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!
