Bunnies enjoyed the experience however, room for improvement. In regards to the camera, it would be really nice to have a camera that is tracking your every move from beginning to end. This means a group photo of everyone on the boat (including the hosts) to you getting ready (helmet etc) for your experience and while in the air the... More

This has been on my bucket list for a long time and I seriously didn't think I would ever get past my reservations about doing it. I have some mobility issues and was concerned that it might be painful or that I just wouldn't be flexible enough to do this. After talking with the lady at the information centre she... More

Had such a great time doing this, I'm a bit scared of heights but found this really fun and not scary at all. Would highly recommend, the whole operation was smoothly run.

What an amazing experience, still can't stop smiling! After a short ride on the boat I was lifted high up in the sky. From approximately 1200 feet you have a fanatic view over paihia and it's unique landscape. Very nice, friendly and professional crew made this event just awesome! Will definitely do it again!

My two tweens and I had a fabulous time floating high up in the sky over Paihia and Russell these latest school holidays. Such fun and just a big enough 'stretch' for all parties to feel the adrenalin but feel safe with it too! The girls and I loved it and had beaming grins all over our face all the... More
