What to Expect
Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Velocity Valley, 1335 Paradise Valley Rd, Ngongotaha, Rotorua 3040 New Zealand

Choose just one of the following activities or select one of the great-value combination packages. The Shweeb Race against the clock as you pedal your way around the course, suspended in a pod hanging from a monorail line. With seven gears and the potential to reach speeds of up to 28 mph (45 kph) with 60-degree swings on the bends, it’s just like riding a bike – with a difference! You must be at least 3.6 feet (1.1 meters) tall to ride the Shweeb. Freefall Xtreme Defy gravity as you float above a giant column of air as your flight master guides you to heights of up to 13 feet (4 meters).You’ll literally be blown away by the experience! This truly is a hair-raising adventure; it feels like skydiving, but without a parachute. Minimum weight requirement is 55 pounds (25 kg). Rotorua Bungy Your pulse will quicken and you will soon forget about the scenery. Feel the tug of the bungy cord as you prepare to take the original leap of faith, from a platform 141 feet (43 meters) high.You need to be at least 10 years of age (legal age limit in NZ) and weigh more than 77 pounds (35 kg). Children 15 years and under must have parental or guardian consent. Swoop Feel like a superhero as you fly through the air, reaching speeds of up to 80 mph (130 kph) and pulling 3Gs. Your heart will thump loudly as you are lifted 131 feet (40 meters) into the air, suspended from a cable. With the tug of a rip cord, you plunge head-first towards the ground before swinging upwards. Minimum height requirement is 3 feet (1 meter). Agrojet Buckle up and hold on tight for heart-racing laps on a jet boat through a 0.62 mile (1 km) sprint course. Reaching speeds of up to 62 mph (100 kph), you’ll feel the wind rush past you and G-forces pulling as the boat twists and turns around the purpose-built obstacle course, finishing with the famous 360-degree Hamilton Jet Spin. Minimum height requirement 2.95 feet (0.9 meters) two passengers per jet boat. -------------------- ITINERARY -------------------- The Shweeb Race against the clock as you pedal your way around the course, suspended in a pod hanging from a monorail line.

Cool place. My teens tried almost all the activities here. Even my 7 years old tried a few. They enjoy the agro jet a lot. The swoop was fun. But I think they're favorite is the shweeb racer. It's a cool place to visit when you're in Rotorua, lots of activities in one place.

This was awesome, done the Free fall and Swoop ( the swing) tandem. Never done either and I want to go again and again. The guys there Jessie and Liam were our safety men on both and were brilliant. Totally recommend to everyone to have a go.
