Unfortunately, due to several factors, we are unable to run factory tours these holidays. We are sad to not have you visit and we will let you know if we do them during the holidays after term 3. Thanks for understanding.
- The Dr Bugs Popcorn Team
Visit our Christchurch popcorn factory, and we'll show you around. There's nothing like fresh popcorn still warm from the production line, so you know you're in for a treat!
During the 35 minute long factory tour, you'll get to watch popcorn being made, taste it hot off the production line, and learn about what makes popcorn 'pop'. The kids will get to choose their own popcorn flavour to take a bag home. This tour is suitable for children and adults alike.
Please book one ticket for each participant aged 2 or over. Children under 2 are free, but unfortunately we can't fit strollers through the factory.
If you're unable to make it to a tour this holidays, give us an email to join our waitlist to be the first to hear about them next time!
We'll have a tonne of popcorn available for purchase afterwards, as well as the free bag that everybody will get. We loved showing everybody around last school holidays, and we can't wait for the next round!
