Stay warm and dry with these ideas

Create your own jewellery

With beads of all shapes, sizes and colours it is easy to make a souvenir at Village Beads. Walk in, have a play with a design or re-vamp old jewellery into something fresh. If making something isn't for you, check out the plethora of items onsite or try some of the homemade fudge. 


Enjoy a treat while the kids play

Eat at Benedict’s Cafe where the kids can play in the lighthouse play area and see if you can find the resident lizard. Or for something different travel the world in 800 metres and pick one of 60 eateries along Jackson Street, Petone.


Entertainment is guaranteed

Up for a whole day of entertainment? Strike Entertainment is the place for you to go. With their fast paced Lazer Tag course you'll be able to live all your shoot-em-up video game dreams in a space themed maze. Numerous lanes mean there is room for everyone to play 10-pin bowling. The popular passtime is suitable for anyone with a selection of bowling aids available.


Watch the latest movies on the big screen

Cosy up at Lighthouse Cinema with the latest blockbuster or catch a festival flick. The onsite cafe is a fantastic spot for a coffee and cake and the boutique cinema is comfortable and inviting. Sit back, relax and unwind.


Indoor adventure playgrounds

Laughalots Playland is a huge indoor playground with enough activities to keep your younger ones entertained for hours. Kids can go wild at Junglerama with an indoor jungle-themed playground making it a great wet weather option for yelling and burning off energy.
