We had the most fantastic time at the troll cave, we went as a family group 2 adults and 2 children, 1 child was 2) We all had an amazing time, Peter was an awesome tour guide. I would highly recommend to all, we would even do it again it was so much fun! Loved the end where we got to see and touch the eels.

Highly recommend

Peter was so much fun to listen to and interact with over the course of our trip. The trip itself was unforgettable and a great family team building experience. We had so many laughs and enjoyed petting the eels at the end. Peter was very professional, great with my 7year old and lots of fun.

Family fun

What a great adventure. Heaps of effort put into the story, the cave and experience. Well choreographed and Peter was an excellent story teller. Frights and thrills to match. This is a must do!

Our two boys really enjoyed their time in the troll cave. They were 6 and 4, and were definitely challenged by some parts of it, but the guide is able to change the scary factor according to the group. They both keep talking about it and right now are working on a map of our house for our own house troll. The imagination factoring the Troll Cave is really high with lots of back story and details about trolls. I think it’s really unique for kids to experience such an immersive imaginative space with adults being part of the fantasy. I would recommend to all kids who have an interest in things that are a little bit spooky.

Cheers Luke ! We really appreciate your review. We're trying to give kids a way to be challenged in a controlled environment and get them to "look beyond their personal comfort envelope". Like many parents, we feel there's just too much bubble wrap out there nowadays. Every child is different and we don't want to "overcook "the challenge factor...So it's a tricky balance tailoring the presentation to individual families. The good news is that with the parents supporting, this becomes a growth experience ... "feeling a sense of uncertainty but taking on the challenge anyway". Great team building for the whole family !

More than what I expected

We absolutely loved this!! It was more than what I expected, definitely well done and the guide Pete was amazing, so good at what he does. It’s aimed for kids around 8 years old but my 11 and 13 year old loved it, as well as my 7 year old, she was slightly scared but it’s all in good fun!! Highly recommend if you are looking for something different to do.

Thanks Lisa ! Whilst there are other things at Waitomo that kids can do, this is the first underground adventure designed specifically for youngsters. We're having great fun with it and appreciate your support. !
