  • I had an incredible time doing a 1/2 day on the quads. Karl and Maria were very inviting from when I first showed up, unscheduled at 8am. Karl took me on an adventure, up and down the steep terrain of the beautiful property. I have a experience riding quads but this was the most memorable and rugged yet. I don't think I stopped smiling from start to finish. Returning to America, people keeping asking about my New Zealand highlights...Ruapehu Adventure Rides is the first that comes to mind.
  • We absolutely loved our experience here!! The people were all very nice and we especially liked our guide. He was easy going and fun while still remaining safety conscious and aware of our abilities. We were able to experience varying terrain such as grass, mud, and some very deep puddles. The Quads were in excellent shape (something that we have had issues with before during similar experiences in other countries) and we were provided with rubber boots and pants to stay dry! As a plus, they offered to take pictures for us which they later provided on Dropbox. We got lots of great group and action pictures!
  • Had such an amazing quad bike experience here, went with my family some had already been on a quad but I had never been on one before. Carl and Marie gave really good instructions of use and I found the quad easier than I thought to use. We went on the most beautiful scenic trail that was tailored to our abilities and I can honestly say that this was the best day our ever and cannot recommend this enough. If you want an amazing experience then book up for sure. Thanks Carl and Marie
  • Amazing! We had the most incredible time and didn’t want it to end. We had a quick lesson in how to use the quads before hitting the bush, going all over! We all picked it up quickly and the route we were taken on matched our ability. The owners are lovely people and make the experience what it is. A definite must do if you are nearby or passing through! It’s a hidden gem!
  • Went with some colleagues from work as an advanced group. They have amazing trails with beautiful views for those who are new to quad biking. They also have tracks that make your adrenaline flow if you're a thrill seeker. Combine that with guides who are thorough with safety information, and a great help on the ride, and this is one attraction worth giving a go! Thanks for the amazing experience! We all loved it!
