You may have heard tall tales of the infamous Agroventures park in Rotorua, NZ – it was the stuff that modern day adventurers dreamed of. When it first opened in 1998, Agroventures launched the world’s first commercial custom-designed jet sprint course where participants go from zero to 100 km/hr in 4.5 seconds.
Fast forward 20 years and Rotorua’s original adventure park is still going strong, but with fresh new branding to live up to its new name. Agroventures is now known as Velocity Valley – New Zealand’s best adventure theme park offering a mix of rides and experiences designed to push your limits, defy gravity and quench your need for speed.
