Pirates to overrun Kelly Tarlton’s
Sail down to Kelly Tarlton’s these July holidays for salty tales and songs, treasure hunts, prizes and more!
Go hunting in the NIWA Interactive Room and along the treasure trail for the elusive treasure, discover interesting facts along the way, take the wheel of the pirate ship and interact with a life-sized, life-like Great White robotic shark head!
For the duration of the holidays, StarFish Magic will be putting on four shows full of stories and songs about pirates daily between 10.30am and 12.30pm. Plus take part in the colouring competi- tion and go in the draw to win great chocolate fish prizes!
One lucky treasurehunter will win a Maui Short Break and a family pass to discover the underground labyrinths of the famous Waitomo Glowworm, Ruakuri and Aranui Caves. And be sure to check out Kelly Tarlton’s favourites.
The Antarctic Encounter is an experience full of exciting opportunities to explore the wilds of the Antarctic - past, present and beyond. Living in this frozen habitat are playful colonies of king and gentoo penguins. There is no closer encounter with these magnificent birds.
Stingray Bay gives a tantalising glimpse of these magnificent animals with their two-metre wingspan and long barbed tails.
In the Underwater World travel deep beneath the ocean on a moving walkway. Through an acrylic tunnel you will experience a scuba diver’s view as a myriad of ocean life surrounds you. See giant stingrays glide overhead and moray eels lurking in the rocks, then come face to face with a pirate’s most feared predator - sharks - only centimeters away.
