LOOK: Durban’s Amazing Maze is a feast for the imagination. The best part? Entrance is free

As parents, we’re always looking for fun ways to keep our kids entertained.

The Amazing Maze is Gateway Theatre of Shopping’s new must-see attraction that kids of all ages will enjoy.

“The Amazing Maze is a whimsical escape full of unexpected delights,” said Michelle Shelley, Marketing Manager at Gateway in Durban.

“Our creative team has conceptualised an incredible immersive experience, playing with scale, dimensions and perspective.

“Entering the Amazing Maze is an invitation to push pause on reality and unleash your imagination.”

Visitors meander through the selfie paradise on their way from the entrance to the exit. Pics snapped among the backgrounds, props and fantastical situations will leave friends guessing where on Earth you are.

For content creators, it’s a sensory overload.

“There are added elements of surprise in the Amazing Maze,” added Shelley.

“By finding and scanning strategically placed QR codes within the maze, visitors can unlock chances to win exciting prizes from our wonderful tenants.

“Plus, by participating in the Amazing Maze social media promo, they can qualify to receive one of a limited number of booklets with enticing value-added offers available at Gateway,” she said.

Here’s what you’ll find in the Amazing Maze.

Journeying on, adventurers reach the surreal expanse of Warped Reality, where time and space unravel and wonder takes over.
