Amazing 3-D Maze
A maze designed to be a challenging and enjoyable life size puzzle. Made from timber grown on the property, the objective is to find the way to the four corners, the ocean, savannah, desert and forest. Visitors can try The Challenge and find the 4 corners in a given order before exiting. Allow approximately 45 to 60 minutes to complete, but there is no rush and your can try as many times as you like! If a break is needed, visitors can stop and admire the beautiful view of the Outeniqua Mountains and Formosa Peak from the elevated bridges, or relax on a bench in each corner. There are emergency doors in the maze for those who are lost, confused, out of time or have given up!! This maze is a lot of fun and is designed to intrigue people of all ages! We will regularly be changing the flow of this maze, so it won’t be the same when visitors come a second time!
Forest Puzzle Walk
Visitors are able to meander their way through the beautiful natural forest, and test their mental skills en route! Nine puzzle stops along the route feature a variety of word, shapes and general knowledge challenges, designed to test strategic and creative thinking and challenge all ages. Each challenge has a 5 minute countdown timer so the pressure is on to be quick – visitors need to sharpen those brains before trying! If 7 of the 9 challenges are completed without using the clues, a free cup of coffee or cold drink is won! Challenges are changed regularly, so they might not be the same when visitors come a second time!
Kids Puzzle Area
A mini maze for the smaller kids, a jungle gym and swings and some cute bunnies will keep the kids entertained for hours. A spider web of colourful ropes creates a fun challenge for kids. Suitable for children under 16, each contestant clips themselves to a coloured rope and weaves along the rope from start to finish, under and over all the other coloured ropes and contestants. Flexibility and agility is required and competing against others adds to the fun.
Coffee Shop and Puzzle Gift Shop
After working up a thirst in the maze and on the walk, visitors are able to enjoy light refreshments such as toasted sandwiches, homemade cakes, coffee/tea and cooldrinks in a beautiful and tranquil garden setting. The Puzzle Gift Shop has a variety of puzzles to challenge and intrigue – we stock a range of entertaining gifts and souvenirs for kids and adults.
Plett Puzzle Park is situated on Oakhill Farm, where local owners Colin and Wilane McLeod have lived since 1983. All attractions and games have been researched and created by Colin, and the 3-D maze is a brand new and unique design. Over time they aim to build more fun, intriguing and educational attractions at Plett Puzzle Park while creating sustainable local employment.
