Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Second time here and they didn't dissapoint. We had an awesome time. Was great to have the van pick us up and they were very accomodating and the activities were well run. 20/10 would recommend to anyone wanting a bit of fun with mates! Staff were friendly and great to talk to. Thank you so much!

We had a group of 18 people, including kids and adults. It was a lot of fun, I didn’t realise how much I would love these activities. The combat archery brought out our competitive side 😂 Never seen human foosball like this before, great fun. Thank you

Such a great time! We saw friendship dynamics grow between people in our team who had barely spoken to each other before, become friends and allies on the battlefield of paintball.

Took the team here on a work outing to play paintball and had a really fantastic time. From the off everything was done to a highly professional degree with some great humour chucked in to boot. We all had a lovely time and would definitely recommend the playground to anyone interested!

Fabulous and Fun!! We were the envy of the rest of the school. Our HPE groups aged between 13-14yrs had a blast out on the field. We had organised for the Playground Team to come to us and they set out the activity with next to no fuss. All of the students had so much fun, from those that had had a go before to the ones that hadn't. It was easy to get use to and for the more active and competitive students they were loving the somersaulting and rolling around. The staff were amazing and run the activity for us. I would highly recommend bubble soccer and it was also hilarious to watch.

What a fantastic business in Queenstown. Our group of 25 teenagers absolutely loved it and rated it as the best activity they did on an 11 day tour of New Zealand. We did the Ropes Challenge and Archery Combat, perfectly suited to our group. Event the four adult managers could get involved (and get some payback with the Archery Combat)! Penny & Aaron are wonderful to deal with, lots of fun and laughs. They were so accommodating and nothing was a bother for them. The facility is great, lots of open space to do all the activities and their office has toilets, water and a few small snacks for purchase. We will be putting The Playground on our regular itinerary from now on.
