Mountain biking

Awesome coach! We really enjoyed it even though it was our first time doing mountain biking. The coach was very thorough and we felt safe with her. The view at the top is amazing too

Mountain biking lesson

Had a lesson with Asher, this was really the first time I had been on a mountain bike trail. His instructions and guidance was excellent and very clear. Learnt alot about how to corner correctly and also didn't think I would ever have stood up on a mountain bike. Took abit longer to come down the hill but that didn't seem to worry him. Overall the whole experience was brilliant, that also includes the cafe accommodating my request for just a toasted Sandwich. Nice and clean and very helpful staff.

Downhill MB

Unfortunately my first experience wasn't very pleasant. 5 of us booked through the website for the same time a beginners mountain biking class for most of us this was the first time ever attempting downhill mountain biking. To begin with, we had issues with the bookings we made and communication with staff. We were distributed into 2 separate groups. Once we rang the Park, they said they have sorted it but when one of us turned up on the day she was told that she will be in a group an hour later. The chairlift had some unknown issues and I got stuck on it for over 45 minutes. By the time we got to the top of the hill I was demotivated and completely frozen. At the end of the experience, even though the instructor apologized we were not offered any discounts not even a complimentary drink for the inconvenience caused. Some of us had to be at other events that they missed due to the technical issues. The instructor was great, but overall the experience wasn't. The bikes and gear provided were great.

Christchurch Adventure Park - Great Stuff!

Asher our instructer was fantastic, he showed us the finer points of downhill riding, braking, cornering etc before taking us up the hill and guiding us down. He made it so much fun and we can't wait to head up to the park again.
