Perfect your swing

Fill a bucket with some golf balls and see how far you can whack it at Silverstream Golf Park or the Golf Warehouse. With covered bays and lighting, this option is available no matter the weather - or for an after work stress-reliever.

Rev your engine

With state of the art go-karts your racing experience will be exhilarating at Daytona. The indoor track is over 300m long and has a perfect width for passing. The first half of the track is fast, while the second half is technically challenging, making it great for the whole family.

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 pastime 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 or find out how high you can bounce at Jumperama indoor trampoline park - making these a great wet weather option for yelling and burning off energy.

Let the good times roll

Strap on some skates at Frosty Spot indoor ice skating. Grab a Seal to help you find your balance and you'll be gliding around like a pro in no time. If you're looking for something warmer, and for a bit of a boogie, Upper Hutt roller skating club is for you. Roller Disco's are on during school holidays - go on, you know you want to!

Books for rainy day
12 Libraries on offer

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.

Curl up with a good book

Sometimes there isn't anything better to do on a rainy day than read a good book. Check-out a novel from one of the 12 libraries across both Upper Hutt and Lower Hutt and head to a cosy cafe or park up on Petone Foreshore to watch the weather roll in.
