My husband & I did a 2 hour tour & it was so much fun. The track is quite challenging in sections, but we made it out alive. Brent ( the owner & our guide) was great & gave us instruction where needed. It had rained 2 days before we went & there was plenty of mud around, so be warned, you will get dirty, even if it is dry! Definatly do this, you will love it.

Quadzone is just a five minute car ride from Rotorua. There is also other thrill seeking attraction in the area. Quadzone is a small operation but is big on hospitality. I liked how Quadzone assess your level of ability and match you to the most appropriate quad.
Just a hint dont wear good clothes as you can get very dusty, quadzone do offer gumboots.
Once up the top of the mountain the vista is amazing, you can see all over Rotorua. Quadzone offer rides by the hour but have extended packages.
Take a cold drink for after wards as you will be thirsty.
Don't forget to ask questions as the tour operator is very knowledgeable about Maori culture and the landscape. Thanks for a great day guys Deb and Phil

My family and i love travelling and finding adventurous things to do. We have two 15 year old boys. we have quad biked in Australia, but in Rotorua it was really great. We went through amazing tracks, into a forrest, deep tracks, open paddocks and very challenging hills. i am a 45 year old mum and i had a blast!! Our guide, Richard, was very good and told us when to slow down and how to take certain areas. We have done large ATV riding in the Alaskan Wilderness, but this was better!! The tracks were very challenging but achievable and you could go fast where it was suitable to do so. The scenery was spectacular and it was just the best fun we had in New Zealand! ( we did caving, rafting, jetboating, and lots lots more!) We were absolutely covered in dust, but we had a ball!

We had just over an hour on the quad bikes through the spectacular and scenic terrain. The views of Rotorua and the surrounding land alone are well worth the trip. The terrain at times was a little rugged, although was very fun! Our tour guide was very experienced and took time to even share some facts about the land and native flora and fauna. I highly recommend Quadzone to anyone who seeks thrill and adventure on four wheels!

Brent was a wonderful guide - experienced, great personality, catered to the different skills of the three of us (and didn't mind my screaming!!) Brent took us out on an early ride and was happy to snap photos on our camera! Totally recommend QuadZone to anyone - don't think, just do it!
