Located next to the workshop in the Wellington suburb of Miramar, the cave contains many of the characters and props designed for blockbuster movies.  The retail shop is full of collectables, books, swords, games, merchandise  and a mini-museum.  The cave also screens interviews with the company's co-founders and gives an insight into how the creations are made.
