Wonderland - the 1906 equivalent of a theme park - was set up in Christchurch's Hagley Park during the New Zealand International Exhibition.
It included a "most riotous" water chute, which sent people hurtling into Victoria Lake on a small boat.
Almost 1500 Christchurch households could soon have their recycling bins confiscated as the city council cracks down on people who refuse to separate their waste.
About 180 yellow wheelie bins have already been removed and the council has sent final warnings to another 1450 residents.
To get the bins back, they will have to pay $97.65 and sign a statement promising to abide by the rules. Their bins will be monitored to make sure they keep that promise.
Christchurch City Council has spent close to $1.5 million sending almost 1500 truckloads of contaminated material from yellow bins to landfill since May. That equates to about 41 per cent of all yellow bins.
Do you agree with council's strict recycling approach? Let us know below.
