We had the pleasure of visiting Adrenalin Forest in both the Christchurch and Tauranga locations while cruising New Zealand. I love outdoor sports and hiking – and I enjoyed doing this so much in Christchurch that I went and visited another location in Tauranga. They use an innovative safety system that allows the user to clip in to a system of safety lines throughout the various obstacle ropes courses.
Although it’s tough and not for the out of shape, I never felt unsafe – as the system is relatively dummy proof. The challenges include ropes, climbing, stairs, fast foxes (think zip-line), bridges, etc. They get progressively harder but most of it is mental (my opinion anyway). This is a great thing for kids and there were many adults (myself included) enjoying the different courses.
We ran out of time and I was only able to complete up to level 4 but I hope to one day return to the Adrenalin Forest and make it through to round six one day. I’m in my 40’s in decent shape and had no trouble with the course.
Tip – stay away from this place on a weekend – if it gets packed with children, it’s difficult to get past them if one of them gets scared and is unable to continue, etc. In Tauranga, we had a bus come in on a Saturday with 60 teenage boys and knew it was time to leave before they took over the place. Highly recommended if you are someone who likes a thrill and is in reasonably good physical condition.
