Excellent facility with helpful, friendly staff. We started our tour in their Antarctic all terrain vehicle over a track. We enjoyed the hands on meeting with husky dogs, the penquin feeding and info session, the snow storm room and the many exhibits. Enjoyed a nice lunch in cafe. This day was wonderful highlight of our first trip to New Zealand!

Was a distance away from the city centre but easy to get to using the no.8 bus from the interchange and at $4 A ticket was a bargain. You can also reuse the bus ticket if used within 2hrs. The activities inside were good and informative, the Haagland ride was fun but not suitable for children under 1.2mtrs. We really enjoyed the experience.

I could only book 9 a.m. as the visiting time, had to leave early on public transport (bus 8 to the airport) and was there before the center opened. Alone! Otherwise everything was great - definitely tiring for the 3 huskies. An audio guide would also help because my partner doesn't speak English. All in all, highly recommended!

Excellent day out, we were visiting from the UK and found the centre to be extremely engaging and fun

The whole thing was excellent. Loved every minute of the experience
