  • Very helpful staff with a good sense of humour especially since we came with 6 kids, very patient. They all had a blast and learnt some good old fashioned games after the maze. The maze was well kept ...  more »
  • The maze is great, harder than you think. Cool activities around the maze for the kids, our little ones loved the rabbits.  more »
  • Loved this place. Ok so we got a bit lost in the maze, but hey that meant more time spent there. Lots of other things to do. Especially good for kids or adults young at heart.  more »

  • Loved this! The lady there was so nice and helpful. Lots of shade to have a picnic, cool games around the outside of the maze and the maze itself is heaps of fun! 100% would recommend.
  • What a fun place! My kids got frustrated at first but then excited as they made progress. 25mins is the average solving time and that was spot on for us. Lots of lovely spots for a picnic and outdoor games to play with. The lady we dealt with at reception was lovely. Buggy and wheelchair friendly too.
  • Had an awesome time! Would highly recommend for families, work groups or competitive couples/friends :) loved going down memory lane playing all the classic school yard games
  • Loved this activity as did the kids! The maze was a lot of fun and fantastically presented. Should have brought a reward for making it to the middle! The games outside the maze kept the kids amused for a good while too.
  • Best place to bring the family. We just popped in on the off chance. Never expected it to be so good. Lots of classic family games around the outside..we even got to hold a monarch butterfly
