Have you experienced the excitement at Taupo’s biggest entertainment centre yet? Inside Wharewaka’s The Landing complex, The Dropzone is a hub of fun for all ages, rain or shine. Here’s what a full day out at The Dropzone could look like.

Start your day of thrills and laughter at the Bounce Park. Letting off steam on their trampolines is the best way to start the day! For a whole hour, bounce, play, flip, and slide your way around the bounce zone. If you’re watching the kids and feel like you need an energy boost as well, you can join in the fun – or watch sedately from the nearby viewing area with a hot drink. Passes also include access to the new Mega Slides for speed racing fun!

The Ninja course, which has recently moved outside and been made bigger and better, is open for anyone over 12 years of age. Ninja course contenders will make their way through a series of physical challenges, including scaling high walls, swinging between obstacles, and hanging upside down in the hope of being crowned champion. Race a group of your mates or tackle the course solo to beat your own personal best.

Kids will also find even more thrills at Playland, an indoor playground full of bright colours and textures and a delight for the senses. The multilevel playground lets kids do what they do best – climb, slide and explore. There are also two new Mega Slides for ultimate sliding fun. After all that activity, it might be time for a snack and a break. 

Luckily, The Dropzone has its own full bar and bistro, serving up delicious burgers and pizzas, alongside a range of refreshing hot and cold drinks. Gutter Balls Bar & Bistro is also fully licensed for all your celebratory drinks. Once you’ve got some energy back, test your competitiveness in the arcade, with the latest interactive video games, virtual bikes, car racing, shooting games, and more.

See how many prizes you can win! The awesome tenpin bowling alley is also great for testing your skills against your friends. With ten lanes, the latest technology, fresh tunes, and exciting atmosphere, it’s a popular spot both day and night. Bookings for most activities at The Dropzone are recommended to avoid disappointment at busy times – check The Landing’s website for more details.
