Weta Workshop’s fantastical experience Weta Workshop Unleashed will open in Auckland next month, promising locals and visitors alike a journey through the creative process with surprises around every corner.
The new, immersive visitor attraction will be part of SkyCity’s evolving Federal Street entertainment precinct and will be open to the public starting Tuesday December 15.
Inside Weta Workshop Unleashed, fantastical worlds come to life with resident creatures, one hyper realistic giant and a galactic robot.
Weta Workshop Unleashed takes inspiration from its namesake, Weta Workshop. For over 25 years the Workshop has applied its craftsmanship to blockbuster films including The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies, Avatar, Blade Runner 2049, and most recently, Mulan. This Academy Award®- winning design and physical effects facility is also an international tourist destination, producer of consumer products, and creator of immersive location-based experiences.
Weta Workshop Unleashed will complement Weta Workshop’s existing Wellington-based movie effects tours and experiences by showcasing their skills as conceptual designers and storytellers in a brand-new way.
“We are excited to be working on an Auckland-based attraction that will showcase our capabilities to even more New Zealanders and, in coming years, to international tourists,” says Weta Workshop’s Head of Tourism, Jake Downing.
Over the past four years, Weta Workshop’s location-based experience division has enjoyed steady growth and critical acclaim in the industry, most notably for their creative collaborations with Te Papa. The record-breaking Gallipoli: The scale of our war, which has exhibited in the capital since 2015, won a Thea Award for Outstanding Achievement—an accolade that recognises the very best themed entertainment and design projects, worldwide.
Opening just in time for the Christmas holidays, fans can now secure tickets to Weta Workshop Unleashed at www.wetaworkshopunleashed.com
