    We visited 3D Trick Art Gallery while staying in Rotorua and enjoyed all the fun 3D pictures where you can become part of the picture. The only thing we didn't like was there were a lot of people and pushing in front so we missed a few photo spots. Need to send people through at 10 minute intervals and tell them that they only have a 10 minute start on the next. Otherwise, it was fun and we got some really cool photos

    Rotorua aquatic centre was well priced, clean and the staff helpful ensuring a great experience for everyone. Pool variety and experiences best I have seen on this trip. Keep up the good work.

    We did the kitchen escape and it was amazing! My first escape room but it will be definitely hard to beat! Wish we were in Rotorua longer so we could try the strip club room! Loved that you need to escape several different rooms ! Great clues and props!!

    All the kids had the best time hearing them giggling and laughing their way down the hill so fun! Spa pools to keep them warm at the top and bottom and a van to drive them up the hill! Changing rooms too! The photos were really good too! Thank you

    This is so fun!! Fun and holes easy enough that anyone could give it a go. The rabbits are very friendly (and sometimes like to sit in the middle of the course 🤣) I have been twice and both times it was fun. Better at night though because the rabbits come out and beautiful lights go on!!

    This was the second time we have been to Escape Masters in Rotorua and enjoyed both times. The mini-escape room was fun, and nice for doing with kids who may have a shorter attention span.

    Took the grand kids all had a ball. Bit puzzled by 1 of the clues ;excellent brain teaser but still great fun !!! in fact, the best yet even though we couldn't escape (that 1 clue took up most of the time)
    Put it on your bucket list as a "to do"

    Awesome place to take the family. A range of activities for our least active members to our very active members. Wish we had a place like this in Auckland.

    This is by far one of my favourite mini golf courses I’ve been to! The props and theme were so much fun! Couple of different holes from your standard mini golf too!

    Great hidden gem in the middle of Rotorua. Friendly professional staff who know all about climbing and love what they do. Safety briefing and personalised instruction prepare the climbers for a great session. Wall climbs cater for all skill and experience levels. Unique climbing holds add a real sense of fun. They even have great coffee and a snack menu. There is a good viewing area to watch the climbers challenge themselves while having a coffee too. There is also a cinema (Basement Cinema) here which I look forward to checking out next time, showing the latest movies.

    It was a wonderful experience, the car is weds setup with decent performance, the tyres are certainly not in its peak due to the need of “Lack of grip” for drifting, but the Kart is in decent shape, at least it is not greasy at all.

    The Track itself is pretty short, but it has enough corner for your swing your car around it. Again, it is not a greasy track, nor dusty neither, it is clean but shinny and looked slippery

    The staff should be the boss, in fact, it is such a small venue so it won’t need many people to handle it anyway, and he is nice, a nice guy with quite a lot of automobile knowledge. He is relatively easy to chat with as long as you respect his rule, and he gradually release the power of his car to us as we get along

    Generally, it’s fun, lots of fun, a lot of fun!!!! I didn’t realise I could drift a Kart like this.... it’s easy to control, and power is not an issue, because the boss generally give you more if he see you could control the Kart, in general, I recommend if you’re a petrol head!!

    A great family activity!!! Lots of fun. A lovely family who run it who are really friendly and welcoming. Maze is challenging but fun. Games before or after and a petting zoo. Well worth a visit.

    We booked a couple lanes for 17 people. Everyone had a great time whilst bowling. One lane broke down a couple times and the cafe had closed 20mins early so we couldn't buy any snacks for while we were bowling

    Went to Rotorua for the day and wanted to entertain our 2 year old grandson who loves his trampoline. He had a great time with his dad and uncle both joining in the fun. Pleasant helpful staff. All the kids were loving it.
