INSIDE: Play at the World’s Coolest McDonald’s Playground in Taupo with Kids 2018.
Taupo is home to the WORLD’S COOLEST MCDONALDS!
Want to know why?
There’s a GIANT AEROPLANE for the kids to eat in.
You can’t see it from the main road, so be sure to follow our directions to get there.
Taupo with Kids
McDonalds is our pitstop for hot Chai Latte (or coffee) at any time of the day.
We love their clean toilets, but most of all, we love their playgrounds.
When it’s raining and we’ve had our fill of indoor tourist attractions , or when the kids’ fighting in the backseat on a roadtrip is no longer tolerable, we google ‘McDonalds near me’ and make a detour.
We found the World’s Coolest McDonalds by accident!
The World’s Coolest McDonalds to Eat In
Take your lunch up inside the airplane and you’ll find comfy retro seating, lining the aircraft in pairs by each window.
Where else can you eat your McDonalds treat inside an airplane? Nowhere in the world. (You can however eat regular food inside this Aeroplane in Bali!)
Taupo McDonalds Playground
Taupo McDonald’s is a McDonalds with play area too – a fun outdoor playground sits below the airplane for the kids to explore too. Hooray – it’s undercover.
On our roundabout drive to Waitomo from Rotorua, stopping at this Maccas playground was our best idea of the day.
