This is an educational site to visit and you can walk at a leisurely pace to see everything on your own time. I enjoyed taking tons of photos here.

It was an interesting walk through to see fissures bellowing gases from earth's belly.
A pleasant afternoon exercise, but honestly it would not be on the top of my to do list.
Nonetheless, it was a good lesson in geology and geothermal activity.

We went here before rotorua so had nothing to compare to. The walk is easy the craters are interesting and a couple very noisy. I'm glad we did this one First as the others are much larger and more impressive. However for the entry price this is also a good park. We enjoyed our time here and the steep walk for the views was lovely. I would recommend given the entry cost and what you get to view once inside the park.

A genuinely recent creation, with the fumaroles and other features becoming active after the opening of the geothermal power station in 1958. Good boardwalk and good signboards. In addition very helpful staff who shared information regarding the wider area.

This one of those places that is interesting to visit because it is unique, but it becomes boring very quickly. After the first fifteen minutes you've seen what is to be seen. We never really saw mud pools boiling, and apparently this is subject to the amount of rain in the preceding days.

Makes for interesting photos if you have an eye for composition, and provides for a bit of exercise because of the hour's walk.
