“Lots of Kiwis”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

We ran out of time at this park so we just had a quick visit with the Kiwis. There was a night time Kiwi encounter but we were too tired to go back for this. Lots of information on Kiwis. It's right next door to the Sky Mountain gondola.

“Bloody fantastic”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

I took my son for his birthday. At that time, there was a new installed ride, the big splash. We went on it and went on it, we had a ball. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would recommend it if your travelling to Rotorua. I think it is a great Rotorua experience and right next door to Gondolas.

“Great family day out - You've got to go see the kiwi's !!”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

Had a really nice few hours here after visiting the luge. It was not very busy and had a good chat with some of the staff who were very friendly and knowledgeable. The water splash ride was good fun too and our kids just stayed on it for 4 laps as there was no queue. Strongly recommend going back after dark to see the kiwi's. They are great to see up close and people everyone there was mesmerised by them. The park was very nicely lit up at night too.

“What a great experience!”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

We went there during the day and decided to do the night tour as well and soooo glad we did. What an amazing experience seeing the Kiwis. My sister and her family have visited many Kiwi parks in NZ and they say this one was by far the best. You are so close to kiwis you can almost touch them (but please don't! and don't use flash cameras as well as you will damage their eye sight)
