A Magical Giant Snow Dome Is Coming To Auckland!

Do you wanna build a snowman? Of course you do! Auckland, all of your childhood dreams are set to come true next month because we’re getting an adult-sized snow dome!

Yep, while it’s bloody cold, the City of Sails tends to miss out on the mystery and magic of snow. This year, SKYCITY’s atrium is set to transform into a winter wonderland unlike anything we’ve seen before. There will be ballet dancers and singers and—best of all—there will be a whopping seven-metre snow dome.

This enchanting experience will see you step inside to magical lighting, park benches, trees, and of course, snow! It’ll be like a real-life fairytale, with all the beauty you could hope for. And, the two snow machines will be blowing white powder so you’ll literally feel as though you’re floating around a snow globe! Snow much fun!

You’ll only be able to spend a maximum of fifteen minutes inside but thankfully you’ll be able to treasure the memory forever by getting snapped in the photo booth. Do it for the ‘gram!

Outside of the globe, there will be plenty of action, too. Ballet dancers will be...well...dancing, a classical pianist will perform every Friday and Saturday night from 5 pm to 8 pm and there’s even an ice sculptor creating masterpieces every Friday evening from 6th - 27th July.

We can’t wait!
