Celebrate life’s biggest milestones with Rotorua’s biggest thrills!

Throughout life, there’s plenty of magical moments that call for a celebration. Whether a small win or a big occasion, they’re always more enjoyable when spent with loved ones. From graduating high school or university, to proposing, getting married, and starting a family – and of course the annual birthday celebration – life is full of excuses to celebrate, kick back and have fun!

Get your friends and family together (or leave them at home with a babysitter and seize the opportunity for a romantic getaway) and take your celebration to new heights in New Zealand’s geothermal and adventure capital – Rotorua!

Reunite with your extended family

After border closures and lockdowns, we’ve all been missing our family from near and far. With more open international borders on the horizon, celebrate with your loved ones and spend a magical weekend in Rotorua together. You’ll find plenty of family-friendly accommodation and restaurant options, and an incredible range of activities to suit groups of all ages and thrill levels. Spend the morning soaking up the scenery and snapping those all-important pics for the family photo albums, before embarking on some adrenaline-filled antics, and rounding off the day with a delicious dinner together.

Celebrate your 21st birthday

Turning 21 is a rite of passage for all Kiwis – a sign of a new chapter beginning as you step into adulthood. And there’s nothing like a 21st to be bold and try something new – and with plenty of exhilarating experiences on offer in Rotorua, it’s the ultimate birthday destination!

Throw yourself off a 43-metre-tall bungy, experience gravity-defying thrills, soar through the native forest, roll down a hill in a giant inflatable ball, or take on a wicked mountain biking adventure. Or for a more calm and chill celebration, take to the skies on a scenic helicopter flight and feast on a gourmet buffet meal, before unwinding and soaking the day away in a geothermal hot pool.

The perfect place to pop the question

So love is in the air, and you’re ready to propose to your special someone? Surprise your fiancé-to-be with a thrilling proposal in Rotorua – in the air, on the water, or amongst the forest. With unique spots to pop the question like a high-flying swing, a geothermal stroll or kayaking adventure, or the idyllic surroundings of twinkling lakes and lush native trees, they’ll be awestruck by the thought and care you’ve put into this magical moment.

Spoil adventurous brides and grooms (stag & hen dos)

Fast-forward and you’re soon to tie the knot – but before the big day, there’s the all-important stag or hen’s do to plan! Amp up the adventure and spend an epic weekend away in Rotorua to let off some steam and celebrate with your besties. Stay at one of the many luxury lodges and accommodation options on offer, feast at award-winning restaurants, and of course, enjoy lots of adrenaline-filled activities – it’ll be a weekend to remember for the entire bridal or groom’s party.
