Owner description: A Maze’N Things is a unique, award winning theme park located on Phillip Island. It is a magical world of illusions, puzzles, mazes and mini golf that provides hours of fun. Families, school groups, social groups and couples young and old have spent hours challenging their mind, exploring Puzzle Island, wandering through kilometres of maze and swinging putters on our Maxi Golf course. Whatever you decide to do, we know that you’ll be laughing all the way. A Maze'N Things has an exciting new attraction, Magic Manor. This has amazing interactive magic displays, astounding illusions, mysterious caves, magic rabbits, a time machine, scare rooms, treasures, flying chandeliers and lots more. It will make you wonder, make you smile, surprise and astonish you. If you are a bit more daring take up the challenge of SkyTrail at A Maze'N Things. It's the newest concept in high rope courses and is the first of its kind in Victoria. SkyTrail is an adventure that fits almost every age and is very family friendly. Our gift shop specialises in unusual games and puzzles. It’s worth visiting in its own right, especially if you need to buy a present for someone and want it to be entertaining, interactive and stimulating. Our Puzzle Café serves a variety of light lunches, snacks and great coffee’s. We have a fantastic selection of brain teasers and puzzles in our Café that our guests can use whilst enjoying their snack. A Maze'N Things is open 7 days a week from 10 am and SkyTrail is open from 11am on weekends.

“Lots of fun”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

Much better than the website makes it look. Staff very friendly. So much fun for four grown adults. I think we got lucky as there weren't too many people there and it meant we got to play on/with pretty much everything.

Fantastic maze and crazy golf course, I don't think I've ever had the pleasure of more difficult courses in the past! Good work

“Wonderous world of puzzle......”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Recently spent an entire day at A Maze 'N Things with my cousin and three grandkids. At a cost of $120.00 for the 5 of us, we could have easily given it a miss, but I had been to Puzzle World in Wanaka NZ and wanted to see how our Australian version stood up.

We started with 19 holes of mini golf. The course was fun for all and meandered effortlessly on to the next hole The different technique required at each hole ensured a friendly rivalry, with the only golfer amongst us coming last.

Next, refreshments, and the opportunity to play with the puzzles available on the tables.

We then entered the main puzzle area. After finding our way through the mirror maze, the optical illusions of the climbing chair and sloping room we were in the main puzzle area. This was probably smaller than I expected, but the electronic jig saws and other activities kept the kids and us grownups occupied for hours.

As the weather was good, we ventured out to the maze and after some time we arrived at all four flags and successfully found our way out of the maze without using the emergency exits......

We returned to the electronic puzzle area and continued to play the games on offer.

A Maze 'N Things is open from 10am to 5pm daily. We arrived at 10.45am and departed 4.15pm.

Yes it probably is a little expensive, but for an absolutely fun day out it was worth it.

“Frivolous Fun”
Reviewed 4 July 2014 via mobile

We spent a fun and frivolous afternoon enjoying all the attractions A Maze'N Things had to offer. My husband was skeptical at first but the kid in him had an marvellous time. We thoroughly enjoying the 19 holes of complex, intricate and somewhat argument inducing mini golf (he won, but it was a close one). The illusions and other bits and pieces were all a delight and I especially enjoyed the free fall slide at the end. Finally, the maze topped it off nicely as we strolled around casually for half an hour seeking the flags and enjoying the crisp ocean air.

The staff were friendly and welcoming. One gentleman in particular was very helpful, great to talk to and, more importantly, convinced my husband to tackle the slide.

We bought discount tickets from the RACV website before we visited, which is definitely worth it, especially if you intend on doing everything.

Overall a fun and frivolous day out for the young or young at heart.

Thank you for your review. It is great to hear when adults come in and are a bit unsure but end up having lots of fun. We pride ourselves in being a place where adults have just as much fun if not more than kids. I am glad your husband was convinced to do the slide! I will pass on your positive comments to our staff.

Be sure to watch our website for new additions coming to A Maze'N Things soon.

Thank you for your review. I am glad that you enjoyed your visit, but I am sorry that you felt that the place was only small. The $60 you paid for your family would have allowed you to experience our Puzzle Island interactive area, our illusion rooms and our maze which on average can take well over an hour and a half to complete. We also have a number of free activities including puzzles and games in the dining area as well as mini mazes, children’s playground and BBQ area outside. We hope you come back to Phillip Island soon and try some of the other great attractions.
