Hell's Gate has the mud bath, do remeber you must have a cold shower after this!.

The other pools of varying heats are attractive in looks and not muddy. Their massage is to die for.

Make sure you allow a morning for the gondola/luge, especially with kids. It is great value compared to most things in Rotorua, and lots of fun.

The Geothermal Parks are interesting - we went to Hell's Gate (for the Mud Baths) and Wai-O-Tapu (for the Geyser and the Champagne Pool). Probably one is enough depending on how much time you have in the area.

The Polynesian Spas are supposed to be very good, as are the shows in the AgroDome, although we didn't go to either.

have fun!!

Hells Gate has the mud bath, then cold shower then you can soak in 2 different pools ( not muddy) very relaxing and of course safely lined.
