In July 2003 another Cadbury World was opened in Dunedin, New Zealand. It is located in the Cadbury Factory site at 280 Cumberland St, close to the city centre near the Octagon. This is one of the largest factories in Dunedin that also offers tours and has become very popular with tourists visiting Dunedin. In May 2008 renovations were carried out inside the Cadbury World Visitors’ Centre. The attractions which had existed since the opening were taken out, and new areas were added, including an Aztec-themed room and Old England room. Unlike the Cadbury World in Birmingham, it offers guided tours around the manufacturing area of the factory.
The Dunedin Cadbury World offers three different tours: the Factory Tour, the Shortened Tour, and the Centre Tour. The Factory Tour takes approximately 75 minutes, and incorporates a ten minute self-guided tour around the Visitors’ Centre before a fully guided tour through several areas of the operational factory. Chocolate samples—including fresh liquid chocolate—are given along the way, and the tour culminates in a five-story decommissioned crumb storage silo, inside of which currently is the world’s largest chocolate waterfall. The Factory Tour only operates on weekdays; the factory does not work on the weekends. As a result, Shortened Tours are offered on Saturdays and Sundays. These tours do not venture into the factory; instead a DVD is played which shows weekday operation. The final tour option, the Centre Tour, is purely self-guided around the Visitors’ Centre. All tours end up in the Cadbury World retail outlet, which has chocolate at discounted prices compared to supermarkets in Dunedin, and unique, novelty souvenirs.
Between the 1 December and the 24 December, Cadbury World Dunedin opens Santa’s Grotto. Visitors make their way through a collection of handmade and animated Christmas-themed puppet displays concluding with a free photograph with Santa Claus and his fairy helpers. A bag of chocolate samples (including Christmas novelty items) is given.
