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.

Is there an age limit for the quad bikes - we have a 12 year old in our group

Answer
Response from HappyValleyNZ | Property representative |
All Riders must be 16 years of age but anyone 5 years and up can be a passenger. We have limited passenger bikes and these get sold out quickly.

Do you need to do all the activities or just choose one? I am interested in the zipline activity. Thanks K

No. You can choose any activity. If you just want to do the Skywire, come on out.
