Do not miss this it’s so much fun. Bring your kids or do what we did and release your kid. Loved the illusions and the maze was a hoot more »
Good place, but the bathrooms have room for improvement. The tilted room is by far the best one as you have no clue if the room is actually tilted or not. It truly is an illusion. The wall of heads is also great. This place is lots of fun and I would definitely recommend this to others.
We decided to do this because it was raining, and it was so much better than we expected. We spent hours here and the great maze was a fun challenge. The illusion rooms are awesome and really mind bending, we were actually a bit tired by the time we'd finished. The service was super friendly and the gift shop was incredible. If you have some time in Wanaka I would definitely recommend this place.
