Headed out to rock n ropes with a friend for a fun afternoon, and we were not disappointed. Marty (our instructor) was fantastic at his job, making sure we felt as safe as could be yet still taking time to have some fun and mess with us a little. Would recommend for anyone (even if your scared of heights like... More

An awful experience. Phillip was a nasty, condescending man who gave a great establishment a horrible name. I will be advising everyone I know never to visit. I left feeling awful as his actions were inexcusable and displayed the worst customer service I have ever encountered. Your establishment is meant to boost spirits. I spent my time there trying not... More

We're in Taupo to celebrate our mum's 70th so 3 generations met in Taupo from Auckland, Te Awamutu, Havelock North & Wellington. With 'children' ranging from 17-24 we wanted something exciting to do. This is a nerve raking experience but everyone pushed themselves far more than we thought we could & were amazed at what we accomplished! Phil & Martin... More

My 7 year old did this with the help of Martin who was excellent at his job explaining what to do and encouraging him through everything on the course. Then the 7 year old daughter decided it looked easy so gave it a go and got half way up and decided she wanted to come down but Phil the owner... More

This was such a great experience and the staff are absolutely fantastic at what they do! It was definitely well worth the tiny amount that was charged.

A 7 & 10 year old were so happy to be encouraged by lovely Martin. He was fun and very clear in his directions up to the kids when they were way,way up high. He talked to them and gave them some lovely comments. These kids were on a high (pun) when they got home. Fancy being able to safely... More

I've been to this place 3 weeks ago during the Xmas vacation (found about that on Bookme). Anyway my girlfriend came with me to watch me doing some extreme stuff, and it was really nice she could be part of it (taking photos and encouraging me). It was really hard for me (as I have acrophobia to a certain degree)... More
