    What to Expect
    Visit: Puzzling World, 188 Wanaka-Luggate Highway Southern Lakes, Otago, Wanaka 9305 New Zealand

    Welcome to Wanaka’s wonderful world of weirdness!

    Immediately, visitors are met with the famous Tumbling Towers while opposite, The Leaning Tower of Wanaka offers great photo opportunities as friends or family appear to hold, push or rip out the tower, foundations and all.

    Walking into the Puzzle Centre where dozens of puzzles await the curious, while a massive kaleidoscope ceiling looks on from above is a visual treat in itself.

    Grab a bite to eat or a drink from the well-stocked Café then engage the brain with many individual puzzles and two-person brain teasers on offer. Trained staff are on hand to help if required and with a huge selection for sale in the Gift Shop all ages, abilities and temperament are covered.

    Even the bathrooms here are photogenic with both the Roman Loos and Puzzle Abyss toilets featuring incredible floor and wall art that seems to absorb the user within its imagery.

    If your mind is still not boggled, a visit to the Illusion Rooms is sure to. From one of the world’s largest displays of 3-D Hologram photos, a room where 168 famous faces seem to follow you, one where you appear to shrink or grow, another where objects look to glide uphill and a sun-filled gallery of incredible illusionary sculptures, these amazing rooms will certainly challenge your perceptions of reality.

    Outside, The Great Maze encourages problem solving, exercise and fun. The format was invented and designed to suit all ages with over-bridges and underpasses to create the world’s first 3-Dimensional Maze. Don’t worry, Emergency Exits for those with limited time, patience or energy are also included for those who may struggle.

    With so many incredible things to see and do here we suggest you allow plenty of time to enjoy your unforgettable visit to Puzzling World.

    Located two kilometres from Lake Wanaka on the main highway north, Puzzling World is just an hour’s drive from Queenstown.

    We arived early so avoided the buses.We did both the maze and illusions. The maze was fun, but the illusions were really great.Never got to try the cafe as it was full. Allow at least 2 hours here.

    Had reservations before entry and was blown away by painting on wall and was very exited to go in after that. But that’s about as far as the excitement went. Over priced for the experience and only a couple of things that were worth being...More

    Need to do the combo maze + illusions room for best value, otherwise you would be done too soon. Cafe area with puzzles to solve is great. Probably a little over priced but this doesn’t seem to stop people coming. Kids had a great time.
