Add a dose of adrenaline to your Rotorua Mother’s Day celebrations

Mother’s Day is a time to celebrate the amazing women in our lives – the ones who nurtured our adventurous spirit and cheered us on as we climbed trees, reached new heights on the swings, and perfected our first trampoline flip. This year, give the usual playground an upgrade and treat Mum to an unforgettable time at Velocity Valley! Supersize your thrills and enjoy a fun-filled day out or weekend escape – here’s our top tips. 

Embrace the adventure (and the laughs) together 

She’s been by your side all these years, now it’s time to harness up side-by-side on Swoop, a giant swing that will send you soaring through the sky from 40 metres up in the air, at speeds of up to 130km/hour! Imagine the look on Mum’s face – that’s one you’ll be watching on replay. 

Remember when your parents taught you how to ride a bike? Put those pedaling skills into practice with Shweeb, and race around our high-tech monorail track that will have you all shrieking with laughter. For the truly fearless, give Mum a break from being behind the wheel, and conquer the Agrojet sprint course together, navigating 360° spins and thrilling turns on a powerful jet boat. 

If you can’t make it to Rotorua on Mother’s Day itself, but have an upcoming family holiday planned, then why not kick things off with a gift voucher? She might even accept the ultimate challenge and take on the Vertigo freefall drop – #coolestmumever.

The Fun Keeps on Coming  

Not all heroes wear capes – some conquer mazes! Put your teamwork skills to the test by navigating the mind-bending aMAZEme maze. Weave your way through winding paths and sneaky dead-ends, working together to find the exit in this 1.4-kilometre-long hedge maze. Celebrate your accomplishment with a victory dance and a picnic as you reminisce over a journey full of twists and surprises. Our Ride and Seek combo offers the perfect half-day family adventure for a great low price. 

For a dose of farmyard fun, head to Agrodome next door. This working sheep farm offers a unique opportunity to learn about life on the farm and see sheep shearing demonstrations first-hand. Plus, the whole whānau can hand-feed loads of friendly animals. Save with a farmtastic family combo – this Rotorua package deal gives you all the Mother’s Day joy without the pricetag. 

Fuel up and enjoy kai together 

Enjoy a special Mother’s Day lunch together – perhaps at Stratosfare Restaurant where delicious bites meet epic skyline views? Feel ‘on top of the world’ as you tuck into a buffet feast – before taking on an exhilarating downhill Luge experience to top off the day. These are those moments you’ll all cherish long after the day is over. 

Celebrate Mum her way 

Whether Mum thrives on thrills, enjoys a healthy dose of competition, or is simply after some family time in Rotorua, show her just how much she means to you this Mother’s Day by creating an incredible adventure she’ll never forget! May 12th is all about creating lasting memories with the ones you love – and from all of us at Velocity Valley, wishing you a warm and wholesome Mother’s Day.
