Visiting from cali, I decided to stop by rock n ropes for the morning. I must say, the swing was by far the scariest thing I've ever done, but I'm so glad I did it!! This place is so much fun and has such great people. If you are looking for a once in a life time experience, this is... More

If you're looking for something fun and different that is challenging, physically and mentally, I highly recommend Rock N Ropes! Martin and Phil are awesome guides, really helpful and patient (I have a slight fear of heights and took way longer than most people to complete the obstacles). They make sure you're having fun, push your limits and your safety... More

It was such a great experience.My instructor actually just came back for me and he was super nice. Whenever he realized that something was to easy for me, he challanged me to do something like jump on one leg. Especially the swing was awesome. Don't miss out titally worth the trip!

Had a fun (and safe!!) day at this place doing a high ropes course, testing our endurance and nerves- glad we stopped by. The guys were very encouraging and we felt safe at all times. Highly recommend.

This is by far one of my favorite experiences in New Zealand. My family and I came here last year and we loved it! The experience is both terrifying and fun at the same time. The weather was a bit windy that day, so it made the courses seem scarier. When going in the summer, make sure that you pack... More

This is an amazing place to (as my daughter says), conquer your fears. Some challenging obstacles but the instructors are always encouraging to push a little further. Martin is fantastic at this . A must if you are into something different

A quick decision for our 12 year old to have a go on the way back to Auckland. A beautiful Taupo day and whilst she was a bit unsure was keen to give it a go. She was amazing and conquered all of the climbs and swings she set out to do. The instructors were really good. By far the... More
