Another New Oamaru Attraction Opens

jg-20170531-Canon EOS 5D Mark IV-9616.JPGIt seems that the list of things to do in Oamaru is getting longer and longer by the minute! Today, just in time for the annual Oamaru Fire & Steam Festival that starts on Friday, 2 June, and the NZ Steampunk Festival that takes place all weekend, a new attraction has opened in a small space on Tyne Street in the Historic Precinct. Called Dr. Kano’s Fantastic Flight, it is the brainchild of Don Patterson, a renowned Oamaru-based artist who is also responsible for the restoration of the Oamaru Railway Station and its Prehistoric World exhibits. But whereas the Prehistoric World takes a look into the distant past, it could be argued that Dr. Kano’s Fantastic Flight is a glimpse instead into the future. It would be a shame to reveal too much of what to expect from a visit here, so suffice it to say that the experience lasts around 15 minutes and is unlike anything else that I have seen in Oamaru or beyond, and it’s a relatively inexpensive $15 per adult.
