So glad you enjoyed your time at Amaze 'n' Place. We see so often that it's the family that plays together that has such a wonderful time. Unfortunately, many parents feel a maze is just for kids and don't get to experience and enjoy the...More

The food was average. The staff didn't seem to care. It feels like a tourist trap and the sign out the front makes turning out of the driveway dangerous... it's a last timer in my books

The kids loved finding the clues in the maze and then chilled out by playing with the brainteaser puzzles over a milkshake in the cafe. We spent a relaxing 2 1/2 hours alternating between the maze and the cafe and we will definately visit again.More
