were really lovely and helpful, made me feel confident enough to jump without assistance. They have everything to organised. Would definately reccomend this to everyone who hasnt done a jump before. They made the entire experience unforgettable for me

Hands down the best fun I had on my South Island tour! An hour of speed, water, mud, trills, views, dirt and bumps! Tour guide Tim from Florida was awesome fun! A definite must if staying in Hanmer Springs (much better location than other places in the South Island to go on Quad bikes and cheaper)! Thanks heaps Thrill Seekers... More

Came here on the way from Wellington to Christchurch - so was very tired, but wanted to cram in a bungy jump to break up the driving!! (My friend said I was crazy) Arrived at 3:45pm without having booked anything and just before they were due to close, but they were more than happy to oblige and set me up... More

Had great, but a bit chilly, fun on the speed boat. It was well run and they had good communication. We were lucky enough to purchase a discounted voucher on the book me website and were glad we did so, and as no disrespect to the company, probably wouldn't have gone at full price. In saying that we had a... More

Daryl, our guide on the jetboat ride had a great sense of humour, was good with the kids and gave us a short but thorough and entertaining safety briefing, and an adrenaline-charged ride down (then up) the Waiau River. This was very good value for money at half an hour on the water. The souvenir shop was reasonably priced also.... More
