Wildlife Parks / Central

aMAZEme is a 1.4km maze! Constructed from immaculately pruned, head-high escallonia hedge. Lose yourself (or the kids) in the endless spirals.

In 2005, 1400 Escallonia shrubs (a small leaved evergreen) were grown from cuttings. Transplanted onto our Rotorua maze site in December 2007, they have quickly grown to a height of 1.8 metre allowing this new venture to open 6 months ahead of schedule.

The object of our Rotorua maze is to find your way to the centre. Once in the maze you will find openings in the hedge which you may or may-not choose to go through.

In some places along the pathway of our Rotorua maze, there are permanent blocks, which mean you will have to retrace your steps if you wish to progress further into the maze.

Directly ahead as you enter our maze in Rotorua are a series of one-way doors, which can only be opened from inside. These are for a quick exit from the centre or from any path.

At aMAZEme, our friendly family attraction in Rotorua, we also offer:

  • Small animal enclosure where your children will delight in the animal petting experience
  • A play area made up of "good old fashioned family fun"
  • McGregor's garden with raised garden beds full of fruit, berries and vegetables in season
  • Giant board games such as connect 4, snakes and ladders, ludo plus so much more!

After a busy day roaming through what aMAZEme has to offer you are sure to go home satisfied that you got your money's worth!
