Looking for exciting things to do in Auckland? Look no further than Wētā Workshop Unleashed – one of the city’s premier Auckland attractions. Our wildly immersive experience takes you on a journey through the wacky world of movie making. It’s a mind-bending 90-minute hosted tour centred on three fully developed and original film concepts: a nail-biting horror, a fantasy epic, and a mind-bending sci-fi
It’s your chance to get up-close and hands-on with enchanting environments, resident creatures, hyper-realistic giants, a galactic robot, and much more.
The Animatronics and Prosthetics department is working on the horror film Fauna. Walk through the workshop and see this 1980’s style horror movie in the making, filled with details on how our ideas are being developed for the film. Visitors who dare may enter the claustrophobic horror film set, where something lingers in the shadows
Enter our very own Artists’ Shed, a peaceful haven that shows the process of fantasy world-building through the imaginations of concept artists, who dream up a world designed for the epic movie Age of the Ever-Clan. Step through the curtain and enter their fantastical world.
It’s time to walk onto a film set of the science fiction adventure movie Origins. Projected light plays across the stage and a stunning light display with an epic intergalactic soundtrack begins. A gigantic robot and epic spaceship immerse you in an atmospheric sci-fi wonder.
Wētā Workshop Unleashed is all about creating magical moments to capture with the camera lens, and we’re delighted to launch a brand-new content opportunity that makes you, our guests, the stars of the show. Your personalised images will be captured during your experience and featured on Unleashed-themed artwork, posters, and reels of your choice.
After leaving our tour space bursting at the seams with creativity, visit our experienced technicians who run a series of Artist Workshops. Learn the skills used by our own Wētā Workshop crew – our workshops feature the themes of horror, fantasy and sci-fi and give you the opportunity to unleash your creative lunacy upon the world.
