When we are in New Zealand, we mostly, at some point, drive through Taupo: it is on the way, there is family, it is beautiful and there is plenty to do. This time we were about to hit there on a rainy day but to my delight there would have been a few good options to break up our drive anyway:
- McDonalds. I’m not usually the one for McDonalds unless I need wifi (honestly; not tasty, not healthy, loud and no pleasant atmosphere. In my opinion. Kids of course like their fries or Happy Meals) But in Taupo THERE IS A REAL AIRPLANE!!! Kids can play under it in the play area, eat in it and look at the cockpit through a glas.
2. Huka Honey Hive A quote from the link: “A unique taste experience with free honey, mead & liqueur tastings. View live beehives, discover health & wellness products and divine honey-based skincare. Treat yourself to a delicious honey ice-cream. Free Entry.”
3. Mind Junction, games for all ages. Cost depends on what you do.
We didn’t get to try #2 nor #3 as the sun came out but there will be a next time. Let me know if you’ve been to either of these, how was it?
