Wedding Activities

Claybird Shooting
Get your party started with a bang!
Surprise and challenge your guests with something totally different and let the competitiveness shine through, seeing who is the straight shooter of the group in this fun activity everyone will enjoy.
If you’re an experienced enthusiast or a first-timer…we’re sure this will blow you away!

Ridge Golf
Go on, give it a shot! Not quite Happy Gilmour but give it your best swing. Entertain your guests with this fun activity. Tee off from the Lodge lawn – this experience is like no other. Embrace this one of a kind hole in one at altitude, with attitude. Challenge yourselves with:
• Nearest to the pin
• Hole in one
• Longest putt

Aim and Fire! Get competitive and challenge your guests to hitting a bullseye!
Archery is a sport, involving shooting arrows from a bow. Easy eh? No!
Just shooting arrows is, relatively, easy; it’s hitting the target, repeatedly and accurately that is difficult!

Lawn Games
For the light hearted, enjoy our array of fun and interactive lawn games while enjoying each others company with a drink in hand and canapes at the ready. 
From giant jenga to croquet, petanque, kubb and sandbag throwing there really is an option for everyone to participate and let their hair down.

Harbour Cruise
Ahoy there matey! Treat yourselves to a 3-hour cruise aboard the Eagle Ridge luxury motor yacht (54’ launch) for a harbor cruise, park up for a swim on Matakana Coast or Pilot Bay and enjoy a picnic on the beach. This tour can be made longer by arrangement. On board activities include kayaking, paddle boarding, skiing, tubing or fishing.

Adventure Heli-Flight
Be like the eagle and soar! Add the extra WOW factor to your event and give your guests something to remember. Treat them to a bird’s eye view of Eagle Ridge, the surrounding countryside and where land meets sea. This includes seven flights, for up to five people per flight (approx. 35 guests) for a short but exhilarating 3-minute scenic flight departing from the Eagle Ridge helipad.


Fighter Jet Experience
Step it up and provide your top achievers, valued customers or thrill seekers with this unique, once in a lifetime full fighter jet experience. You will not find this anywhere else in New Zealand! This experience takes two hours, including an extensive briefing, an opportunity to explore the jet, take photographs and then brace yourself for a 20 – 30-minute ride of your life!
