Rotorua District Council (RDC) wants the city’s popular Eat Streat precinct to become a permanent CBD feature and is working with local designers to develop it into a landmark attraction.
Eat Streat, the area of Tutanekai St bounded by Pukaki and Whakaue streets, was developed in 2008 as a trial concept for alfresco dining in the CBD. The pedestrian-only zone introduced
new coordinated dining furniture, sun umbrellas, trees, and planter boxes.
Rainbow Springs, Rotorua last week opened The Big Splash, its $10m thrill ride. Described as a family-friendly eco-experience designed to entertain and educate visitors about conservation and sustainability, The Big Splash ride features a 12-metre waterslide. Guests ride in of a fleet of eight-seat boats departing at one-minute intervals, passing through a native forest canopy, past a Maori
pa settlement and a European timber mill town. Life-sized moa, Haast eagle and dinosaur models inhabit the dense 1ha forest planted with 7000 native trees and plants to represent ancient Aotearoa New Zealand.
