My friend and I are from the States and are here in NZ for golf. But we decided to have a little fun as well. I have been wanting to Bungee in NZ. I wanted to go to Queenstown but because of time issues we couldn't so I looked up what was close to Christchurch and Hamner Springs was. My friend was a little unsure if she wanted to do it. When were got there everyone made us feel very welcome and reassured that everything was going to be ok. The guys that secured our harnesses on the bridge were great. Positive and encouraging. My friend and I both jumped and it was one the best things we have done in our lives! I recommend going to Hamner Springs and doing this. You also get a certificate and a shirt for jumping.m

Had a great time with three of my children at Thrillseekers. Jet boat ride with fun and thrilling. Quad biking done very professionally and we all enjoyed it. I'd go back and do more another day.

We went out with Shane for a few hours, absolutely brilliant. Good safety instructions even for us slightly more experiened and used to quads. Great tracks, great bikes, great time. Good fun had by all, Shane is an excellent guide and we were able to go further than most due to his expert guidance, knowledge and track selection. Will be back in winter to try it out in the snow. Shane thanks for a awesome experience. A really cool thing to do! Cheers Rik/Nico.

Bungy was good, but we all would of went if there was a little discount, so they only recieved the one booking.

After doing several Jetboating trips in NZ i found that while Thrillseekers didn't get me as close to rock walls as some of the others the short info stops along the way were very educational in learning about the river, rock and local geology. These stops also gave time to take some fantastic scenic photos. would recommend for all ages.
