Owner description: Welcome to Wanaka's wonderful world of weirdness! Puzzling World has been messing with people's heads since 1973. Bizarre buildings, rooms of illusions and our famous maze will baffle your brain and challenge your perceptions of reality. Even if you only pay a visit to New Zealand's most unusual public toilets, your world will never be the same again. Seeing is disbelieving!

“Awesome fun for filling in a couple of hours”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2012

Lots of fun and good value, $15 to do both activities (maze and puzzle rooms). We were there for a couple of hours and had a great time.

“unique”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2012

I have not found any such place anywhere else in the world. Great also with kids, especially on rainy day (skip the maze if too wet - still plenty to do there).

“Worth going”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2012

I went there after hearing from many people that it is very good. Even people who at the beginning did not really want to go there but were dragged by others came back and were stunned. Plus it is one of the cheapest attractions that I have seen in NZ
