Source: Advanced Dark, January 9, 2008
The Otago Daily Times has published an interesting report, which mentions that the X-Men Origins: Wolverine production will be using the Queenstown Fun Centre Limited:
Queenstown may be preparing itself for Hollywood fever as filming for Hollywood blockbuster X-Men Origins: Wolverine nears, but one group of Queenstown residents has been left high and, quite literally, dry, with the production studio renting the Queenstown Fun Centre.
The Otago Daily Times understands the ice was taken off the rink recently and the surface will remain dry possibly until March.
Rumours are circulating the Fun Centre may be earning as much as $4000 a week for the rental.
