Get spooked at a haunted attraction

Spookers is New Zealand's scariest horror attraction. It is a live entertainment experience in which victims (you!) move through themed sets with live scare actors, visuals and sound effects designed to frighten you. Furthermore, it is housed in an old mental asylum, giving the fear a slightly more authentic feel. This is an adventure with a difference but trust us when we say, it is a serious adrenaline rush. 

Get up close to marine life

Take an underwater journey through the famous Kelly Tarlton's SEA LIFE Aquarium and discover a diverse collection of aquatic life up close. For the adventurous types, there is a thrilling Shark Adventure to try, where a cage is submerged in the predator tank, so you are guaranteed to have a close encounter of the shark kind. Through the cage's clear perspex bottom, you can marvel at one of the most feared predators of the deep!
