Very disappointing, isn’t erupting naturally at 10:15, at that time you first get a short explanation about the geyser and it’s history, than they throw soap in it (literally, you can see it and smell it), and then it starts bubbling and erupting. We asked them why they do it and the only reason is that in this way they can make it erupt at a specific time.

It was a wonderful experience and we thoroughly enjoyed our morning. A very informative talk re how the Geyser came about. Also three different walks round.

Very friendly staff. Good welcoming chat. Toilet only at ticketing centre. Get ticket before going onto geyser. NO CASH accepted except on our day when internet connection was down so they were desparate for cash. I only had cash so I was lucky as I had no plastic card on me.

It was good to see the geyser in action and to have the knowledge of the staff add to the experience, but it felt quite forced at times, as if the presenter was nervous or new to speaking in public.

The Lady Knox Geyser is near Rotorua. Being Aussies, we had never seen a geyser -- this one even erupted on time! As it turned out, they add detergent so the geyser can perform for the spectators. We were a little disappointed.

I was pretty curious how is geyser erupting every day exactly as 10:15AM and suddenly I found out. It's because of soap put inside by employee.
If I knew I'd not be attending the ceremonial...

It's a bit false as the geyser is triggered and there's huge pile of people watching - but there's no other way to guarantee seeing the geyser - so it's worth it. I'd recommend it.

Lady Knox Geyser erupts at 10:15 AM daily...but not without the help of a park employee who dumps detergent in it. After having seen Old Faithful in Yellowstone National Park (USA)...a huge geyser that erupts on schedule, without human assistance... this tiny manipulated eruption was disappointing, to say the least. I'm glad we didn't have to pay a separate fee to see it. However, the rest of the Wai-o-tapu geothermal park was definitely worth the price of admission.

We had never seen a geyser before so we were keen to see the Lady Knox geyser. The geyser was surrounded by sightseers. At the appoined time, a ranger gave s a short tallk, then poured something that appeared to be detergent into the geyser, After about five minutes the geyser erupted on cue. It was quite spectacular, but we felt a bit cheated.
