AMAZE 'N' THINGS

Amaze’N’Things is one of the best activities on the island. The puzzles, illusion rooms and bizarre interactive displays are enough to keep you entertained for hours, but there is also a massive vertical slide (the highest in the Southern Hemisphere), a mini-golf course and a timber maze outside. We love their newest attraction, the SkyTrail high ropes course, which involves working out 34 climbing challenges.
