Thank you very much Georges ! Georges is a so good driver, we go everywhere with him, with the eyes closed! (It is not a joke!!) It was a real pleasure to drive the 4WD, with the pertinent and perfect advice of Georges, talking us through everything, and making sure we felt confident and secure in what we were doing.... More

What a fun few hours I enjoyed here! First up, karting, a superb track, fast and controllable vehicles, super safe but adrenaline fueled! Track-times printed and received after the race. Fittings available for go pro camera on helmet. Next up, I had a quality time on the monster truck ride. Taking on near-on impossible angles, up and down steep slopes,... More

This was such a brilliant couple of hours!! Would recommend it for anyone visiting Rotorua! Surprising and exhilarating- you think you've done the scariest/hardiest bit but then it gets harder! Staff were really friendly and helpful (giving us tips for where to eat/visit etc).

We had such an amazing trip, full of fun, excitement and scariness! If you take the self-drive tour, you really must have some proverbial, it is nuts what the Suzuki is capable of. The 8 wheeler trip is equally exciting and we felt our driver was totally competent.Why not round it off with some go karting on a competition standard... More

What a great time going through deep water over rough terrain up and over hills. The little Suzuki Jimny take a lot of hammer but can take anything you throw at them 😉. The staff are great and the two guides Nathan & Toni were excellent. We had three women and me the driver they screamed all the way round... More

We did the 4 x 4 monster truck ride. Everyone enjoyed it. Good safe fun and the driver did a real good job of engaging with the kids. Good fun.

Took 15yr old son on this with his grandfather about 20yrs ago and it was incredible. They let him drive on his UK provisional licence and it was one of the most exciting things we did on the entire holiday. Exhilarating and a tad scary in parts but great fun.
