The Whoa! Studios Urban Playground is truly a one of its kind in New Zealand.
Lovingly crafted and beautifully finished, the Urban Playground will be a delight to children of all ages. Featuring movie set quality attractions such as the Rocket Ship and Mission Control, the Dragons Castle and the Pirates Cove. We are proud to offer the Whoa! Web, New Zealand’s only crochet play net with its unique adventure play that will delight and exercise your kids.
CHILD SHOW GOERS RECEIVE COMPLIMENTARY PARK ACCESS (on the same day) WITH THEIR SHOW TICKET.
THE WHOA! WEB
Prepare to be amazed with New Zealand’s only example of the world renowned crochet play net by Japanese artist Toshiko Horiuchi Macadam. Hand crafted over two years using 70 kilometres of coloured nylon and stretched from a 12 meter high shaded structure, your kids will weave their way through the layers to reach the upper net before finding their way out again. The Whoa! Web is a wonder of creative play and artwork all in one. Only at Whoa! Studios.
THE WHOA! ZONE
Whoa! Studios is proud to present our Whoa! Zone playground. Custom designed and built by our talented team of set designers and builders, every detail has been crafted for imaginative play experiences. Blast off in the six metre tall rocket ship, navigate the launch from mission control, explore the castle before speeding down the slide, and cross the seven seas in search of treasure on the pirate ship. Let your kids imagination run riot only at the Whoa! Zone adventure playground.
