July fun time in the sun
Jun 2021
awesome day out thanks to the host Erykha for making it happen! me and my fiancée had a blast shooting the clay pidgins for starters, the crew here were on it regarding setting us up and tips on how to shoot.

then it was the self-drive buggys which was awesome fun, tearing up and down the farm and into native bush areas to get low down and muddy.

had fun getting stuck in the mud and the rescue that followed was a laugh, thoroughly enjoyed the adventure and the crew were awesome!

keep up the good work...

INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCE with AMAZING SERVICE!!!
May 2021
The young lady at the front desk who returned my 3 missed calls (coz I was uncertain about whether or not I could make the times) was absolutely lovely! We arrived literally 16 minutes after our conversation as I really wanted to do the self-drive activity & the clay shooting but online it said there were no times available until the afternoon, but she squeezed us in at 11.30!

Our driving instructor Joshua was awesome! He gave detailed safety instructions which were clear (only a fool would miss/forget/not listen too). He respected & understood my own lack of confidence with driving the buggy, so advised me when the easier routes were coming up so that I could have aturn driving & could switch with my partner who did most of the driving.

We made pit stop at the top to appreciate the epic view of Lake Rotorua & took some incredible scenic photos, thanks to the help of Joshua for taking some panoramic shots of us also! Then continued to the forest to appreciate the ngahere leased to Adventure Playground where Joshua showed us a little whare that the team themselves had built for the patupairehe (forest fairies).

Then we returned to base to be given another buggy ride (as passengers this time) by Ihaia who was taking us Clay Shooting. From the drive alone I enjoyed Ihaia korero! (even if some of it was banter between us maori).

At the shooting range, he explained all the do's & don't of using the guns, the different types of guns we could use & general safety advice. Ihaia was respectful & patient with myself & my partner the entire time! He made the entire experience fun & gave us little challenges to better improve our shots & boost our confidence trying the different guns & taking various shots! He also took some incredibly close-up slow-mo's of us shooting (even if I didn't land many haha) lastly, he took some epic photos of myself & my partner! (Ihaia, are you a part-time photographer in your spare time!? haha!).

Thank you all so much for the amazing experience, I couldn't rave about the experience enough!

Great buggy experience!
Mar 2021
What an awesome experience it is! We had Izzy as our tour guide and he was really fun and a very informative one! Lots of tricks in taking a good photo :) The views of Rotorua from the the top was very nice. We were lucky to be in a nice weather (gloomy and a little bit of rain) which makes the forest encounter much better. Happy to hear that they are making more activities in the next few months so watch for it! We'll surely be back for that. Thank you Adventure Playground for the wonderful experience!

Adrenaline and beauty rolled into one
Mar 2021
It was just us and our guide Ester, what a great trip. Plenty of pot holes and twists and turns to get your adrenaline going. Great view points to take photos of Lake Rotorua and Rotoiti beyond. But my favourite part was the forest stop it was so tranquil . Ester was an excellent guide, very informative and has a great sense of humour. It’s a must do activity if you are in Rotorua rain or shine. Thanks guys for the experience.

Wow what a fun time!! This was far better than I had imagined. I thought we were going for a quiet 4x4 drive, when in fact we got to race up and down the mountain in very quick Off Road Machines!! A good driving challenge and a truly exhilarating experience! 5 Stars!
