If you’re looking for new thrill and adventures in New Zealand, there are many things that you can add to your bucket list!
There are many clichéd tropes, you can opt for in Auckland to enjoy some unusual activities out there.
I have rounded up the top 6 unique date ideas to make your trip a memorable experience.
1. Spend Some Time at Spookers
If you’re faint-hearted this is not the experience you should think of. Spookers is New Zealand’s only haunted theme park, located in a former Kingseat Hospital grounds. You would be taken to the theatrically themed haunted houses and outdoor spaces where you’ll have to flee from the most fearsome of creatures.
2. Snorkel with the marine life at Goat Island
As a couple, a day trip to Goat Island is a good option. Situated in Leigh, which is over an hour’s drive north of Auckland City, this is one of the best places to watch the aquatic critters from close quarters. You can hire some snorkels and a wetsuit or can also opt for an all-inclusive tour of the marine reserve.
3. Taste dessert at Milse
If you are fond of something sugary and refined, Auckland has an incredible range of gourmet dessert offerings – and Milse’s multi-course tasting menu. Pick your favorite a la carte flavor and, if you’re feeling extra hungry, can also add with a wine match to your sweet sensory experience.
4. Spend the evening laughing at The Classic
The Classic, situated on Queen Street, has been the Auckland’s comedy scene for 20 years. They keep organizing events with a range of local and international talent, from up-and-coming comedic stars to seasoned veterans. Do not forget to visit The Classic on Mondays for their Open Mic nights. You can also watch some late-night classic laughs on Fridays and Saturdays.
5. Skate at Paradice
The Ice Skating rinks are an epic attraction for travelers especially couples. Skating sessions are driven by colorful lighting effects and music, and the premises in Botany even has its laser tag room. It is another fun activity to enjoy after spending a few hours gliding on the icy surfaces.
6. Have a picnic at Wenderholm Regional Park
Auckland has a range of parks and gardens to explore. Wenderholm Regional Park is the most scenic option to select. Situated at the opening of the picturesque Puhoi River some 48 kilometers (29.8 miles) from Auckland CBD, you can reach here easily via a bus from town. It’s a quiet forested wonderland with an interesting coastline. It all makes this a fantastic place to unwind and enjoy the coolest outdoors.
These are some select places and things to do which is often unusual also in Auckland if you are accompanied by your spouse or partner.
