Great experience. The stardome screen is above you and the chairs are slightly tilted back to allow for maximum immersion into the screening. The guide was very insightful and the audio and visual systems being used were of great quality. Highly recommend.
Not enough parking space for everyone, was told I had to park across the field which isn't a massive walking distance but had to make two left turns to get there. In the light show, you can get a sore neck if you don't grab a seat near the back. A cool little novelty shop inside and the exhibitions on display are pretty cool and interactive. Definitely something you should check out in Auckland, they have different shows for different times of the year.
Definitely 5+ stars to Stardome! They GENEROUSLY supported our big school event which made a huge difference on the day! Highly Recommend!!!!!!!!
Just visited with my daughters. We all just loved the place. Will see all the shows very shortly. Not worth missing any single one.
Great location for functions but could've a nice dance floor
