Strap on a pair of VR goggles, meet an outrageous local guide, and get ready to be immersed in WellTown where New Zealand’s capital is transformed into the world’s first virtual city that you can explore and play as a game.
WellTown injects the player directly into the bloodstream of New Zealand’s creative heart via the magic of virtual reality. The game was created exclusively in Wellington by creative agency Wrestler and a team of award-winning experts.
The six WellTown experiences let you fire coffee shots at caffeine deprived morning zombies, have a peaceful underwater experience in Wellington’s pristine harbour and interact with native birdlife during a Wellington dawn chorus, get active alongside thrill-seekers taking a jump from Wellington’s waterfront diving platform, stargazing under the Matariki night sky, and be the drummer of local band Orchestra of Spheres as they busk on Cuba Street.
Find out about two of New Zealand’s best tertiary institutions in Victoria University of Wellington and Te Auaha NZ Institute of Creativity, stand next to the All Blacks as they sing the national anthem at Westpac Stadium, get up close with New Zealand’s founding document the Treaty of Waitangi, visit Xero’s funky Wellington-based global headquarters, experience a slice of movie-making magic on a Weta Studio Tour and get a serious dose of Kiwi culture at Te Papa Tongarewa, New Zealand’s national museum.
The only way to get a better Wellington experience is to come here in actual reality.
