Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Have been here many times by bike and car. This time we hiked from Waterfall Gully to Mt Lofty. Scenic views. Waterfalls are small in comparison to many others but the best in Adelaide. Ample parking available and multiple toilets.

    A big group of us camped in a fantastic secret spot which we had all to ourselves, for my daughters 10th birthday over the long weekend! It was EPIC! Even the lead up was excellent, we had FANTASTIC communication via the staff, which made our organising so easy and fun!! Definitely be going back and doing it all again Big thumbs up👍
    I have so many great photos, but here's a couple

    I wasn't going to review Black Hill as a hiking trail because I thought it would be good for it to stay a well kept secret - but heck that's mean! Currently training for a hike in Corsica and Sardinia and Black Hill is just perfect - there is a 6 hour/17kms round hike you can do with a couple of really mean hills thrown in. If you include Ghost Gully, Orchard Track and walk along Montacute road for about 1-1/2 kms you can join up with the mean mother Quarry track and head back down from the summit via Summit Nature trail back to where you started from. And it is lovely pristine bush when you stop for a breather!

    Exhilarating! You feel as if you are the pilot of a large commercial jetliner. The cockpit is a replica of a full size plane and the experience is similar to actually flying. We had a professional pilot sitting, explaining everything and supporting as the similated "pilot" experience unfolded.

    Good Value and a great experience. Highly recommend...

    We did the Alice room which I found engaging and fun.
    The real highlight was Elish who was the staff member to guide us through the experience.
    Elish was approachable and a thorough delight throughout the session. She set the scene of the room wonderfully.
    We have done quite a few Escape rooms across Australia and Elish stands out as the best attendant we have ever had.
    If you ever see this Elish, keep being awesome, thanks.

    Loved this experience. Perfect date for a couple or with a group of friends. My husband and I did the Gaol Break room - it was challenging but still lots of fun. The staff were so lovely and accomodating. Thank you so much to Austin, Milla and Sheridan for hosting us.

    A fantastic group activity. So much fun and suitable for a group of eight. Every one in the group were able to participate. Knowledge of the games was useful but not essential.

    Excellent trip, hosts were very knowledgeable and friendly. Saw a couple of dolphins, one a mother and baby . The trip into the mangrove swamps was really good as were the wrecks. Would definitely recommend.

    Made a great bike tour! Rented top of the range E-mountainbikes and got a route on our demand: over Mount Lofty, via two beautiful wineries. Trails were challenging and past gorgeous landscapes.
    Service was top.

    We did the Bigfoot escape room for our first time, we had no idea what to expect and we weren’t ready for all the different puzzles that led to a padlock, very good fun and would recommend, Travis was our host and he was awesome at helping but also letting us figure it out, would definitely recommend to not go straight to Bigfoot if it’s your first time, we got out with a minute to breath.

    We had so much fun on the HandleBar!! We met new people, ate great food, drank great drinks and got a work out!! The option to play your own music was a big hit and made the experience even more fun! We would definitely recommend the HandleBar to anyone visiting Adelaide and we'll be back for another go when we're next visiting.

    Did a tandem jump this morning with Richard. Bit nervous going up but boy, absolutely the best rush when you exit the plane. I've always thought, who in there right mind would want to jump out of a perfectly good aircraft? Now I know why. It is the best!!!

    My wife and I took the Z ward ghost tour tonight. Kag and Hanna provided a safe and very informative experience. The historical buildings provided a few eerie feeling. A mentioned several times there’s no guarantee you’ll see or feel anything however of me I believe I experienced something I couldn’t explain. In any case we had a great night thank you.
