Very very very poor - this is you paying to watch their poorly filmed advertising. Wanted a 6D experience - didn't get anything but an uncomfortable jiggle.

Paid to watch advertising! Hardly moved. Useless 3d glasses. Pathetic. We've done heaps better at Te Papa, Antartic Centre, Rainbows End. Don't waste your money.

Neither me or my friend had time money age-health-mobility or the weather to do actual skydive, heli trips, flights, whitewater rapid rafting trips, so this place with its simulator-machine film thing was a fun substitute. Staff friendly. Possibly a bit over pricy for what it...More

very disappointing. Camera angle constantly changing so you loose the sensation of being there' yourself. Overseas ones I have done leave you feeling like your;e actually there. Sound was just loud music so you couldn't hear the water etc when you were supposedly rafting ......More

As I said this 4D ride indoors is FANTASTIC. This is one of the indoor activities in Taupo that gets you away from the weather extremes. (Lava Glass, White Water World, Taupo Museum, Crafty TROUT Brewery Tours, and Starlight Cinema). A Taupo MUST DO
