Rotorua is an adventure playground!
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 all 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 with Rotorua Canopy Tours; the Luge and Skyswing at Skyline Rotorua; ZORB giant inflatable balls; Indiana Jones style jungle bridges at Redwoods Altitude; self-drive 4WD Bush Safari, Monster 4x4 Thrill Ride and Raceline Karting 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 or hop aboard Riverjet’s jet boat to visit a geothermal and geological gem called The Squeeze.
For the mild adventurer to the most hard-core action seeker, Rotorua will not disappoint. In fact, you wouldn't be judged for wanting to stay longer and do more!
