Default I need some help please

Hi, I'm Dave and this is my first time here. There's so many messages it's hard to know where to start.
I'm into extreme sports and it's been my dream to emigrate to NZ for a long time. I've looked at the immigration website and I think I qualify but I'm going to delay a bit till I've visited. Is there anywhere you'd recommend for Zorbing & Blowing other than Q'stown?

Nice one
Dave

Hi Dave

WELCOME too. Rotorua and the Bay of Plenty has heaps to do. We have a Zorb. Havea look at www.agrodome.co.nz and you'll see all they have to offer. Taupo also has river jetboats - they take you up to the beautiful Huka Falls, and there is also Bungy etc there too.

Hope this helps - look forward to seeing you in other threads.

Is 'blowing' the one where there is a huge fan and you sort of fly (like a freefall skydiver) in the updraught?? Or is it that odd toy football game with straws and a pithball?

Regards

Blowing is so cool and it's new - basically it's like bungee but with a power pack on your back for extra speed - Awesome!

You realy should try it mind blowing - hence the name! You have special goggles to keep your eyes in place & most people are sick and can't stand up right for about an hour. Wicked!

I'll give it a miss too, although I do occasionally like a dose of white knuckle. Dying to give zorbing a go though. I'll put it on the list of one of the things to do before I'm 40. Good to see you Pinkie.
