A Chuffed Gift is unique because the recipient chooses which experience they want to do!  Each gift has up to 120 options from all across New Zealand

Secret Spot:

You get your own tub for just the two of you, no interruptions or rowdy swimmers with you!

The 12 tubs are secluded and set outside amongst the tree ferns, with optional umbrellas over the tub to shade you from the sun or rain. At night you soak in a magical setting of lanterns amongst the beautifully lit surrounding native bush.

Oh, and what goes well with a hot tub soak after a big day’s adventure? A nice cold craft beer or cider or refreshing beverage of your choice. Just like a journey to our favourite hot stream in the bush, there’s built in lots of cool little surprises for you to discover on your visit to Secret Spot. After showering and changing in brand-new cedar facilities, and picking up your flax kete (basket) with craft beverage of your choice, you head down the boardwalk through the ferns to find your secluded hot tub next to the Waipa stream. Relax, share the stories from your day’s adventures, and connect with nature.


Superman dive into a giant inflatable ball and roll down Mt Ngongotaha with ZORB, where the fun will have you laughing uncontrollably.

The experience of rolling down a hill inside a giant inflatable ball has been an iconic adventure experience since Andrew and David Akers invented and developed the first ever ZORB site in the world back in 1997 at this very location!

To this day, Rotorua is the ONLY location in New Zealand where you can experience this amazingly fun and bizarre bucket list activity.

With an epic 2 ride flexi pass you’ll find out why the ZORB is an iconic New Zealand experience with a ride down the Straight Track (a straight 250 metre direct and high speed journey down the hill) and the Sidewinder Track (Claimed to be the twistiest Zorb track ever built and at 350 metres long thats a lot of twists!)

Why is this Chuffed Worthy?

Two very contrasting activities and that’s why we love this combo so much. We recommend hitting Zorb first – try not to laugh and once the adreneline and laughter passes you’ll be ready for a visit across the city for a relaxing soak amongst the forest!
