Combination tickets to the Odyssey Sensory Maze and other fun, family-friendly attractions in Queenstown are also available.

How to Get There
The Odyssey Sensory Maze is centrally located on Shotover Street, a short walk from the lakeside area, so it’s easy to get to during a day exploring Queenstown. Most accommodation is within easy walking distance from the center.
When to Get There
The maze is open every day of the week from late morning until late evening, and hours vary by day. Queenstown is a popular tourist destination year-round, so the maze has the potential to be busy at any time. It makes an excellent rainy-day activity.
Visit Puzzling World in Wanaka
Travelers who enjoy the Odyssey Sensory Maze should consider taking a day trip to the pretty lakeside town of Wanaka, about an hour’s drive from Queenstown, to visit Puzzling World. At this family theme park, which features optical-illusion rooms and a giant outdoor maze, visitors can walk through a tilted house, a gallery of sculptural illusions, and the hall of holograms, among other attractions. Make sure to bring your camera, as the park offers lots of opportunities for taking wacky photos.
