Not for beginners. And we were just that. I guess we were done by the “Anyone is able to ride- No experience necessary as full training and tuition is given before trip commences” bit on their webpage. The “full training and tuition” was just a cursory 5mins briefing by guy in the charge sitting in a quad telling us about the controls as we all stood around him. After that you get on your quads and start riding the tracks. No time to drive around on a flat, even surface and get used to the controls. The first kilometer or so is supposed to be a test run on the “easy” track. I wouldn’t call it easy. Especially if you are in your first minute of your first ever quad ride. It’s gravel, it’s not even, it’s not flat, uphill, downhill with bends. Then came the main track. I think even some of the experienced guys would have struggled with that. Me, I completed it. In my “let’s not die today” speeds. We did it on a clear, dry day. I can’t imagine the carnage had it been on a rainy day.

Be aware of the very narrow track that goes up and down A LOT. Lots of bumps in the road, not flat AT ALL. Looks more like a track for advanced riders not beginners. Even though I’ve been quad biking before this was far too dangerous! After nearly 1km into the track I accidentally turned to the edge a bit and the bike fell onto my leg. The guide didn’t even asked if I was ok only complaint about how I explained the situation (English is my second language and I would explain it like this in my language) and how it all was my fault. It was my fault I know but this all happened because of the BAD track conditions. I felt very upset about the way he handled the accident no respect, racist and only blaming me. Next time check upon the person first if she/he’s ok you can’t always ‘see’ if someone is hurt. $250 wasted. Never again.

Had a fantastic morning doing the 1hr quad bike. Neither myself or my two teen boys have ever quad biked or motorbiked before..we were all kitted out in wet weather gear (thankyou very much - so needed as the rain was a touch damp 😉). We were shown how to drive the quads well. The track was great lots of hills and bumps and enough corners to make it fun...plus great bush are..challenging enough to be fun, but equally great for complete newbies like ourselves, the rain and mud added to the fun, and when one of the boys overtook a corner a wee bit was helped to get back on thack and going again. Thanks for such a great day.👍🏼👍🏼

My family visited this place for a quad bike adventure. My daughter struggled to control her bike, 10 minutes into her ride the bike rolled shattering her ankle in three places. They operator had no basics health and safety at all, not even a thermal blanke or Panadol, we had to call an ambulance and get her to hospital. His response was to tell us he was sending us a $1500 bill for the work safe review he would need to do. We got her to Taupo hospital where they exrayed her and found three breaks requiring surgery. We had to drive her back home to Hawke’s Bay in agony where she spent the next two weeks in hospital as her swelling was so bad they could not operate. I left a review via google saying as much and we were all happy to leave it there and move on with our lives. But this scum has responded to that feedback calling me a liar stating that my daughter was uninjured. We are now following up with work safe, the commerce commission and legal action. We didn’t want anything, not even an apology, but to take zero responsibility and then call us liars... this guy needs to be shut down before someone is killed
