“Challenge your mind!”
Reviewed July 26, 2011

We spent quite some time sitting in this overlit cafe playing with all the puzzles and games they have sitting on the tables. The kids (7 and 10 years) were enthralled. We also spent quite a bit playing in the maze, the mini-golf (9 holes), the model trains, the remote control boats.

You pay for only what you intend to use there (puzzles/games on tables are free to use) so $7 each for the maze, $2 for 5 minutes on the train, and so on. We didn't do everything on offer and there are a lot of bits to do - all a bit random but fun. Things seem a bit pricey but when you consider we played games for 2 hours at a table, the activities aren't that costly.

The cafe is basic - the cake was surprisingly fresh and tasty. The staff can help you solve most of the puzzles on hand.

Great for all ages and a relaxed attitude.

“Kept the kids entertained”
Reviewed February 5, 2011

Kids 5 - 13 enjoyed puzzle world. I liked the fact that you only paid for the activities you wanted to take part in.
There is a cafe there & on the tables are lots of puzzles you can try at no charge.

There's a maze, mini golf, drum set, etc. Also a nice shop where you can get puzzles to keep the kids quiet for a while!
