Why Off Road NZ is full of surprisingly-good fun!

You don’t have to be a speedster or a petrol-head to have an epic time at Off Road NZ – in fact, so many of our first-time visitors surprise themselves with how much fun they have! Over the years, we’ve welcomed both young and old, newbies and pros, the hesitant and the confident. They all have one thing in common – after going out for a spin on our Monster 4X4, 4WD Jimny’s, or Raceline Karts, everyone leaves feeling exhilarated – and ready for round two! 

​We pride ourselves on being the #1 memory-making location in Rotorua – with everyone enjoying plenty of giggles, laughs (and a few screams!) during a fun-filled day. Whether you’re travelling with friends, off on a family roadie, or enjoying a getaway with your significant other, here’s why you should stop in for a spin. 

Enjoy some family bonding time – and the ultimate kids vs. parents challenge! 

You may have been cooped up with your family a fair bit over the past couple of years – so escaping the house and getting into the great outdoors for some quality family time is the perfect remedy. 

For your next school holidays or long weekend, break up the routine and enjoy a change in scenery by bringing your loved ones along for some Off Road antics – and some friendly challenges. Our diverse range of adventures means there’s something to suit every age group and skill level – especially our 4WD Bush Safari which has no minimum age requirement.

First dates, surprise proposals and magical weddings – love is in the air! 

It might surprise you, but there’s a romantic side to our adrenaline-filled activities! If you’re visiting Rotorua with your other half, we’d love to help make your date (or even proposal?) as special as possible. With so many jaw-droppingly beautiful locations across our native Mamaku forest, plenty of private and secluded spots, and of course, lots of laughter-inducing moments; nothing says I-love-you like a thrilling Off Road NZ experience. 

If you’re soon to tie the knot, we are well-known for being a one of-a-kind wedding venue. The rustic charm of our Native Bush Camp venue, paired with the natural beauty of the native bush surrounds make for the perfect backdrop for your special day.

We’re a scenic spot full of Instagrammable moments 

At Off Road NZ, you’re sure to create plenty of incredible memories with your friends and family. Remember the day with plenty of Insta-worthy snaps – and maybe even a TikTok or two! We’ve got the ball rolling for you with some creative photo scavenger hunt ideas – be sure to tag us online with the final results. Snap some hilarious before-and-after pictures, capture the incredible scenery and birdlife, or bring your GoPro for some wicked action shots. You’ll look back on these memories for a long time to come!

As you can see, we’re more than just a spot for adrenaline-seekers, but also offer amazing experiences for nature lovers, first-time adventurers, curious explorers, and anyone who’s keen to get outside their comfort zone and try something new. Whether you’re getting behind the wheel or getting cosy in the passenger seat – we look forward to seeing you soon!
