Great adventure!

What a fun experience! At first, I was super anxious, but our lovely guide Lee quickly noticed and was great at getting the nerves under control with lots of fun facts and information. I soon relaxed and could enjoy the beautiful scenery. What a great adventure! I would rate this higher than the canopy tour with the zipline alone as this has more variety. A must-do when you are in Rotorua! 10/10 for Lee who even got me to do the 20m sail at the end which was one of the highlights!

High wire adrenaline

It was a cold winters day but once we got up in the trees there was no wind and the sun came out for a really fun time climbing and zipping around the Altitude experience.

Adrenaline experience

As long as you hold on to the purple strap when using the bridges, you will be fine. The zip lines are fun and the drop at the end is awesome - don't look down just step off looking out to the forest, only wimps fall backwards - not nearly as thrilling!

My wife and I had a great day! Definitely worth the money. The guides were good and the experience was good. We’re going again but will do the night time one next
