About
Gimnyeong Maze Park (김녕미로공원) is located between the two major tourist destinations of Manjanggul Cave and Gimnyeongsagul Cave. It was designed by the world famous company Adrian Fisher Minotaur Maze Designs and funded by the life-time savings of an American Professor at Cheju National University, Frederic H. Dustin, whose love for Jeju has kept him on the island for 27 years. This unique maze park contains foliages from all over Asia and has been personally maintained by Dr Dunstan since 1987. Gimnyeong Maze Park contains a maze that has seven images incorporated in it. The maze is in the shape of the Jeju Island, and its images that can be clearly seen from above include the following: a serpent, which was an object of worship on the island until the mid-70s; native horses of Jeju Island, which were brought there by Mongolians as far back as 1276; the ship, the Sparrowhawk, that was shipwrecked on the island in 1653 bringing Hendrick Hamel and his company of Dutch sailors to the Joseon Kingdom; and dolmens that are relics from the Bronze Age. All of these images are famous symbols or landmarks of Jeju Island. There are three skywalks called ‘gureum dari’ and an observatory, which are popular photo sites for tourists. They offer panoramic views of the entire maze. There are four ways to get through the maze from the entrance. If you use a map, it will take only 5 minutes, but without a map it’s a bit more difficult and can take up to 20 minutes. Some visitors have been known to spend up to 50 minutes lost in the maze before giving up and calling for help!

Lots of fun! Dozens of tame affectionate kitties greet you at the entrance. Cute kittens too! There is a toddler playground with toddler-sized shops play kitchens, jungle gym, rope course, teeter totter— al kid sized. Plenty of great spots for selfies of all kinds. The maze is very tall and take a good 15 minutes at full sprint to wind through and capture stamps on the way to ringing the bell. If you are feeling silly or have small a children with you, this is the spot!

Not bad but more suitable for young kids. We went there only cos it is next to the Manjanggul Cave which was close on the day we went.

My friend had completed the maze shorter time by instinct and not following the map. Me and my partner collected all the marking stamp but takes a longer time to end. But it was a great fun. Worth visit!

Fun activity to warm up and dry off after visiting the lava caves. The perimeter hedge symbolises the coastline of Jeju and care has been taken to maintain the maze as close to nature as possible. Shouldn't take more than 20 minutes to complete.

We planned this for the kids but the adults had fun too.

When we arrived, we bought the tickets while the kids were busy with the numerous cats around the area. It turns out that this is also a place for cat lovers, this place is a mini cat world too. You can get cat food from the ticket counter to feed the cats.

In the maze, the kids formed a team and raced with us, the parents. Each team had to find the stamps hidden around the maze and stamp on the paper given. First team to collect all 6 stamps and ring the bell to exit the maze wins.

Upon exiting the maze, as we passed thru the ticket counter again, the lady manning the counter asked us to visit the gift shop to claim a free postcard.

Actually pretty fun to race your friends and see who locates the end (bell) first. Cute cats with free cat food too. Just request it at the gate.

When we arrived i thought it looked boring, then u step in and u find lots of nice standees and "stations" for you to take selfies and wefies (they even set up the wefie stand for you) ! After you flood yrselves silly with pics, you can try the maze. Its interesting walking in and out and along the way you can look out for cats that are just chillin by the greenery. Overall a good experience especially for families !

I found this place very average. The design, the mazes and the whole layout is really nice but nothing else to be outlined, the museum was pretty poor and old. I think is the type of attraction to enjoy with your family and kids. The entrance fee is 9.000 won. If you are really truly into mazes, you’ll enjoy it, otherwise I will recommend a different attraction.

This is a very lovely maze park with a beautiful garden! We absolutely enjoyed the hour we spent here. The garden is well kept and we were given little bags of cat food to feed the 40 cats scattered throughout the garden.
