“A curling good time”
Reviewed March 20, 2013 via mobile

This indoor curling ring at Naseby was great fun. It's one of those things you have to have go at if you're down that way. We paid about $30 each for an hour and a half which included a short video of how the game is played, followed by a quick demonstration with one of the guys that work there. Then it's on your own. Remember to take warm clothing even if it's hot outside as you will need them, especially after about 15 minutes - brurrrrr. After your game you can then chill out with a drink from the bar and watch other players on the ice having as much fun as you had.

“Go on - have a go”
Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

For some reason I was desperate to have a go at curling, so jumped at the chance when dong the Otago rail trail. Nasbey is a gorgeous little place and home to the indoor curling rink. The company we had used to organise our rail trail had set up car hire for us at Wedderburn and we drove from there - about 15 minutes. We had a 90 minute session, which started with a video explaining the game, then it was straight on the ice. We had the attention of a lovely guy who helped us get started and gave us some top tips. In fact the two guys there that afternoon were both great, enthusiastic, friendly and helpful, but also want people to have a good time. We then played for the rest of the time - I think getting a bit better. As there was just the two of us, we didn't make it into a competition at all, so we helped sweep each others stones. If you are a group you could set up scoring if you wanted. I would imagine a group of four would be the best so you all get a good turn each. It was such a fabulous time, can't thank them enough.

“so flexible and helpful”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

A heap of fun and the staff were so nice and helpful. We had to book and rebook and rebook when we failed to get all our family members organised at the same time. The staff were great and very understanding of our circumstances. Great experience on the ice too! :-)

“Pickled Mutton Bikers”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

This was a place that our group of 9 wasn't sure about visiting - however, as luck would have it the publican at Waipiata strongly suggested that we go and give it a try. We are so glad that we did - it gave us a break in our 5 day cycling and had a hoot while we were there - well worth the visit.
have a look around the small town of Naseby - great coffee shop after a cold hour on the ice!!

“Give it a go!”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

I enjoyed my curling experience a lot. The instruction was excellent! The only thing that holds this place back is the high price. It was $20 per person for an hour but of course their power bill must be huge and it is a not-for-profit organisation so I don't mind paying it once. Despite that, go for it! It's really fun.
