Discover the monsters and mysteries of the deep at Kelly Tarlton's these Easter Holidays!

Long ago, beneath the seas, stories tell of wondrous places like the lost city of Atlantis and fearsome, man-eating beasts. Closer to home the legends continue – from our very own watery monster the Taniwha to how the North and South Island came to be. Now you can discover the truth behind these fishy tales when you visit Myths from the Abyss at Kelly Tarlton’s during the Easter School holidays.

Kids can uncover the mysteries and monsters of the deep and take part in the Guardians of Atlantis Treasure Hunt where they must crack riddles to discover keys that will unlock the mythical city’s gates and get them in draw to win great LEGO prizes. They can huddle up and hear amazing myths from the abyss, including some of New Zealand’s most beloved watery legends such as Maui’s Fish and the Whale Rider, during hourly storytelling sessions every day in the NIWA room.

Lots of fantastic spot prizes are up for grabs during the hourly Tower Building competitions in the special LEGO Zone, where kids will also be able to build their own creations and show off their artistic flair with cool activities like shark origami, drawing lessons and a Taniwha drawing competition (where even more LEGO prizes are on offer).

In the Aqua Cinema they can check out The Adventures of Clutch Powers – the first ever full-length animated LEGO movie. Once they’ve had their fill of mythical beasts its off to say hi to all their favourite Kelly Tarlton’s creatures including King Penguin chicks which can be seen from the Snowcat ride, Phoebe the massive ray in Stingray Bay and the hungry sharks in Kelly’s predator tank. Plus as a special Easter gift, the first 5,000 paying children through the doors will receive a free LEGO sample pack*.
