TEEG invests in New Zealand to bring more happiness to Kiwis
Just in time for the start of the holidays, The Entertainment and Education Group’s (TEEG’s) brand new, 3 million-dollar Timezone venue in Newmarket, Auckland welcomed its first guests. Newmarket is the 4th new venue for TEEG to have opened in New Zealand in the last 12 months, with another 4 new venues on the way to open late 2020.
The doors to Timezone Newmarket’s state-of-the-art entertainment venue opened last month to a grand opening that saw the likes of Toni Street, Stacey Morrison and Martin Guptill mingling with cartoon heroes like Pikachu and Buzz Lightyear, for an event unlike any other!
The two-storey, 1200sqm venue has taken over a corner of Newmarket’s popular Broadway street and has instantly become a family favourite with its mix of Classic Arcade Games and brand-new Virtual Reality Games, adrenaline-pumping Laser Tag as well as New Zealand’s very first Spin Zone Bumper Cars.
“We were thrilled to see Auckland families come out in support of the new Timezone and the sheer joy and excitement on the faces of all the kids was plain to see,” says Belinda Falzon, NZ Chief Operations Officer for TEEG. “It’s been a hard few months for Kiwi families and by providing a safe and exciting entertainment hub for kids, we know Timezone is going to be a place where these families can, once again, create long-lasting memories together. We know we will see the same enthusiastic welcome when we start opening more venues around the country throughout 2020 namely Palmerston North, Christchurch, Napier and Dunedin.
Not only are TEEG investing in new venues but, most importantly, the focus for the TEEG team has been to enhance the guest experience which has included initiatives, such as a revamped loyalty program and Birthday Parties.
“I couldn’t be prouder to see the growth and success of TEEG in New Zealand. We are confident from the guest feedback and results so far, that New Zealand will continue to be an important part of the global growth strategy” says Sonaal Chopra, Group Chief Executive Officer.
