Went here with my 3 kids whilst in Queenstown. 30 mins of laser tag and 3 x 10 min games of VR was $334. That is plain outrageous for the standard. Laser tag was fun, but it is a small environment with blow up pillows as separation. VR was good fun too but brief for the cost. Pricing should reflect multiple activities, value just doesn’t stack up for a family.

Hi Scott, Thank you for your feedback, your input is valuable to us. We are glad to hear you and your 3 kids enjoyed both, the tactical I-Combat Laser Tag with your own referee and the Hologate VR with your own game host during the whole session. We feel we are a very competitively priced attraction within Queenstown. Comparing with other entertainment operators in Australia/New Zealand an average cost per game per person of $14 considering the products we offer is very much on par. We pride ourselves on offering the top latest technology with state-of-the-art gear. Our I-Combat tactical Laser Tag you played is a World Market Leader and Hologate VR, which you experienced, has won many internationally recognized prices and is currently one of the leading multiplayer VR systems on the market. Maintaining such a high standard of equipment and personalized customer service for a unique fun time at Thrillzone is not cheap. The vast majority of our guests from all over the world value this service exactly. We are sorry you could not see this. Best Regards, The Thrillzone Team

Very average course. Expensive for just 9 holes and very poorly designed. The UV lighting and art work is certainly cool, but the holes are so poorly designed - easy to lose your ball off the side or stuck in poorly maintained obstacles and elements on the course, and no bounce off the edges either. You are able to play through more than once but we (two couples in our twenties) decided we didn’t even want to.

We consider ourselves mini golf fans who have collectively played at heaps of courses around the world and all agreed this was crap.

Staff seemed annoyed and uninterested in us and not fun at all.

Perhaps their VR experiences are better but I would give the mini golf a miss - many better things in Queenstown.

Kia Ora Jordan, Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback - we really appreciate it. Here at Thrillzone, our key mission is to make people happy and we are truly sorry that our Putt' n Glow Mini Golf did not meet your expectations. We would have loved to hear about your concerns on the day of your visit to offer you a more suitable activity, such as our state-of-the-art Virtual Reality experiences. We have a wide range of options to ensure everyone can find something they enjoy. Putt' n Glow is one of our most popular activities and most people enjoy it, as the interactive course with moveable obstacles gives people the chance to design their own course layout and play the 9 holes as often as they like to. We also offer spinners with extra challenges and a little augmented reality escape game at the end. However, we are constantly trying to improve our products and the reviews like yours are crucial. We will consult the raised issues with our management team. We apologize for the behavior of our staff member. Excellent customer service is our priority and we would like to investigate this further if you could share any details of the situation. We would also love the chance to make it up to you! Could you please contact us at hello@thrillzone.co.nz to discuss it? Kind Regards, Your Thrillzone Team

The mini putt was absolutely dreadful. So expensive, impossible to play, poorly maintained and just abysmal. $80 for a family of four for nine low quality holes is a total rip off. I would not recommend at all.

Hi MSeymour77, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We appreciate any feedback. A lot of creativity went into making our Glow in the dark Mini Golf. Apart from local artists creating amazing wall art and taking you on a journey of the Wakatipu Region, we implemented quite a few features differentiating our minigolf from traditional places. Have you considered playing those? We get a lot of great feedback from people using those as a twist to minigolf... - You can have as many rounds as you want, unlike the traditional single game - We have fun Ipad spinners, adding additional challenges and fun to the game. - You have the option to choose your music to make the ambience suitable to your mood - Options of moving Obstacles, so you decide difficulty level and can be catered from kids to an Adult - We have a mini Escape Room challenge, for all those puzzling enthusiasts - Special Glow in the Dark atmosphere makes it Indoor visually attractive. All these features are available at just $19pp. Thus we feel like we are one of the most affordable activities amongst Queenstown's amazing offers. Our key mission at Thrillzone is to make people happy, we are very sorry we could not deliver this to your family.

We did the the glowing mini golf, I thought it was very small and not fun at all. You could finish the course in about 10 minutes without even rushing. Everything at the trill zone is overprice and not reasonable for what you are doing. Overall I don’t recommend this to anyone and it’s a total waste of time

The Mini Golf was terrible, only 6 (I think) holes, very badly designed and made, boring as hell. And it cost $56 for 2 adults and a 4 year old! Meant to be an escape room at the end but we couldn’t wait to leave. Would def not recommend.

3 of us (mid 20s) had a free evening so decided to come here to play a bit of crazy golf before dinner.

It was a tiny room with 9 holes packed right together. There was no layout and the obstacles could be moved which we didn’t really get?

We finished the course within 15 minutes and it was a complete waste of $70

My 9 year old son was unsure of what to try as it was our first time visiting a VR gaming facility. Having visited the branch in Takapuna and being very impressed with the service, the patience of the staff, options offered and cleanliness (particularly after Covid) we decided to give the Queenstown branch a try too during our trip south in the school holidays. The staff were again, very friendly and helpful. We decided to try out the Escape Adventure where you take a trip around the local area to solve riddles find clues. It was a lot of fun and an unusual way to see Queenstown and we will definitely be trying out a different Escape Adventure with Thrill Zone. We helped a 3D goblin to collect crystals and open a portal. The tasks totally had the whole family excited and involved. Highly recommended for all ages! Having been to other similar places, this is by far the best. They are very generous with the time, unlike many others and you really get your money’s worth.

It was expensive for what would be a very budget course without all the super cool lighting. Enjoyed choosing our own music. Appreciated you could play as long as you want but it was sosososo hot in there we didn't play more than two games.

The scoring ap was silly & we just wanted pen & paper, the QR codes just took you to the businesses website, the escape room didn't seem to work so we gave up, the illusion room we didn't even know it was that until we asked as we left!

Very overpriced

I’ve lived in Queenstown for nearly a year now and have always wondered what Thrill Zone was like. So a friend and I decided to give the mini golf a go and it was so much fun! The employee who helped us out (I believe her name was Kammi) was brilliant and showed us around the course before hand and pointed out all the fun parts like choosing your own music (which is so cool) and how the escape room works. I’ll definitely be back to try the other parts of Thrill Zone and try some VR!

I love mini golf but this was a complete waste of time and money. $19 for 7 holes of golf. And supposedly an escape room which I was really looking forward to. The mini golf was ok but got very repetitive after about the 3rd hole. The escape room ipad wasn't working. When we pointed it out the staff member said 'oh yeh the escape room isn't working also are you nearly finished we close in 4 min?) asked if we could have at least a bit of a discount as we weren't told they were about to close and that we would have to leave and also couldn't do the escape room. No chance of a partial refund. Would not recommend this place to anyone.

Hi Eva, We are extremely sorry for the inconvenience caused during your Mini-Golf session. There was an unexpected technical issue with Ipad, which resulted in not working and mini Escape being unavailable. Our staff member realized it when he was upstairs with you. We apologize for his response to you and necessary disciplinary actions are taken against the staff. We would like to make your experience better, so if you wish to come in our store we can have you a free session of Mini Golf or any other paid activity you choose we would give you an extended session. Thank you for your feedback, Mehul & Thrillzone team
