“Adrenalin rush ”
Reviewed 6 January 2017 via mobile

Friendly staff and good vibes. Unhurried and relaxed atmosphere. The Skywire was a real adrenalin rush. Initially hesitant to do it (fear of heights) but encouraged to do so by the staff I did it and was glad I did. Highly recommended.

“Quad biking & skyline”
Reviewed 27 December 2016 via mobile

Had an amazing trip to Happy Valley Adventures. Our tour guide, who was also the mechanic, patiently taught us to ride quad bikes before taking us to the nearby mountain. We did the flying fox before continuing to the top of the mountain for cheese, bickies and a cool drink or coffee. The view was amazing, even being lucky to have the day clear enough to spot a peak on the North island in the distance. Back down and some excitement through the paddocks. It was a fantastic experience, our guide was knowledgable, friendly but non-intrusive. Definitely recommend.

Evan will be very pleased to hear you had a good time out with him. We very rarely get to see Mt Taranaki and when we do its meant to mean rain within 3 days. Its a stunning view that not many clients get to experience.Thanks for the Great review.

Reviewed 23 December 2016

We did the skywire and it was fantastic, just like flying at great speed, fantastic views soaring over the forest canopy. Great friendly staff.

“Great fun”
Reviewed 22 December 2016 via mobile

There were three of us in our group and we did the combo tour .. all inexperienced quad bikers. Staff were attentive and wen through quad bike safety diligently. The speed and pace was good .

Thoroughly enjoyed the rush of the sky wire. Going backwards was like going through a time tunnel.

Snacks of cheese and biscuits overlooking cable Bay was stunning. Great guides.

“We did the combo”
Reviewed 30 November 2016

We wanted to do the skywire but took the combo option and rode the quad bikes as well which was great. We had a short tuition session and practice before we set off and really enjoyed it.
