Whomever your lucky partner for the evening may be, take them on an unforgettable journey through Wētā Workshop Unleashed. 

Their special 60-minute Date Night Tour is a love story for couples who crave whimsy and wonder, located in the heart of Auckland City. Hold hands in mystical landscapes, strike a pose with hyper-realistic giants, and capture the magic that only Wētā Workshop Unleashed can deliver! … How else do you expect to impress your crush this Valentines season?

Wētā Workshop Unleashed is a fantastical realm created by the Oscar-winning artisans of Wētā Workshop. Built upon three fully realized and completely original film concepts, you are invited to discover the wonder of filmmaking firsthand.

Hosted by enthusiastic guides, you will be led through a fantastical version of our movie making workshop.

Begin with the spine-chilling horror of "Fauna," as the animatronics and prosthetics department conjures an unsettling presence lurking in the shadows.

Traverse into the realm of fantasy at the Artists’ Shed, a serene haven showcasing the intricate process of world-building for the epic movie "Age of the Ever-Clan." Pass through the curtain into a fantastical world imagined by concept artists.

Conclude your journey with the cosmic allure of "Origins," a science fiction adventure set amidst a film stage adorned with an epic intergalactic soundtrack, a gigantic robot, and an awe-inspiring spaceship.


$2 per hour to a max of $12 on weekends and a $12 flat rate for weekday evenings at The Civic car park. Find out more
