Great snow tubing

Snow tubing was enjoyed by boys big and small. Course was a little short. Not many people so had run of it- no waiting. Magic carpet slowest bit. Staff were great and revved boys... read more

This is just 3 pools of different temperatures. You never see the view that they show on pictures and they haven't even tried to make it look pretty, they look like small swimming pools. I can't believe that they have the cheek to charge the same price as the Hanmer Springs thermal pool. All I can say is that if... More

What a terrific unwind after the drive through the Crown Ranges from Queenstown. Nice views of the lake and mountains from the pools, just be wary of the $ add-ons above the entry fee.

Snow tubing was enjoyed by boys big and small. Course was a little short. Not many people so had run of it- no waiting. Magic carpet slowest bit. Staff were great and revved boys up. Well worth the money.

We nearly missed going to Tekapo Springs as it was getting late in the day. I am so pleased we went there. The skating rink looked so inviting and fun with plenty of room as it is an Olympic size rink. Cafe seating and an rink-side open fire for non skaters to enjoy. No skating for us today straight to...

A great place to relax after a day exploring. We went late in the day so we could see the sunset reflected on the mountains. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Facilities were good as well.

Enjoyed an afternoon of relaxation here on our honeymoon. The hot pools were clean and the water was lovely and warm. It was busy with families when we went but the adults only pool (the hottest of the 3) was quieter and relaxing. We booked massages and a pedicure in the day spa which were incredibly relaxing and had amazing... More

Came here for an afternoon but found that everything is extra. It's $3 for a tiny locker that doesn't even fit a normal sized rucksack in (everyone has at least car keys or a wallet to lock up, surely?). Tried to go in the sauna but that was $6 extra. So theoretically paid $22 for a hot bath. Feel ripped... More

Thank you for your review of Tekapo Springs. It is always a nice way to split a day or 2 days between hot pools and ice skating. The ice rink has been a hive of activity it won’t be long until the snow park is in operation and we are hanging out for some snow. We look forward to seeing... More
