If you want to go somewhere totally amazing, mind blowing, fantastic, some place that you just have to experience to believe all the hype, then Infinity on the Gold Coast is a MUST see attraction if you are ever travelling up that way.
It is a huge mirror type maze with lots of special lighting effects and sounds, and it's quite dark but has strobe lights. It's something so magical and crazy, its so hard to describe unless you actually go.
It's best to go in a big group, or at least with a partner so you can help each other through the maze. It's hard to see but the strobe lights do help. You cannot move backwards, you must go forwards in order to finish the maze. There are special doors you must find that will take you to the next cool room.
I went with my cousins and my uncle, we had a 40 minute adventure making our way through the maze. My oldest cousin who was 18 at the time didn't like it, she thought it was too scary and claustrophobic. However my 13 year old cousin, uncle and I really enjoyed it.
We had to hold onto each other's arm or shoulder so that we didn't get separated or lost, because it can get quite dark in there.
The types of people that would enjoy this attraction would be the adventurous, curious, brave, and thrill seeking. People that would not like this attraction would be people who are scared easily, have a fear of loud noises and darkness, have a tendency to feel claustrophobic or don't like having no control.
Once you are in the maze, you have to keep moving forward, so if you're the type to freak out you can't change your mind and go back - so if you're the type of person who gets spooked easily, don't go in. Also if you're planning on going with a few people, and you know one of them won't like it, tell them not to go in. Otherwise it will just be distressing for them.
I really enjoyed it and found it fascinating in the maze. It's hard to imagine how somebody built such a fantastic maze like that.
They provide you with gloves for your hands and shoes so you don't mark the mirrors. It is easy to walk in them.
You must follow all the rules; if there is something that you don't like, ask a staff member. If it's not suitable for you, don't go.
I advise you not to bring small children, they will get scared, I can guarantee it. When I went there was a 5 year old crying when she came out at the end. Even the bravest little boys might get a bit scared in this whole other dimension. If you think your children might like it, ask yourself the following questions:
Do they listen when they are asked to do something?
Are they afraid of darkness?
Would they get scared of the unknown?
What would they do if they knew they weren't able to leave right away?
If your answers to these questions are somewhat negative, find something else to do on the Gold Coast. If you are taking kids who don't listen very well it will be very hard to guide them through the maze, as you have to make sure you all stick together.
I would give this attraction a 8/10 - the reason why is because it is quite pricey, but I guess you can justify it because there must be a lot of work involved in maintaining the place, however it would be a real waste of cash if you were to not enjoy it. Another reason is that halfway through the maze you have to pose for a photo, but when you get out they charge you a bit for the photo, but if you want the memories, you have to pay I suppose.
Comments from my family that went with me,
18 yr old cousin - "Very scary, and I got really claustrophobic, I wouldn't do it again."
13 year old cousin - "Coolest place ever, I wish I lived in Queensland so me and my friends could go. It was so unreal, somewhere I can't even describe."
My uncle - "Really awesome, quite expensive but at least I can say I have experienced it. It was a lot of fun and I would do it again if I could."
