  • Easier if 2 people go opposite directions and agree to meet back in the middle who got the dead end. There is a secret section which leads out making you think youre going out but it actually bypasses...  more »
  • A great way to increase the daily step count, with a bit of a challenge and some fun. We also played some of the other games outside for some extra fun. Nice friendly host too!  more »
  • Difficult maze, but bit of fun. Has other few games to play, and few picnic benches. Nothing much. Friendly staff.  more »

  • Great fun. The maze looks amazing and the facilities around it are clean and good. Good for a personal challenge or a race against friend's or family. Challenge someone and see who finishes first. Be prepared to get hot and sweaty if you take along time as there is no shade. Longest it ever took was 3 hours. Would definitely recommend it.
  • This was a spontaneous find and so glad we went for it, the staff was super friendly- he gave us tips on what to do around rotorua without us asking. The place had cool games and a little garden which was so well maintained. Great for kids and adults alike
  • Amazing place to get lost. Friendly Pierre at the desk. I liked the red doors. Great for someone that panics like me. Awesome walks through the maze to keep your heart pumping and kilos down.
  • At aMAZEme the staff are kind and the scenery is stunning. There is a little shop that sells goodies or handmade items. There is a little play area with stilts, battleship, noughts and crosses, another game and swing tennis. The maze is challenging but fun at the same time. At the back of the maze there is a garden area with bunnies, frisbees and a volleyball net. Overall the place is amazing.
  • This place is amazing and not easy to get through the maze. Make sure you wear cap, apply sun block before you enter the maze. Opposite the aMaze, we found alpacas.
