Really enjoyed this. Good power in the quads, nice and muddy (as muddy as you want to get really) and really good tracks. It’s a no brainer to hire the wet weather gear, especially the wellies so you can concentrate on picking a good line....More

Well run fun activity with just the right focus on safety intermingled with fun. Lots of hills and deep puddles. Even saw a pig and a pheasant sunning itself in the next door paddock.

Had an amazing afternoon riding through rainforests and splashing through pools of mud for an hour. The owner gave practical advice and was very helpful and patient. Thanks for a fun afternoon.

Starting from the owner which is probably the least respectful person you can find around Taupo's area, rude and barbarian, the quad ride is usually shorter than what you pay for, not very exciting and even more, extremely unsafe. The owner all it does is...More
