Rotorua is an adventure playground
Experience kiwi ingenuity at its best with our abundance of attractions
We’re lucky to have some of the country’s most innovative and clever people living right here in Rotorua who have nothing better to do than invent and create amazing attractions and activities for our visitors to enjoy.
The list is long, so pull up a chair: the pedal-powered monorail Shweeb Racer, Freefall Xtreme, Agrojet and more at Velocity Valley; ziplines and swing bridges through ancient forest by Rotorua Canopy Tours (who happens to be New Zealand's Supreme Tourism Award winner for 2016); the Luge and Sky Swing at Skyline Rotorua; ZORB giant inflatable balls; Indiana Jones style jungle bridges at Redwoods Altitude; 4WD Bush Safari, Monster 4x4, raceline karting and more at Off Road NZ. Drive your own 4x4 cart up Mount Ngongotahā and shoot some claybirds at Adventure Playground.
Try whitewater sledging or rafting the world-famous Kaituna River which is home to the world’s highest commercially raftable waterfall.
Fly across Lake Rotorua in a jet boat, paraglide to soaring heights above the lake, or hop aboard Riverjet’s jet boat to visit a geothermal and geological gem called The Squeeze.
From the mild adventurer to the most hard-core action seeker, Rotorua will not disappoint. In fact, you will want to stay longer and do more!
3D Trick Art Gallery is the first and only 3D Trick Art Gallery in New Zealand!
Sailing on Lake Rotoiti the most stunning and undiscovered lake in Rotorua. Enjoy sailing, hot pools, fine cuisine in pure comfort.
The typical kids' playground has more than one activity. The same can be said for our amazing Adventure Playground for ‘grown ups’ (we use the term loosely). Our Self Drive Double Pass means you get to experience a 1 hour 4×4 Self Drive off road tour and a 25 shell GET STARTED Clay Bird Shooting package. Grab yourself a Self Drive Double Pass Combo!
Get the most out of the Adventure Playground with a great combo deal. This is one of our most popular combos as it lets you experience our venue in two contrasting styles. The excitement of a Clay Bird shoot, followed by a sedate, scenic horseback experience. By combining a 1 hour Rotorua Horse Trek with a Get Started Rotorua Clay Bird Shooting package, not only do you double your fun, but you also make a great saving!
Your place for fun, no matter the weather!
Come with us and ride through some of New Zealand's best ancient native forest on meandering mountain bike trails. This full day trip includes guide and transport, food, and bike hire. We can take it nice and easy close to the road, or we can go all out and fly deep into the heart of the Whirinaki!
Superman dive into a giant inflatable ball and roll down Mt Ngongotaha ZORB, where the fun will have you laughing uncontrollably. Owned and operated by the Kiwi inventors of ZORB, discover FOUR different ball rolling tracks – the world’s longest zig-zag Sidewinder Track, the smooth ‘n’ fast double Straight Track, MEGA Track – the longest, fastest and steepest track in all the land, and the newest track; Big Air, the latest thrill ride.
