The wife dragged me to this one as I'm not a fan of falling from the sky or adventure sports of this nature. We bought a 6 ticket option and myself, the wife and the oldest son did the freefall (wind tunnel) ride. The wife did the swoop (as you wouldn't find me dead on that ride ever) and the two kids (10 and 5) did the boat ride. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the events. The price was really reasonable. I'd suggest you take your own photos / videos as the price for that component is quite a expensive (so we didn't take it and our footage is more than sufficient).

We paid for 8 rides (249$) and did the freefall extreme, the swoop, agrojet and schweeb. The swoop was the best and great value for $40 each for a single ride. For $50 we got 3 videos and about 25 photos. Start with the easier ones and build up. Since my wife wanted to get the swoop over and done with early, the agrojet seemed a bit tame after it, but it's still a must do in adrenaline junky NZ. The kids loved the agrojet too. On the other side (and I have to be a bit picky to find some of the negatives) there was one person being trained and the girl who gave the instructions for the freefall felt very new, and they also lost one of my videos (which of course I didn't pay for), but otherwise we would come back (especially to try the V-force).

This was a highlight of our trip to Rotorua with the whole family having a blast. The 10 ticket family option gave us all the chance to pick what activities we wanted to try. The four of us did the jet boat ride first, which was awesome! We followed that with the skydive simulator which was also great. Finally we catapulted our boys up into the air which was truly terrifying! Overall it was a great afternoon, the staff were friendly, fun and safety conscious. Although it was the school holidays we didn't have to wait long for our activities and it was a great way to try out some fun new activities.

Freefall experience - The flying part was really good but a bit disappointed about the lack of encouragement and professionalism given. The instructor was talking very fast, rushing through, hard to catch every words, some bad jokes in front of kids and not showing any kind of reassurance which was not great for people who are doing this for the first time, especially young children.

Kia Ora ClaritadelaPampa, We are sorry to hear that your experience at Freefall Xtreme wasn't as you would have hoped. We have had some summer staff start over the busy period who may still have been learning the ins and outs of Freefall Xtreme training procedures. If you wouldn't mind, could you please send us an email at reservations@velocityvalley.co.nz with some more information and any descriptions of the operator and the day you came into the park so that we can provide constructive feedback to our team. We hope to see you and your family again in the future and provide a better FreeFall Xtreme experience for you, Warm Regards, Velocity Valley Team.

My 9 year old son absolutely love this place! We tried almost all the activities and my son repeated all the activities that he tried over and over again. In fact, he had so much fun, he begged us to take him again to VV the very next day! And we did!
