Visitor Reviews of Whakapapa

Simon from New Zealand writes:

Great day at Whakapapa Sunday 13th but once again often no staff to sort lift lines and when staff were there they stand there doing nothing as people get frustrated with line chaos. Never ever seen a senior staff member cruising around checking how things are running.
