“Ripoff”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

We paid $12 to go in here. There was nothing whatsoever to see. Just a few spots where steam rose from the ground. Grossly overated.

“Thermal moonscape.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

This was our Second visit after a 15 year break , and we still enjoyed it.It took about an hour of mostly board walking. This attraction is well maintained and there are detailed signage and information boards throughout the park.The entry fee is modest and there are refreshments and clean toilets available . Good parking .

“Good if you haven't seen other more spectacular thermals”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

Its a good introduction into the thermal activity in NZ. It is a cheap walk ($NZ6) and run by volunteers so it is well worth it for that reason. It's a very good way to spend an hour or so walking around the craters.

“weird stuff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

This was a great walk, around 50/60 mins. It was very dry when we went so there were no geysers but we did see loads of steam and some bubbling mud. Quite fascinating and really quite like what you can imagine another planet to be like, very enjoyable, altho' extremely hot walk.
