This is super fun - the 360 degree spins and whizzing through crystal clear water... it doesn't get much better! Also, you get up so close to Huka Falls. Such a beautiful waterfall!! 10/10, well worth it.

When in Rome...a nice way to see the river and falls. Always up for a bit of adrenaline, however a few more spins would be good.

Sorry! Just saw this. They can store your stuff behind the desk in the store. I had a small lock on my bag too. They're trustworthy staff!
