... our activities all booked we headed to Pub on Wharf for a drink and some nachos. After filling up we decided to head back to camp to regroup, set up, have a rest and get ready to head back into town for the night time. On our way back we came across an attraction called 'Fear Factory', claiming to be New Zealand's Scariest Haunted House located right in the centre of town.

After being given our waterproofs we were ...
... The Big Al. I can see why there is so much hype about a burger joint, they were amazing and great value! An hour or two after our burgers we were on a bus to the Shotover River to go jet boating. That was fun. I really enjoyed it, the boat reached 90kmph many times and we did so many 360' spins I lost count. The water was very cold though and Teresa got splashed in the face every few seconds so perhaps didnt enjoy it as much... We went out again ...
