Weta's Thunderbirds 'Are Go'
Wellington’s Weta Workshop’s new Thunderbirds Are Go Behind-the-Scenes Experience has wide appeal for international visitors hungry for immersive film-making experience in Wellington.
“This interactive experience is something we’ve never offered before and builds on our hugely popular Weta Cave Workshop Tour,” says Jake Downing, Weta’s Head of Tourism.
“Guests will discover the genuine Weta Workshop props, models and miniatures behind the popular TV series, from Tracy Island and the Thunderbird hangars to Creighton Ward manor.
“With season 1 and 2 now airing in many global markets including Japan and the UK and billed to air in the US, TRENZ 2016 will help us generate more awareness and interest in the various tourism experiences we offer on Wellington’s Miramar Peninsula and help grow our visitor numbers.”
“My life-long fascination with model making and practical film effects was born of shows like the Thunderbirds, so it has been terrific to have been involved in the design and manufacture of what you’ll see inside.” – Richard Taylor, CEO and Co-founder, Weta Workshop.
