Owner description: A full fun-filled day for the whole family! Unique action games seen nowhere else in the world featuring Flying Trapeze, Circus High Wire, Climbing Wall - all without a safety harness! This is possible because of our patented air bag technology. There is also a 12m high inflatable slide, a 30m water slide, Mini Golf, picnic/BBQ area and much, much more! Fun and satisfaction guaranteed so come on down!

We took a group of kids from school (Years 7 to 13) to Action World for the day as their treat for completing a challenge through 2013. They, and the 2 teachers and accompanying adults, had a blast. Carol, Freddy and ? (lovely Maori lad) were brilliant - friendly, patient, knowledgeable and helpful. Everyone had a ball. The only downside was all the red and scratched/cut backs from going down the waterslide, but that didn't stop most of them from doing it. Even if you don't participate, it is entertaining watching everyone else on the activities. Well worth visiting.

My husband, friend and 2 girls aged 8 and 12 headed to Paihia on Sunday for a birthday treat for our 8 year old. We were not really sure what to expect only that it looked like fun on the website. We were really wrapped. The staff were great, informative, very friendly and encouraging. Not one for heights I bravely climbed to the top of the extreme slide, placed my feet into the mat and screamed my way down the slide. It was exhilarating, I got off the end shaking yet very pleased with myself. We attempted most things except my 12 year old was the only one to brave the trapreze. There were some great bouts on the jousting pole oto. We had a picnic right in the middle so we couldewatch the girls. It is very well maintained and safety is paramount and adhered to. Great fun and value for money. The water slide was a welcome cool down at the end of our day. We are definitely considering taking our staff for a team bonding experience. Thanks Freddy and Carol.
