What you need to know

In terms of kids attractions in New Zealand, it's hard to get more unique - or satisfying - than this. Wanaka's Puzzling World has been entertaining little ones from around the globe for over 40 years, and doing so with an innovative display of imagination and quirky flare that helps separate it from the likes of standard theme parks or other bland tourist attractions. It's undeniably eccentric - immediately apparent on approach due to its interesting take on architectural angles and colours - and this is a large part of its charm, while its various mazes, illusion rooms, and even its introduction to basic science for little ones all commendable.

Its maze is the major highlight, and it's surprisingly challenging, with participants able to tick off each of its individual "towers" before attempting a final escape (expect around an hour in the maze alone). Its illusion rooms are likewise highly interesting - have you ever seen water flowing uphill before? - and each of the effects are explained in (laymen's) scientific terms to provide the logic behind what you're seeing; kids and adults alike can actually have fun while learning here.

Even the simply process of enjoying a coffee is made entertaining at Puzzling World, with a cavalcade of puzzles with which to tease your brain while enjoying a coffee or bite to eat from its quality on-site cafe. A must-do for families in the Lakes region, and well worth the drive from Queenstown for those travelling NZ with kids.
