Interactive and fascinating. So much to see and play with here. Imagination and creativity at work. We loved and had to revisit the portal.

On wandering around Oamaru we came across the Steampunk HQ. It was well set up and definitely worth a visit.

Really interested to read all of the positive reviews, as we found this place really underwhelming. It’s very small (only takes about 15 minutes to look around with small children), hardly interactive and a lot of stuff is quite scary (particularly in the first room). The light room is cool, but they have those at a few places in Australia, so wasn’t anything new. I wouldn’t recommend, but then again, lots of people have seemed to enjoy it, so each to their own!

We spent maybe half an hour here. It's very small, but very interesting. We really enjoyed the mirror room light show.

Absolutely amazing place, my husband recons it’s a play ground for men, lots to look at, and even try out.
Great place to have a look around and we loved the dress up area and all the merchandise
Just amazing
