A Maze'n Things is one of the premier tourist attractions at Phillip Island, which is enjoyable for both adults and children alike. Featuring several different themed sections, A Maze'n Things provides a fair few hours of entertainment.
The set-up of the venue is as such that it is one-way, starting with the illusion rooms. With a gravity room, an Ames room and more; the illusion rooms confuse the senses to create strange experiences. Remember to bring your camera to capture the optical illusions, as photo taking is allowed throughout.
As the name suggests, there is an extensive and confusing (yet fun!) maze at A Maze'n Things. Allow yourself at least half an hour to locate all four flags and escape from the outdoor maze. Ensure that you have plenty of water and are being sunsmart, as there is very limited shade in the maze. Inside the main building, there is also a mirror maze. This was my favourite part of A Maze'n Things- just make sure you walk with your hands in front of you to feel obstacles or you might end up walking straight into your own reflection.
Puzzle Island is a unique and stimulating section of A Maze'n Things, with plenty of activities which require the ability to think laterally as well as some puzzles more suitable for children. Puzzle Island incorporates the partially vertical 6.5 metre Look Out! Slide, however it only operates at set times. I was there at a time which it was supposed to run, however there were no staff members in sight to operate the slide which was very disappointing.
The Maxi Mini Golf is what you would expect from a mini golf course; cute and entertaining but nothing special compared to the rest of A Maze'n Things. However, it makes for a nice way to conclude your visit.
A Maze'n Things is accessible by car, located about a one and a half hour drive out of Melbourne. As I do not have a car and desperately wanted to visit A Maze'n Things; I took a bus from Melbourne into Cowes and then walked for about an hour along Phillip Island Road. However it was worth the hassle, A Maze'n Things certainly lived up to its name.
