The Wai-o-Tapu Thermal Wonderland is the best geothermal park I visited while touring the North Island. It has the most spectacular and impressive displays of geothermal activity.
There's a geysir that they seed to go off in the morning each day. Once it goes off, it's like a broken faucet that doesn't stop. It's unimpressive if you've seen natural geysirs letting off pressure periodically.
There are several paths you can take. It's a moderately strenuous hike, so people used to walking a couple of miles shouldn't have a problem. Although most of the path is flat or gently sloping, there are parts with stairs.
