1.4 kilometres of winding hedge lined pathways take you to the centre of the maze. You are bound to get lost and are guaranteed to have loads of fun finding your way.
The object of this 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. At some places along the path are permanent blocks, which means you will have to retrace your steps if you wish to progress further. Directly ahead as you enter the maze 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.
In 2005, 1400 Escallonia shrubs (a small leaved evergreen) were grown from cuttings. Transplanted onto the 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 in January 2010.
Amazeme is based on the original idea of Bob and Carol Gee who owned the Fairbank Maze until it was demolished in 2002.
Earlier Maze in Rotorua
An earlier maze in Rotorua, the Fairbank Green Hedge Maze, is no longer in existence. See a photo and a video from 1991.
