Weta Cave/Workshop in Miramar, Wellington has had a facelift. Now, the visitor walks through a Hobbit hole entrance. I often power walk past the building and there seems to be more and more visitors by the day. Buses, cars, tourists.... Such a busy little empire.
I have read some reviews of the Weta Cave where the reviewer is totally upset. I have a feeling some people expect Weta to be like a Universal Studios Theme Park. The cave is a shop selling Weta film models and stuff, there's a little movie detailing Weta successes, and a year ago a Workshop tour started up..
Bus No 2 from the city will drop a visitor off prettymuch near the workshop.
