Time Tripper

For Kids Attractions Museums and Galleries Indoor Activities
Time Tripper takes you back to the beginning on a journey through time and legend, where you can experience 90 million years in just 30 minutes!

Travel back to a time when dinosaurs roamed the earth, learn about how Lake Wakatipu was carved out by a giant glacier and experience the adventure activities you can do in Queenstown, all from the comfort of your seat.

Head down to the Main Town Pier to explore Queenstown before time.
