Playing at Darkride
Billed as a family-friendly entertainment centre, Darkride is an interactive motion theatre that’s a great place to spend an afternoon. The main attraction is the world's first 6D game, a multi-sensory shooter with surround sound, rounded screen and multiple adventures. Battle with bandits or zombies, keep tally of your score against friends and enjoy the world's fastest targeting system.
You can also experience New Zealand's first individually seated film-ride simulator. Feel your chair move, shake and jump as you follow the action on screen in a fun and exciting experience.
Explore the Odyssey Sensory Maze
Odyssey Sensory Maze can amaze from the time you enter through the surreal white tunnel to the moment you reach the outside world again. Inside the maze, you can find a number of different rooms to explore. As there's no time limit, you're free to take your time in each one.
Each room in the Odyssey Sensory Maze transports you into another world. The images, smells, sounds and illusions you experience conjure somewhere vastly different to Queenstown. Rooms are changed frequently, so you can make return visits each time you're in the area without getting bored.
