Our new Yamaha 4WD buggies seat up to 5 people and are a great family option for your NZ off-road activity day at Adventure Playground. Enjoy a spectacular tour with our experienced guides and learn some of the history of our Spirit Mountain, Mount Ngongotahā. Our guides are passionate about the environment, Rotorua and Māori history, culture and legends associated with the mountain.
