Really quirky, fun activity that I would recommend if you strike a rainy day in Queenstown. It gets very busy so book online in advance. Takes about 20 minutes to walk through. Some rooms are pitch black and others like the mirror room are quite challenging and you may end up going around in circles a couple of times, so avoid this attraction if you suffer from claustrophobia or anxiety.
We had about 2 hours touring the castle and grounds and that was a bit tight, 3 hours would have been better. We didn't get the audio guide but in hindsight it would have been worthwhile, since nothing much was labelled, why not include that in the price of entry, like they do at MONA?
Fantastic experience. Instructor was helping in building my confidence and guiding me through the process. The feeling of flying in the sky the first time is priceless and memorable. Truly thankful.
