At registration, guests will be issued with WRIST BANDS which identify the events they have paid to attend.

This will allow our greeters / security to identify guests to admit to the event areas.

You must wear your wristband for the remainder of the event weekend.

If your wrist band breaks, please bring it to one of our event security team to assist you with a replacement.

Can I swim in the pool for the Friday evening 'Creatures of Atlantis' event?

For our 2022 event the pool will be for the use of approved Merfolk & Sea Creature guests only *

Regrettably, the organisers have had to make this decision based on a Health & Safety review and feedback, the risk of $10k fine for soiling the pool, and due to being unable to monitor the alcohol consumption by guests who may then wish to swim in the pool and risk drowning while intoxicated.

​If you wish to attend as a mermaid / mermen / sea creature Please email Rozanne to register your intention.

It is a requirement that you have already practiced swimming with the tail / in your costume and are a confident swimmer. 

We do require you to also abstain from the consumption of alcohol for the entire evening prior to entering the pool to swim.   

"Any persons entering the pool with a costume, make-up, body paints or accessories which disintegrate, loses parts i.e. glitter, gems, which colour runs or otherwise while in the pool, resulting in the need for the hotel to empty and/or deep clean the pool, may be liable for a cleaning fee of up to $10,000 * " 
* the cost of emptying, cleaning and refilling it

Can I bring my child with me?

This event is R18 

Sorry no children or teens under 18 years of age will be admitted to the event areas (including main foyer on the Saturday evening)

ID will be checked or requested if age is questionable.

Where can I find photos from the 2021 event?

The 2021 Event Photos can be found on our Facebook page CNZWildAdventures

A selection of event images can also be found on on our website here

Traffic Lights, Mandates & Vaccine Passports (as at 14 April 2022)

As at 11.59pm April 4th, vaccine passports are no longer required for hospitality & events

We have checked with our venues (Millennium Hotel - Rotorua & Sudima Hotel) and both have dropped their vaccine passport requirement in line with the government decisions and regulations.

As at 11.59pm April 13th our government has reduced the traffic light setting to "Orange" which means our event can now proceed this year.

The Government has said they will continue to review the traffic light system as and if necessary.  Hopefully we will not see a return to "red" or vaccine passports, and the event can go ahead as planned for this year

If I catch covid before the event and am unable to attend can I get a refund?

Unfortunately no.

By that stage we have already paid for everything based on Your Anticipated Attendance, and these include non-refundable payments to contractors, hire companies, caterers, venues etc.   

So just as if you were attending a concert and couldn't go because you missed your flight, got sick or any other reason you failed to attend, the ticketing company would not be able to refund you at this late point either, unfortunately neither can we.

Covid - Face masks - yes or no?  

(As at 14 April 2022)


As our event is a closed / private and ticketed event there is no requirement for face masks.

However if you feel safer or more comfortable including one in your costume design you are welcome to do so.

Feeling sick before the event?

PLEASE - do not attend this event if you are suffering any kind of flu or cold symptoms.

We know it will be a big disappointment to you if you do come down with a flu, and sadly yes the tickets at that point are non-refundable, but it would be appreciated that you consider others and do not spread any flu or cold symptoms with any of our other guests by attending while unwell.
