We only went to check out rock n ropes whilst at the honey place with three little boys. The guy that was working that day gave us a really good deal for the boys to go on the huge flying fox. Thanks so much, it really made their holiday in taupo

We had a great time at Rock n Ropes. Lots of varied activities, all fun and thrilling. Absolutely loved the giant swing. Thanks to Phil, Martin and the team for a great time.

Great fun taking on the rope course. Enjoyed Phil's sense of humour and the challenges he put us through on the course. Thanks to Martin for helping us survive the big swing!

The best thing I did in NZ, the course was a lot of fun and more challenging than expected. I loved it all except the giant swing, I wouldn't do that again. You definitely get your moneys worth, we paid $70 and were there for over 3 hours.

For someone who is afraid of heights this was a massive head screw. Even though you are all strapped up so many tricks are being played in your mind. This is one of the best activities I have ever done. Phil and Martin (instructors) talked you through everything and were professional but also a good laugh. What an amazing couple... More

Phil and the team are great - awesome customer service - really encouraging and also really supportive to the little one who wasn't as confident as his brothers and sisters, making it fun for all levels. Three of our kids are the fearless type, who will give anything a go. Boy aged 14, Girl aged 13 and another boy aged... More

Headed out to rock n ropes with a friend for a fun afternoon, and we were not disappointed. Marty (our instructor) was fantastic at his job, making sure we felt as safe as could be yet still taking time to have some fun and mess with us a little. Would recommend for anyone (even if your scared of heights like... More

An awful experience. Phillip was a nasty, condescending man who gave a great establishment a horrible name. I will be advising everyone I know never to visit. I left feeling awful as his actions were inexcusable and displayed the worst customer service I have ever encountered. Your establishment is meant to boost spirits. I spent my time there trying not... More
