Wanaka’s Puzzling World is an iconic, world-unique attraction that since 1973 has been fascinating people of all ages keen to engage in a fun, challenging and sensory experience.

On entering the Puzzle Centre where dozens of puzzles await the curious and where food & drink from the well-stocked Café can be enjoyed is a great prelude to taking on the world famous Great Maze.

Encouraging problem solving, exercise and fun we invented a format with over-bridges and underpasses to create the world’s first 3-Dimensional Maze.

If your mind isn’t boggled, visiting Puzzling World’s Illusion Rooms is sure to. From a huge collection of holograms, a room where famous faces seem to follow you, one where you appear to shrink or grow, another where objects glide uphill and a sun-filled gallery of illusionary sculptures, these incredible rooms are designed to challenge reality!
