Up Close and Personal with an Endangered Species

We were down in Rotorua for Queens Birthday weekend, and there’s a place down there that I believe everyone should visit at least once. And once you’ve been, you’ll definitely want to go again. The place is called Wingspan, and it was set up for the conservation of New Zealand’s birds of prey – especially the New Zealand Falcon.

There were an estimated 150 people on board for a two-hour cruise that included dinner. I performed a couple of close-up sets around the tables and then Julie and I did a 30-minute show for the kids. If you’re looking for something different the next time you’re in Rotorua, then I highly recommend taking the Lakeland Queen. ...
