Experience the sight and sound of New Zealand's largest amateur rockets in action! Accelerating from zero to hundreds of kilometers an hour in just a few seconds, propelled skywards on a massive flame with the same signature crackle and roar as full-size rockets.

This annual public launch event attracts hundreds of visitors to a fun afternoon watching rockets launch.

Kids or adults keen to give rocketry a go can build and launch a small rocket on the day from between $20 and $40

The location is 1 hour 15 minutes from Auckland and 20 minutes from Hamilton, in a Waikato paddock. Bring something to sit on hat water and sunscreen. Food and drink, toilets and free parking on site.

See for further details and check the front page of the website at 8 am on the day for cancellations.
