The Shantytown Kids Zone Family Pass is a great deal.
Your kids will have a great time with everything included in this pass but note that some additional activities inside Shantytown cost extra. You'll get the steam train ride, the kids flying fox, the movie theatres, the jail and heaps more but the gold panning, tearooms/saloon/shop items, photos and transport to/from cost extra.

Take a break & let the kids entertain themselves or join them in some fun activities with this great value for money family pass.

Shantytown has great kid activities that will keep them amused while you look on and it tells some amazing local history aswell.

Let the kids Make your fortune on the gold fields at Shantytown. This preserved 1860’s goldrush town will keep them amused with it’s bush steam train, gold claim and cancan girls in at the saloon where you can also get a fine beer.
 
Shantytown is where New Zealand retells the inspirational stories of the hardy, treasure seeking  immigrants who battled through the harsh conditions of the most challenging of the 19th century’s great gold rushes to become West Coasters.
 
For 50 years now we’ve been recovering relics and buildings from abandoned goldrush towns  in the bush and restoring them at the 1860’s gold claim and town of Marsden, now known as  Shantytown.
 
This is a working gold claim town where you can get married in the church, ride a stage coach, make a killing at the gold claim and have local delicacies for lunch or enjoy a coffee. Then take a ride on the Climax, one of the steam trains puffing through the rain forest to the saw mill.
 
The West Coast has a strong history of Chinese miners and going into their gold workings at Shantytown will astonish you at how hard they had to work to survive.  
 
And if you need a break from the kids leave them at the Shantytown School where they will have to do their spelling on a slate, clean clothes in the creek with a wash board and say yes sir & no sir. They will love you for that wont they…. But it’s all worth it as there is a great flying fox zipline ride that will entertain them for hours.
 
This fascinating look back at our pioneering past  will leave you wondering at the tenacity and strength of your own ancestors as some probably came to NZ from your part of the world during those tough days of the 1800’s.
