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

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.

Went with a mate while she took her first plunge on the bungee off the bridge! It was amazing! Great location, gorgeous river, and it was all very well managed. She was nervous as, but the operator, James, was a cracker! Had us both laughing and assured we were in safe hands! Hit up Hanmer Thrillseekers for good times!

We had a great morning rafting with Gavin from Thrillseekers. A great guide who was a long time local, knowledgable about the region and an all round good bloke. The jet boat ride back from the end of the rafting to the base was a real treat too. Well worth it!
