I'm a beginning writer with a Brisbane Bucket-list and a desire to see it all and report back.
Can you escape the labyrinth?
Currently outside of Brisbane Powerhouse is an old-school House of Mirrors designed to confuse and delight participants, and after experiencing it today I can definitely say that you must visit it, before it's packed away on the 11th of December.
This special event is a part of the Powerhouse's Wonderland Festival a fabulous mix of all things circus, theatre and magic. It is also fabulous flashback to the 19th-century old-style mirror mazes; meaning that there are no bells and whistles inside. It is actually made entirely of mirrors, more mirrors and some extra mirrors thrown in for fun.
We literally just giggled the entire time we were lost inside the maze.
This means that it is very easy to get lost in, even though it appears to take up a small amount of space. The hubby and I walked together throughout the maze most of the time, because when we did stray away from each other, it only took about 3 steps until we could either 1) not see each other at all anymore or 2) see seventeen versions of each other. There were a number of times when I walked straight into a mirror to locate my man, ensuring we spent most of our journey in fits of giggles.
Do try and go early in the day or at least when the line is short, because whilst the maze is brilliant regardless, it simply was awesome that we had a few moments to ourselves to enjoy the maze and create the perfect Instagram-worthy selfies.
Also be aware that the maze only takes 5 minutes if you don't stop and enjoy the craziness (it took us closer to 30mins and about 500 photos) so when planning your trip consider a walk along the river too, or a picnic in New Farm Park. However for only $10 it is worth every single cent.
This is my favourite selfie of the our time inside the maze. I actually took this photos; not a third party.
