Fantabulous

We had an awesome time. We went as a group of 6 ages ranging from 40-6 and I must say everyone enjoyed their experience. The two younger girls didn’t want it to end. Loved all the interaction and hands on things we got to explore. Thank you to our amazing tour guide Hannah banana 🍌 you were great and kept the kids interested. Thank you again for the awesome experience we highly recommend this to all you artistic people out there (which is everyone in their own way ☺️) Re photos: I don’t wanna give too much away 😜

Afternoon visit

Made easy by close parking at Skycity and well sign posted. The tour started promptly and our guide was informative, enthusiastic and passionate. We were transported to a fantasy world Great opportunities for taking photos and interactive stations were easily accessible due to the small numbers in group sizes. Highly recommended for most ages but would be reluctant to take children under 10
