If you've never ridden before it's fine, they're super helpful and get you riding in no time! If you've got experience then you can have an absolute blast as well, and... More

We had an awesome time here, even with the rainy weather. My girlfriend who is a novice had plenty of fun in the challenging conditions! I would definitely come back and give it another go in some better weather!

Very friendly casual offroad motorbike experience. A half day will be enough for most people. If you haven't been on a motorbike before you might find the wet sections a bit wild, the bike slides everywhere in the mud and you need to be comfortable with that! If you have been on a moto before you might find that you... More

I've got experience on dirt bikes from my younger days, regularly mountain bike and hold a basic bike licence. I found this experience fun but more challenging than I expected. I unfortunately sprained my ankle on a steep downhill, mostly my fault I'll admit but even so I wouldn't pitch this as no experience necessary. The terrain till ride over... More

I was lucky enough to go out one on one with Merv the owner and had a fantastic time. I have only done a small amount of off roading but as a biker was reasonably confident. They have a great familiarisation track for you to ride round to get used to the bike and you start to feel comfortable quite... More

My husband and I booked a full day at short notice. As novices we were given plenty of time and instruction to practice on the track before heading out for the day. We covered every terrain imaginable and gained so many skills that day. It was informal, relaxed and I fear has inspired a lifelong passion (Bought a Suzuki RM125... More

You cannot go passed this place if you are looking for something new and exciting for your day! The views from the top are beautiful! Merv and his team really make the experience special by stopping to take photos and giving useful tips on the bikes. This would have to be my favourite thing to do in rotorua!

Many Thanks Merv for the 4 x 4 trip 'up the hills' to the 'Magic Forest'. At over 70 years old, I reckon I'm too 'fragile' for the bike now, but Merv designed and took us on his 4 x 4 to the 'Magic Forest' with a nice climb or two on the way. What a view!! What an experience!!... More
