Hey Darrin

Not a dumb question at all :)

There are a few ways but the easiest is to:

Head up Spa Road in Taupo towards AC Baths....keep going (you will go round a tight corner) and take a left just after some forestry place. Then take the second right (it may seem weird cause you will be in an industrial area). Follow that road till you come to the Equestrian centre and turn right - follow the signs to Rapid Jet then turn right at Rapid Jet and keep going to the end of the Gravel road...ta daa! play time :)

See you there...
