“Fantastic family fun”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

I had read the reviews and it was definitely a huge hit with the whole family. It has 2 parts - the forest quiz which is a trail in a forest with 10 puzzle stations. You have to win 7 tokens to get a prize. Really good puzzles. I teamed up with my 9 yr old and some were hard and some were really good for us both (I'm very competitive and yes, we won a prize!!). The 2nd part is the 3D maze. The 3D bit means you have to sometimes go up over a bridge or under it. You have to make your way to all 4 corners, exchanging different coloured tokens when you get there until the end when you get a multicoloured one. Well, my 17 & 14 yr old were unbelievably amazing it and had whizzed around in prob 45 mins. My husband and I, with 9 yr old in tow were pathetic and got rescued by my eldest having only found one corner!!! Fantastic fun, very challenging but not claustrophobic that you don't think you would ever get out. A great was to spend an afternoon.

“Family fun”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

The maize is pretty tough and the owners change it around annually - sometimes even more often than that - so its worth revisiting. The forest walk is my favourate and it a very stimulating way to spend your day. Dont be in a hurry though, because you will have less fun. The Plett Puzzle Park adjoins The Jukani Wildlife Sanctuary so to combine a visit to Jukani when you are at The Puzzle Park makes a lot of sense. This attraction is suitable for all ages, and school going kids will enjoy this - especially if they know the answers to the puzzles before their folks do.

The puzzle cafe, is laid back in a garden setting. I like their chocolate cake very much.

There is a little free kids maze near the restaurant and kiddy play area - this helps quite a bit because adults are able to relax while the kids play safely + nearby.

“So much fun”
Reviewed 27 February 2014 via mobile

We did the maize as a family and we had to work together to get through it. it was so much fun but not easy... The surprise of the day was the amazing food. Extremely delicious. And while we waited the restaurant had an old table full of old puzles. Really a fantastic day of family fun.

“What Fun!”
Reviewed 12 February 2014

We took our 1-year-old and 3-year-old along and decided to do the Forest Walk (mostly because there was already a 'free' kids maze in the kids play area that the 3-year-old enjoyed and it was really hot and so we opted to shelter under some trees). There were 9 puzzle stations to complete and they were well-constructed and fairly challenging. The 3-year-old enjoyed helping the family with the picture puzzle challenges, but the 5-minute-time-limit was tough! A great way to connect with family (especially slightly older kids I'd imagine). There is a small shop, but it didn't offer any fun puzzle-type souvenirs (which one would expect).
