PUZZLING WORLD HISTORY
Wanaka’s Puzzling World was opened in 1973 and started with the world’s first 3-D Super Maze! The brainchild of Stuart and Jan Landsborough, the Puzzle Centre and then the Illusion Rooms followed soon after. Boasting the Hologram Hall, Tilted House, Hall of Following Faces and Ames Room (where dwarfs and giants are created!) followed by 1999’s Leaning Tower of Wanaka and the famous Roman Toilets these developments helped cement its standing amongst the world’s weirdest attractions.
In 2004 Stuart handed over the reins to daughter Heidi and son-in-law Duncan Spear, and in 2012 they opened the exciting Sculptillusion Gallery.
