The help stations weren’t very helpful in my opinion. A little confusing with how they were set up. And make sure you have time you don’t know how long it will take you when your kid(s) want to keep exploring.... then suddenly “have to go”!...More

I wasn't big fan for the maze and I got stuck in the same section. The kids would have a great time going through and all the stamps.

To be honest, I didn't want to waste the money on this when my youngest asked to go while we were visiting Luray Caverns. Grumpy old dad thought it was another tourist trap. It is, kind of, but it was also a lot of fun....More

If you are on the fence, it's a definite if you're in the area. Fun for our entire family. RIGHT next to it is a ropes course my kids enjoyed and you always tour the caverns all from the same parking lot!

I was worried that the garden maze at Luray would be a hokey tourist trap, and while I suppose I'm not far wrong, but they actually put a lot of thought into this thing that our group was swept up in a lot of infectious...More

We decided to do this along with Luray caverns. It took us about 20 minutes to complete. It was about 22 dollars for 3 adults. We have a corn maze in the fall where we live. It was nice to go through greenery.

This was fun!I felt like a kid again! The maze might be a bit difficult at times, but there are plenty clues to direct you to the exit. Don’t get lost and enjoy!

We had a great time navigating this maze. When you enter the maze, they give you a small paper to stamp at different locations throughout the maze. If you collect them all, you get $ off of certain items in the gift shop. It was...More

It was fun trying to navigate the maze but I really don’t think we would have ever gotten through it without the hints provided. Nonetheless it was an interesting way to spend an hour. Got to talk to other people trying to figure it out....More

We knew we'd be outside so we made sure we were there early. It was a great morning with a light breeze. We took about 30 minutes to find all 4 stations, but we had a child leading us. Great fun.

We want to visit Shenandoah National Park and the surrounding area this summer. Our Day 1 plans are to visit Luray Caverns (The Garden Maze), Dark Hollow Falls and Hawksbill Mountain. Day 2, we are going to The Virginia Safari Park. Coming from Hampton, Virginia, what would be the best itinerary/route? We are staying in Harrisonburg. Would Hess Maze (now called Back to Home, I think) be better since we are staying in Harrisonburg? Finally, we wanted to go to Hull's Drive-In (Day 1), but we...More
