Finding new and exciting things to do in the holidays can sometimes be a bit tough. But these holidays we found something really special, right here in Miramar: Weta Workshops Thunderbirds Are GO Behind-the-scenes experience.

Weta Workshops Thunderbirds Are GO Behind-the-scenes experience is a really great thing to do with big and little kids. Our family of five all totally loved it.

A short bus ride from the Weta Cave (passing by our own house on the way) took us to a large garage in Miramar where a whole pile of fabulous Thunderbirds are Go props, sets, and more are set out.

The shuttle bus dropped us at at an inconspicous door on the side of the large unmarked Weta building. We were greeted by an ethusiastic and knowledgable tour guide who took us through the exhibition.

I was a Thunderbirds fan as a child. It is probably one of the most memorable shows I watched as a child. I was enthralled by the sets, and it was fascinating to learn about how they film their modern version of Thurnderbirds.

I would totally recommend this as something to do with your kids.
