The staff was wonderful to work with. Great activity! When else are you going to be able to ride inside of a shark to see the lake and the mountains?

I was so excited about Hydoattack. It was a must do for me and my partner since planning our trip of a lifetime holiday to NZ. Last minute nerves about getting in and out of the boat almost got the better of me. But the...More

Wow, this is a super cool excursion. Donuts, figure of 8’s, dives and jumps, it has it all. And the beautiful blue of the lake just adds to the beauty of it. Would definitely do this again!

This is a FANTASTIC experience. I spotted these two small craft from the gondolas and wondered why they kept disappearing. I was easily persuaded to have a go in one after watching the short clip of what they can do. The pilot, Rory, was a...More

I had so much fun in the shark today. The driver was super friendly. I know it’s a bit expensive but definitely worth doing if you have the money for it. (Do not do this if you get motion sick though!)

Hi Chelsea, It is an aquatic rollercoaster ride, that's for sure. Thanks for the five stars. Kind regards, The Hydro Attack Team

You go under water and then jump up 18 feet into the air and the landing isn’t rough at all. The drivers are very good

Hi, The landing is often a lot softer than people expect as the hull is a V shape that cuts the water. Also the bigger the jump the smoother the landing. Sounds like you got some good air. Kind regards, The Hydro Attack Team
