I was passing through Hamilton and thought I should drop by to see Riff Raff again, just outside the Waikato Museum. Richard O'Brien will be remembered long after the politician who refused to let him return home and become a NZ citizen.

We came across Riff Raff whilst taking a stroll from our hotel (didn't realise it was there) - nice statue - we'll let family and friends know its's there and to take a look.

What a bad location, its a great big let down. Its on the slummy main street of Hamilton.
Hamilton is a city where they have no respect for heritage buildings, the place is dirty, the restaurants and cafes are grubby and worn out.
Total lack of investment in the environment by council, building and business owners.
Why would you visit Hamilton, I cant answer that, it is appalling the hospitality scene should be embarrassed to say the least.

Knowing beforehand of its existence, I felt honour bound to seek it out. Frankly it was nothing special, but served as a reminder of the city's link to Richard O'Brien and The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

The Riff Raff status is a must see for avid Rocky Horror Picture Fans as well as Richard O’Brian fans. Better in the evening as the lights on the statue look amazing.

Also, as an awesome addition, there is step-by-step instructions on how to do the time warp and a secret camera that is live on Riff Raff Cam. SEARCH IT UP!!

We enjoyed a walk along the river at dusk and wandered back up to the street. Came across Riff Raff Statue on our way back to our vehicle - amazing and worth stopping for a good look

Not the biggest fan of the show but I learned something when we stumbled across the statue. Never realised that the premiere was in Hamilton. Something to store for a pub quiz!
