Agrojet is a form of the iconic jet boat, famous as being created in the country in the 1950’s. It is a Kiwi gem, and its present in Rotorua for visitors to experience and enjoy. The focus of this jet boat, however, is not on the scenery. It is all about pure speed. The boat can reach incredible speeds of 100 kilometres per hour; making it one of New Zealand’s fasted jet boats, and the first to boast the ability to ‘sprint’. What’s more, full 360 degree turns make the adventure even more spine-tingling.
Just across the park from the Agrojet is Rotorua Bungy. If you’re looking for a pure thrill, then
The Swoop is yet another stomach-dropping adventure, high above the Rotorua greenery and mountains. This experience, as claimed by some, is even more breathtaking than the bungy jump! You’re placed inside a harness, covering most of your body, and raised a crazy 40 metres in the air. You’re then in control of your own fate as you’re free to pull the chord yourself, and propel you – and up to two other friends – through the air at 130 kilometres per hour. Prepare for screams; this really is the ultimate swing!
