I'm sure other reviewers have explained what Weta cave is, but briefly a workshop where a wide variety of film models are made, perhaps most notably those for Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit.
LOTR and the Hobbit are not my thing in a big way but I enjoyed the LOTR films. We took the tour of the workshop and this was very interesting. Led by one of the guys who works there on practically all of the models ever produced, he was very knowledgeable of all the manufacturing and finishing details and had a few amusing anecdotes along the way. If you have never experienced the work and detail that goes into film models then this walk is very enlightening and educational.
