Five of the best adventure activities to add to your Rotorua business event

Got a trade show or conference coming up in Rotorua? Then you’ll want to make sure you’ve got some fun activities planned once the big event is done and dusted.

To help you kick things up a notch, we’ve put together a few of the best things to do in Rotorua. From epic four-wheel-drive adventures to thrilling white-water rafting trips, these group activities will be sure to excite, delight, and ignite your guests.

1. Off Road NZ

What better way to shake off the afternoon fatigue than by heading out on some of the best 4WD tracks in New Zealand? For a hassle-free addition to your business event, you can’t go past Off Road NZ. Catering for petrol heads and nature enthusiasts alike, Off Road NZ has plenty of group adventures to choose from.

Get the adrenaline pumping by swinging into one of the coolest monster trucks in NZ for the Monster 4X4 Thrill Ride, or take a drive through magnificent native forest on a 4WD Suzuki Jimny safari.

Perfect for team building in Rotorua, Off Road NZ offers some of the best self-drive adventures that will have your team engaging in a bit of friendly competition to be crowned the ultimate 4WD champion.

2. Redwoods Altitude

Channel your inner Indiana Jones and take the crew out to tackle the Redwoods Altitude course. Featuring 25 jungle-style bridges, three thrilling ziplines, and one big leap of faith, this course will have even the adrenaline-junkies shaking in their boots.

Your team will be led up a spiral staircase until you reach the 25-metre-high start point. You’ll then be guided around a 650 metre loop made up of bridges and platforms, as your guides share from their treasure trove of local knowledge, all about the history of the incredible Redwood Forest.

3. Skyline Luge Rotorua

The Skyline Luge is a crowd favourite for a reason. Featuring over 7 kilometres of whirlwind twists and turns, this adventure playground has tracks to suit every confidence level, making it the perfect activity to add onto your conference or trade show.

A unique fusion of go-kart and toboggan, the mechanics of the Luge carts are pretty impressive. Using a braking and steering system that only requires you to move the handlebars up and down to stop and go, anyone can easily take part.

The Tiki Tour is a great track to get warmed up and familiarise yourself with how it all works. Once you’ve got it down pat, you can take on the more advanced tracks titled Twister, Ultra, and Gravity.

4. ZORB Rotorua

A great way for your team to let off some steam and make absolute fools of themselves, the ZORB Rotorua is a laughter-filled experience like no other.

Roll down a hill in a giant inflatable ball along four different tracks, with something for every employee. The world’s longest zig-zag track, the Sidewinder, is a firm favourite, whilst the newest track, aptly named MEGA, is the fastest and steepest track of the lot.

The secret to the success of this bizarre but insanely fun activity is the 40 litres of fresh water that goes into every ball. But don’t worry, the temperature of the water depends on the season – they use warm water in winter and cool water in summer so it’s always the perfect temperature.

5. Rotorua Rafting

For the ultimate Rotorua adventure, you can’t go past white-water rafting with Rotorua Rafting. Taking place on the highest commercially rafted waterfall in the world, this action-packed activity has been voted as the #1 Traveller’s Choice experience in New Zealand.

Home to three spectacular waterfalls, the Kaituna River is Rotorua Rafting’s playground. Full of breathtaking drops and perilous paddling, your team will be holding on for dear life as they take part in the journey of a lifetime.

The best part about this activity is that the local guides can tailor your rafting tour to the needs of your group – so even Karen from accounts will have the best experience ever!
