Overview

Jump onboard our Weta Workshop tour for a behind the scenes look at the world-leading design and effects studio. It’s here where movie magic was made for the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movies. During your tour, Weta crew members will show you the impressive props and models they’ve created from films like The Lord of the Rings, Avatar and District 9.

You’ll see artists and technicians at work on the tour stage and if you’re really lucky, you’ll catch a glimpse of them working through windows that look directly into the Workshop! You’ll also watch a special film featuring behind-the-scenes secrets and exclusive interviews.

Before leaving, you’ll have the chance to take some photos with full-sized film sculptures and visit the Weta Cave shop with its massive range of unique collectibles and movie merchandise. This tour lasts 2.5 hours from start to finish and runs four times per day. Select your preferred time from the drop-down box.
