CROCHET NET

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.

MISSION CONTROL ROCKET

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.

WHOA! PERFORMING ARTS TRUST

LIVE THEATRE – FUN FAMILY BONDING!

Make a full day of it at Whoa! Studios by enjoying some quality time with the kids by enjoying the magic that only Live Theatre can offer.  

Did you know that attending theatre with children can help them to grow their emotional intelligence? Research has shown that not only do 90% of children talk about the themes and experience of the shows they’ve seen months afterward, but they also get really excited about going to the next one too!

So if you haven’t already been out to a Whoa! Show, come and enjoy the bonding it will provide your family and set your kids up for a lifetime of enjoying Theatre!

Plus Park Play is Free for child show ticket holders on the same day.
