We started with the quadbike and it was crazy. The topography of the place allows for great ride up n down the hills, through the farms.. Joseph was a great guide in here. Then we tried our hands at clay bird shooting. It was the best outdoor shooting u can do. Right out in the open from atop the hill. Craig is a great guide. Do try out the various guns specially the semi automatic one.

P.S. u get the buggy ride free for 10 mins while going for Claybird shooting. :p

Had this recommended by the hotel we were staying in, and it doesn't disappoint. Joseph was our guide and once we were all geared up we went through some practice laps to get used to the quads, then it was up into the forest along narrow paths, some steep, some, muddy, until we reached the top and had fantastic views out over Lake Rotorua. At all times, Joseph was looking out for us, encouraging us, and offering advice on technique etc. Then back down, a great way to spend an hour, well worth the effort. Highly recommended, and well worth a visit

Went clay bird shooting with Shaun and Stephen and had a great time. Shaun was very patient with new people and a great instructor. The range was on top of the hill and had amazing views and the facilities and guns were top notch - we got to try 3 different ones

I went to the Adventure playground with a friend, thinking the quad biking would be boring because we do it all the time at home.... how wrong was I?! Joseph was awesome he took us on the advanced tracks which were so much fun and quite challenging. This was by far the best part of the trip can't wait to do it again. Thanks Joseph for the adventure :-)
