Love this place
Nov 2020 • Family
It's so unique and one of it's own kind of place to visit. Ideally we would recommend 2 to 3hours to make most of your exploration and anyone would love it. Great restoration. Passion for photography, welcome to your paradise...

This place...is awesome! Terrifying, spectacular, surreal and inspirational; just a few words I could use to describe this place, but they're not enough. Just go and see it for yourself!

Not sure I would recommend this weird place - certainly it wasn't for me. Lots of old tat that has seen better days gathering dust and cobwebs. Didn't feel that safe standing on some of the dodgy floors either, like they could give way any time. Just a bit yuck but hey, its free (or almost - donation box) Make of it what you will!

Would have liked to visit but couldn;t
Dec 2019
We had heard great things about this place and decided to take our grandchildren, who were visiting Invercargill for a few days. Checked online and the info said it was open. Tried the phone number - no reply. Drove the 5 minutes our house to Demolition World and found it was closed. Drove home again. Checked the website and the info said it was open. Grrr. Kids were great about it and enjoyed our trip to fantastic Queens Park instead.

Thoughtfully curated spooky trail
Oct 2019
This is a labour of love. It is free for those to wander around the ghost-town, a collection of items found and abandoned across the South Island's demolition sites. It's both funny and creepy.

Really enjoyable visit
Oct 2019 • Couples
We visited demolition world today not really knowing what to expect and we're absolutely blown away by it. Really interesting and fascinating setup, fun to look around and enjoy the history of the place. Plenty of chickens hiding out too to keep you on your toes! Really fun and would recommend it to anyone!

Amazing - hidden gem of Invercargill
Sep 2019 • Family
Visited here with the teens yesterday. Teen 1 wasn’t keen until we walked in, then... boom! We all had an awesome time wandering around this quirky, whacky, crazy, amazing, cool place. Never seen anything like it. One of the highlights of our NZ trip so far.

Surreal trip down memory lane(s)
May 2019 • Friends
Had no idea this existed - thanks Trip Advisor! - then realised looking around the reception that I recognised one of the owners from TV (Demolition NZ on Prime TV). This place is the most amazing and bizarre collection of old buildings and paraphernalia from the past - anything and everything you could imagine, often juxta-posed in unlikely and funny situations. I love the owners' sense of humour! Very cool and different - go with an open mind and prepare to be amazed.

Awesome! Must do!
Apr 2019 • Family
This is a definite visit for those of you who like memorabilia and being taken back in time. It is great tot explore, and has heaps for all ages to get interested in. A highly underrated attraction, that only asks for a donation, that should be on everyones to do list! There are heaps of chickens, geese, peacocks roaming free, and super friendly and tame. Also a photographers paradise!
