Experience Wētā Workshop Unleashed at SkyCity in Auckland. A 90 minute movie-making tour where you explore interactive and immersive make-believe film sets, focusing on the worlds of horror, fantasy and 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.

Be Unleashed. Your 90-minute guided experience includes:

Part 1: Horror

The animatronics and prosthetics department are working on the horror film Fauna. Visitors who dare, may enter the claustrophobic horror film set, where something lingers in the shadows..

Part 2: Fantasy

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….

Part 3: Sci-fi

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.

The Weta Workshop Unleashed was an amazing experience for my family, young and old. I saw my child who usually doesn't care for anything really open up and even ask questions of our guide. To see everyone, even myself interact with all the amazing gadgets and the joy and excitement we all had was everything.

As promised Weta unleashed delivered an exciting immersive, interactive visit. We were in awe of the brilliant special effects and storytelling that kept us engrossed. Never going to be enough time to see it all on one session and we look forward to visiting again.
