Custard & the Film Studio

FILM STUDIO

Whoa! Studios is a state of the art film studio specialising in live action, puppetry and miniatures. We are the only film studio in New Zealand to open our doors to kids and families.

Our flagship offering is an original, world class, live show based on the characters and sets of Custard’s World, adapted for stage from a script by Bob Baker, BAFTA award winning screenwriter of Wallace & Gromit. A truly immersive experience, featuring a mix of puppets, digital effects, and live action all from within our main stage movie set.

Children's Park

PARK

The Whoa! Studios urban park will make a great visit even better. Our design team searched the world for inspiration about the best play ideas. We are proud to offer the only hand crafted crochet climbing net in NZ, that took Japanese artist Toshiko Horiuchi Macadam two years to craft.

Our Whoa! Zone adventure playground is a custom designed playground, crafted by our very own set designers and builders. Could this be one of the top 10 urban playgrounds in the world?
Come and see.
