“Lots of fun”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

My husband and I enjoyed a day of quad biking and river rafting through Thrillseekers. It was loads of fun! Staff (think it was Shane, James and Graham) were knowledgeable and friendly, making both trips worthwhile. They were patient with my lack of motor skills (I'm a bit of a clutz), helping me feel comfortable and have fun at the same time. Paid $35 for photos of both trips, which is worth it as you can't really take photos during the activities. We look back at these photos with joy. Thanks guys!

“Amazing experience!!”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

A few of my friends and I made the spontaneous decision to go jet boating and bungy jumping to start off the new year. It was the best day and an experience I would recommend to anyone! The staff were all very friendly and professional and made us feel safe and supported throughout the entire experience. Thrillseekers is definitely the first place you should stop if visiting Hanmer and an adventure you will never forget. I would also advise purchasing the dvd after the activities the photos are a great way to remember the memories!

“Quad biking experience was Awesome!”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

As a family of 5 'non' bikers we had an Absolute blast! With absolutely no experience we were a tad nervous but our guide Was fantastic, settled our nerves and helped us gain a lot more confidence on the trial loops! We walked away wishing we had booked more than one night in Hanmer so we could have revisited Thrill seekers for the other activities! Highly recommend!

We went Jetboating and Bugy Jumping and it was so much fun! We were terrified of the jump, but the staff were really friendly and we felt really safe the whole time! Would highly recommend Thrill seekers to anyone who asked, its a must if visiting Hanmer!!
