    This is a hidden gem. A very pleasant surprise. We could probably stay here for the most part of the day if we came earlier. Great place for the family, including a challenging maze.  more »

    The hosts were outstanding with lots of tips to do around town during our stay. The maze and associated games were in excellent condition, and we couldn't have enjoyed ourselves more! A great visit! (...  more »

    Had a great time here today - the owner/manager is very friendly and everything is well tended. There are heaps of great games for the kids and adults to do after the maze - was a lovely afternoon out for our family.

    Good fun, lots of other activities and games for kids and bigger kids. Worth the entry. This place would be perfect for large groups and birthday parties.

    The maze was fun because it's quite big and challenging. It's fun going with a group of people and seeing who can get to the centre first. The pricing isn't too bad either. It was good entertainment...and exercise.

    They said it takes an average of 20 minutes to get through the maze on your first go. I didn't believe it would be that challenging but it took us almost half an hour in the end. It was good fun
