Summer is in Auckland. It’s time to do something different, try new things and maybe even dance like no one is watching? If always wanted to give the Silent Disco Citywalk a go, but were too afraid, here is some good news. We invite you to do it in a super fun and safe environment with a bunch of your mates. Give a call to best friends and book your next Auckland event with Papaya Stories! Fall in love with the city all over again with the help of Silent Disco Citywalk Friends Edition.

It is a great physical and immersive activity for your Mind. Body. Soul. Movement is a great release of stress and suppressed emotions. Dance or walk is a good exercise. Enjoy the moment with people you love is priceless. Combine those elements together and you are about to get the real taste of the Silent Disco Citywalk Friends Edition.

How does the Friends Edition different from a standard Silent Disco Citywalk?

Keep it simple and small. The Friends Edition suits small groups (5-10 people). Or keep it big and loud. Of course you can get a community group together and invite up to 30 people to participate in your walk. But please note that the number of participates affects the final costs.

You can enjoy the walk during anytime of the day – in the early morning, relaxing evening or during the FULL Moon night. Listen to the call of your heart and choose a day that suits your mood keeping in mind hot summer days and the heat of New Zealand sun from 11am till 4pm.

The Friends Walk is much more personal, beautiful. In addition it it a super safe place to be. The experience doesn’t require to step out of your comfort zone as much as you are surrounded by people whom you love and trust. No judgement, no stereotypes, just love and freedom. Best friends and like-minded crew shape the extra bubble of comfort that allows you to step out and dance in public with less fear, shame BUT with more confidence, love and support.

In addition you are able to personalise your music playlist in a personal way. You can come up with your own theme and write down a list of your favourite songs.  For example, when we organised a walk for our team and Russian friends, we asked each participant to contribute TOP 5 all time favourite Russian songs. Then we randomly selected three songs out of five and mixed them in the final playlist. As we had 12 people joining the walk, we ended up having 36 songs in the final playlist. We didn’t announce or publish the playlist beforehand, so the order of songs was an additional pleasant surprise for participants. It also made the whole experience extra special knowing that one of your favourite songs was definitely included.

Please note that the recommended time for the personalised playlist is about 60-90 minutes.
We can create a playlist that will be suitable for 2-hours walk too.

As for the route design and preference feel free to ask us to plan a route for you and let one of our guides to assist you with the walk. What the video below to get inspired about this city adventure.

What our audience says about the Silent Disco Citywalk Friends Edition.

What a joy to be a part of Papaya Stories experience. Amazing and safe place to be true authentic yourself without being judged and stereotyped.  You just put the headphones on and dive into the kingdom of music. You can sing, you can dance or you can just walk and enjoy the city and people around you. It is purely your choice.  – Rimma
