Quad Bike Riding and Safety

Training and Safety Protocol:

To ensure everyone's safety, we offer training at the beginning of your quad bike experience. If you're unable to demonstrate safe riding or cannot communicate with our guides during the training in plain English, for your safety and the safety of others, we won't allow you to participate in the quad bike activity.

Alternative Options:

If you can't ride the quad bike safely, you have two options:

  • Partial Refund: We'll provide a refund of $50 for your quad bike activity and will return you to the Queenstown CBD. 

  • Buggy Ride (driven by our guide): You can join the tour in our safer buggy option for no additional charge. Note our guide(s) will drive the buggy. 

Credit Card Policy:

To cover potential damage to equipment in case of an accident, we require a credit card from all participants before the activity. This is to take a security deposit in the incident of an accident.
