If you’d rather have a shot of adrenalin than coffee and a movie, try one of these Arthur-inspired action dates in and around Auckland:
- Get fast and furious while extreme stunt car driving
- Blast around the harbour on a twin V8 engine jet boat
- Paddle a waka ama to Mission Bay
- Ride a quad bike to Muriwai Beach (only downside: helmet hair)
- Surprise your date with a mystery drive to a tent you’ve set up in advance at a campsite (OK, so we stole this idea from Arthur). Just make sure Mike Puru isn’t lurking behind the communal kitchen block.
