Two of New Zealand's iconic global brands have signaled their imminent arrival at SkyCity Auckland with the unveiling of a giant mural bringing the two new experiences to life. 

Visitors to the SkyCity Auckland precinct will be welcomed off Federal Street with an amazing giant mural, which is a collaboration between Weta Workshop Unleashed and the All Blacks Experience.

The mural brings together the two new experiences in one image, with rugby players competing in an epic contest with mythical creatures. Designed by Weta Workshop artist Ken Samonte, the image incorporates a variety of characters on the rugby team, showcasing the vast communities that rugby creates in New Zealand. The mythical creatures are a mix of classic fantasy themes and ambiguous designs all intended to expand your imagination.
