Desperate for a day out, this was a perfect family afternoon activity. Conquered the self drive track then thrilled on the monster 4x4 ride. We are still talking about it and recommending to everyone!

Self-drive of their 4 wheel dive vehicles though off road tracks and water hazards was the best activity we did in Rotorua. Particularly awesome was the 6metre vertical drop. My partner and I were able to take turns at driving. Oud guide Dom was real friendly and helpful too.

My partner and I visited Off Road NZ during our stay in Rotorua, and it’s definitely one of the best activities we did! For anyone who wants something a bit different, this is definitely a must. We did the Freak of Nature package which included the 4WD Bush Safari and 4x4 Monster Thrill Ride. The 4WD Bush Safari was amazing. You drive the vehicle yourself and a guide walks around the track and communicates via radio to tell you where to go. You go through deep water, mud, up hills, steep drops and there are a few challenges which were heaps of fun! The tracks are well made but still make you feel like you’re actually off-road. “The Luge” drop was definitely a highlight. You also go through some really deep water and on a steep My partner has owned trucks before and done a lot of 4WDing and still had a great time. Obviously you have to go relatively slow around the track but there are some more technical and challenging bits to make it exciting! Our guide was Cory and he was amazing at explaining everything and made the trip lots of fun! He was a great guide and also had plenty of knowledge about the area etc The Monster Ride was great fun too! As someone who has done plenty of adrenalin activities, I thought this might be a bit mundane for me - but it was very thrilling and loads of fun! The 4x4 was crazy and the track has lots of twists and turns. Overall an amazing experience! All the staff were super friendly and it was a great facility, I can’t wait to come back one day!

Husband and I had done this trip about 12 years ago and loved it so we decided to take Mr 7 along for the ride this time. He had a ball. He sat in the front seat (on his booster seat) and got the best view of all the water holes, crazy leans and bridges, not to mention the waterfall and the luge. So much fun and cannot recommend it highly enough. Thanks Dom - you made it really safe and really fun. Looks like we’ll be back to to the Monster 4 x 4 sometime soon!!
