Admittedly we come mostly for the cable park. It is well maintained, has a couple of nice features (unit: funbox, rooftop, 2x flatbars, kicker; as well as two homemade items). The motor tower is high and has a a good pull. The fact that there are sheer cliffs at towers 1-3 means it is not only really cool, but there... More

There are no aids to assist one to get out of the water. I tripped over metal sticking out of ground. Bad injury. Child stepped into glass near 3m rock jump. deep cut.

The entry fee does not cover even the most basic amenities e.g. shade or access to drinking water. A family day out can easily run into thousands of rands; clearly not geared to locals. We arrived. Paid. Drove down. THEN we were informed about all the extra charges. An hour wasted but at least we got our money back. Will... More

We had my son's birthday party at Blue Rock. The venue is neat and tidy. Activities include water skiing; zip lining and swimming. Blue Rock is in a old quarry. Kids can have fun in a safe environment.

Visiting Blue Rock was a thrilling adventure. The water ski is absolutely awesome as is the zip line. The staff warned us many had left their undies in the water due to the sheer force if you fall in and I nearly suffered the same fate! Great place, yummy gelato.

Blue Rock is a place where fun friends and excitement all meet together. Great atmosphere and the water-sport facilities will definitely not disappoint. I can't wait for summer to visit Blue Rock again. Even though it's quite pricey to spend the day it is well worth it.

Blue Rock is a "must do". It is an old quarry filled with water where they run a cable ski resort. There is also mini paintball, foofie slide, rock jumping and a small swim section. Nice big lawns and a amphitheatre of steps for spectators to watch. A nice restaurant serves anything from coffee and cake to hearty meals. Great... More
