the maze is not that exciting an amusement device. They work as a
small part of a fun house, but larger ones don't hold much interest
good has been done to jazz it up. The example that springs to mind
is the Chinese Puzzle Maze at Blackpool.
The subject of Chinese themed rides brings me to this, which uses
the formula of 40% maze, 15% funhouse, + 45% pleasant gardens = 100%
great family attraction. It starts out with a nice Chinese garden
looks like just a walk to the central pagoda, where you can climb up
to the top. If you venture in though there are a few surprises. The
first is you don't get to go to the upper level of the pagoda. This
is a surprise as you think they would have wanted to utilise the
building it. The nice surprise though is the large secret garden at
the back of the pagoda.
The walkthrough here consists of some nice themed areas, some
interesting maze areas as well as a few simple fun house obstacles.
This results in a very nice and pleasant attraction. Seeing as it's
walkthrough nature means your very unlikely to have to ever queue
for it, it's definitely one to do.
