A bunch of friends went to try out the water-ski at blue rock. At the gate we were asked an entrance fee. At Vergelegen I can understand it, but here? Really? My friends enjoyed the water-ski which worked well, but I refused to spend another cent for waterski or at the restaurant as I believe that it isn't an establishment... More

Nothing wow at all. Will only be enjoyed if you are visiting specifically for the water sport reason and nothing else.

We went to Blue Rock Adventure Park for a late lunch and not for the Park section. it is a very nice set-up with all kinds of activities like paint ball and skiing without a boat but with a cable (my first time to see this) and also a little beach and area to swim. Even though the toilets are... More

Admittedly we come mostly for the cable park. It is well maintained, has a couple of nice features (unit: funbox, rooftop, 2x flatbars, kicker; as well as two homemade items). The motor tower is high and has a a good pull. The fact that there are sheer cliffs at towers 1-3 means it is not only really cool, but there... More

There are no aids to assist one to get out of the water. I tripped over metal sticking out of ground. Bad injury. Child stepped into glass near 3m rock jump. deep cut.

The entry fee does not cover even the most basic amenities e.g. shade or access to drinking water. A family day out can easily run into thousands of rands; clearly not geared to locals. We arrived. Paid. Drove down. THEN we were informed about all the extra charges. An hour wasted but at least we got our money back. Will... More

Brilliant water sports. Picnic areas. Perfect family outing. Bring meat and have a braai. Own alcohol not allowed. The owner and his wife are very friendly and hands on, which is a plus. Waiters are a little slow though. Be patient.

We had my son's birthday party at Blue Rock. The venue is neat and tidy. Activities include water skiing; zip lining and swimming. Blue Rock is in a old quarry. Kids can have fun in a safe environment.
