July 26, 2012 - PRLog -- Stephen and Darya Hanham, who already owned and operated a mini golf facility in Wes Auckland, were researching the possibility of opening a new center.  Their original site, called Transylvania, was doing very well as a stand-alone indoor golf course, but Stephen and Darya were enthralled by the idea of having an all-in-one multi-attraction FEC.

After searching their local region of New Zealand, they found a building they thought would be suitable.  It provided plenty of windows, was visible from the street, and was located just 2 miles from the Hauraki Gulf.  Although they had experience within the entertainment industry, they needed the helping hand of experts to continue their dream of opening this new site.  They discovered several companies, including Creative Works (  But after comparing everyone “apples to apples”, Creative Works provided more value and experience for the project.  Stephen and Darya were impressed with the company’s abilities and experience, with over 300 projects to their name.  The staff members of Creative Works, also known as the “Theme Team”, put together a proposal to develop their new fun center design and take care of everything from start to finish.

This plan included a laser tag arena, the award winning Lazer Frenzy laser maze, a 12-hole miniature golf course, and the brand new Mirror Amaze attraction.  Arcade games and a party area were also included in the layout to bring everything together and provide an all-in-one experience for guests.  The Theme Team began coordinating the architecture of the space to ensure every light fixture, smoke alarm, air duct, receptacle, and door were properly placed for a safe and operationally efficient business.  Creative Works even assisted with the branding and marketing by providing tried and true ideas.  The facility was themed to be a “space station”, and each attraction had a custom 12 foot portal archway to a different attraction for their guests to enjoy.

Creative Works fabricated all of the pieces and props for this state-of-the-art facility in their 33,000 square-foot Theme Factory in Indiana before shipping all of the goods to New Zealand.  This process allowed the production of the attractions and the build-out of the site to occur simultaneously, saving time so the facility could be opened to the public sooner than expected.  When the installation team arrived in New Zealand, it only took them 2 weeks to install and theme every part of the 12,000 square-foot Glo’Zone Station.

When the project was completed, the clients were more than thrilled with everything.  Although half a world apart during the design and project coordination phase of the project, Steve commented, “thanks for the great effort and A+++ communication and help along the way.  The installation team worked wonders at setting the place up in such a small time frame and we thoroughly enjoyed having theme here.”  Before the Theme Team flew back to the United States, Stephen and Darya took them to see the Tasmanian Sea and enjoyed a celebratory shot of Drambuie while watching the large and famous surfing waves crash upon the black iron sand.
