Armageddon Expo – Winter Auckland 2023

Expo Details

The first ever Winter Auckland Armageddon last year was such a huge success that the organisers are doing it again!

This year the expo will be held on King’s Birthday weekend and will be three whole days of pop culture madness, gaming arenas and celebrity guests.

Our Airsoft range was so popular last year we had queues lined up all day long!

This year we are arranging a new location for the range and display, so have allowed more time for setup on Friday.

Event Hours
  • Friday 2nd June Setup 10am – 4pm
  • Saturday 3rd June – 9am to 7pm
  • Sunday 4th June – 9am to 6pm
  • Monday 5th June – 9am to 5pm

Frequently Asked Questions

What clothing should I wear?

As we are presenting to the public it is important for our crew to be dressed appropriately.

No camo or BDU’s of any kind is to be worn.

Tidy black pants and either a club t-shirt or tidy black t-shirt or shirt are preferred.  If you don’t have a club tee yet, you can purchase merch here.

If you are feeling creative you can wear a post apocalyptic themed costume providing it is not of a military nature and does not incorporate camo patterns.

If you are unsure, please send us a photo of what your costume will look like for prior approval.

Can I carry my gun around?

No attendee is to bring or carry an Airsoft gun during these events.  All attendees are to remain around the Apocalypse Airsoft display while on duty.

Will display guns be stored at the expo overnight?

No. All display guns will be set up and removed daily. No Airsoft Firearms will be left on site.

We no longer require the loan of additional Airsoft guns for display purposes

Can I help for half a day?

With the logistics of site induction and safety briefings etc we would prefer all volunteers to be able to help out for a full day for any day that they register attendance.  You can help out for any one day (or all of them!) as it suits.

Can I bring my own guns to use in the shooting ranges?

No. Only the checked and approved NZ Airsoft hire guns will be used in either range.

Absolutely NO personal Airsoft guns are to be brought to the event.

Do I have to pay for an entry ticket?

No you don’t. The Expo organisers do not always supply us with enough free passes but our staff have never had problems gaining free entry. We may issue what passes we have during the day if you are coming and going frequently from the event. We will supply all NZ Airsoft helpers with branded lanyards which will help at the gate. If you have any issues being let in call Spanky on 021 065 1015.

Do I have to pay for parking?

Possibly.

We have managed to argue our way through the gate staff in the past.

We recommend carpooling to share parking costs if charged.

Please note that the Expo organisers ARE NOT the ones who are contracted for the parking. This is managed by a different company who charges the parking/gate fee to cover their costs.

We will supply all NZ Airsoft helpers with branded lanyards which MAY help at the gate.

Is there accommodation available for the weekend?

Yes there will be some accommodation available approx 10 minutes from the venue.  Spaces are limited so please RSVP as soon as you can if you intend to stay with us.

Once you have RSVP’d and indicate you will need accommodation we will provide you with additional information including address details.

If I am staying, what do I need to bring?

Whether you are staying one night or the full weekend, please bring an airbed, sleeping bag and towels for showering.

Will food be available during the event?

Some food and snacks will be supplied for the weekend, along with drinks.  There are plenty of places to purchase food at the event as well.  For Sunday night after the event there will be a dinner get together for those of us staying at the accommodation provided.  Friday & Saturday dinner will be decided during the weekend.
