It's full of inflatable equipment for kids and adults. There's a separate area for smaller kids. It's eftpos only, no credit cards. No coffee available, only eftpos facility at the front gate so if you want icecreams etc then you have to go back there...More

This review is only for the mini golf as we did not try any of the inflatable activities which looked to be okay. The mini golf was definitely unique. People need to be aware before they pay that the course is not only ridiculously difficult,...More

I'm really sorry you had a bad experience. In keeping with the fact that we are an action/adventure park, it is clearly advertised that the mini golf is the 'most challenging in New Zealand.' Therefore there are few borders on the holes so that golfers...More

This activity kept our 14-18 yr venture scouts entertained for 2-3 hours. They had fun trying all the physical challenges. One small critique was that the bar grips were either too slippy due to sunscreen or else too abrasive which caused blisters on some of...More

We really enjoyed our recent visit - staff were friendly, weather was perfect, and the mini golf was a good challenge - up a hill and quite different to the many other courses we have played around the country.

There is a weight limit of 100kg on the high trapeze but that does not apply if you are fit and strong. No problem at all for adults doing this - it is as challenging for adults as it is for kids :)

Hi - we are now open for the whole of summer but - especially during weekdays - it is always better to call first to make sure that weather or other conditions do not prevent us from opening.
