We went for a Santa trip yesterday, the photographer took a few photos with Santa and as part of our entry ticket we supposed to get a family photo. During checkout the girl only gave us the worst photo and when I asked about the other photos, she asked for $15 additional to get the other photos. I think if... More

Hi Justintanks, Thanks for your feedback. This is definitely not the experience we wanted you to have for your first trip to Snowplanet. In previous years we had allowed customers to choose their photo, however this caused very long wait times for photo collection due to the amount of time it would take for a family to choose a photo...

I'm very sorry to say that when I took my kids to night-rider last night, the girl operating the lift was so rude to my daughter that my daughter was crying when we left!

We are frequent snowboarders, our visit to Auckland was going to be the first trip we haven't snowboarded since 2012. I saw Snow Planet as a Facebook ad as we were preparing to leave and decided we were going. I didn't really know what to expect... indoor snowboarding? First off, it was cold - they said it was -5 but... More

Not too impressed really, it was my first time going (20/11/16). Got to the counter and the girl was really nice. Walked over to get my equipment and as this was my first time, I asked the gentlemen "what's easier? skiiing or snowboarding?" he replies "they're both hard". Not too happy about this, as it didn't make me feel comfortable,... More

I've driven past snowplanet for years, Not really paying it too much attention. I now think it is a great asset to Auckland. Absolutely great for kids (and adults quite frankly) to learn to ski: it's a short 30 min drive from downtown and very importantly, you can guarantee that you will get to ski.

Bought an annual pass only because the instructor told me the snowboard course is going ahead but they cancelled it only couple of hours before it was due to start. Unreliable. Also the staff manning the platter when I visit was inattentive and busy chatting, because of that quite a few kids fell and the lift had to be stopped.... More

Hi divermel, Thanks for your feedback regarding your experience at Snowplanet.

If your lesson was cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances I do apologise this is not normal protocol and will endeavour to ensure it does not happen again.... More
