New Zealand’s premier men’s lifestyle and entertainment expo Big Boys Toys returns for three action-packed and adrenalin-filled days.
This year’s highly anticipated event brings a dazzling array of action and entertainment with everything from fighter jets, extreme sports, luxury cars to flight simulators, all topped off with the New Zealand launch of sports sensation, the Flyboard-X!
The Action Arena is always a highlight of Big Boys Toys and this year is no exception with three days of extreme action and the country’s big names in Freestyle Motocross such as Luke Smith, BMX such as Jed Mildon, stunt car driving with Peter Bell from Drive Rush and wakeboarding.
Alongside the Action Arena is the Skinny Pit Area where you can meet some of the top stars of Drift & V8 driving in New Zealand for signing sessions.
The action-packed event also features the National Excavator Champs, where the best digger operators in Auckland show off their skills in the Outdoor Action area. This area will also feature a dirt bike track, display trucks, cars and power boats!
Another essential part of Big Boys Toys is Drive Performance, a showcase of the best performance cars on display for the ultimate chrome-filled petrol-head congregation. A highlight will be the launch of Holden’s incredible electric powered, Holden Volt, the first time on show to the public in New Zealand.
The Giltrap Group, one of New Zealand’s strongest vehicle groups, will also be there showcasing some of the finest performance cars around – from Aston Martin and Lamborghini to Bentley, Volkswagen and Porsche.
Big Boys Toys is also excited to announce that New Zealand’s premier CrossFit Auckland Games competition is set to take place at this year’s event. The competition will bring 140 of the country’s top CrossFit athletes all competing for a $10,000 prize pool.
In between all the crazy Big Boys Toys action, stop in at the Tui Public House and enjoy an iconic Mangatainoka brew on tap. A huge line up of comedians and bands will be there to keep visitors entertained while they enjoy a beer or two.
And those who think they’re man enough can front up to the Mother Fuelled Backyard Pool Challenge and test their giant pool-table skills against the ‘Striking Viking’, Ewa Mataya Laurance, professional pool table superstar from the US.
For the past 13 years, Big Boys Toys has led the way as the biggest and most notable men’s lifestyle and entertainment expo, and 2012 is undoubtedly going to bigger, ballsier and better than ever before.
