A year of change for iconic at­trac­tion

Go Travel New Zealand - - Wanaka -

Through­out its forty year his­tory a vi­tal as­pect of Wanaka’s Puz­zling World has al­ways been to en­cour­age a theme of con­tin­ual re­de­vel­op­ment so it was no sur­prise that in­stead of tak­ing a break af­ter their re­cent Il­lu­sion room ex­ten­sion the man­age­ment team of Heidi and Dun­can Spear went head­long into the next phase of devel­op­ment.

A com­plete re-paint of all in­door and out­door ar­eas in­cluded bright fea­ture walls through­out the Puz­zle Cen­tre, Gift shop and Il­lu­sion Rooms. Up­dated AV dis­plays in­cluded in­no­va­tions in holo­graphic and pre­sen­ta­tion soft­ware that of­fer New Zealand’s first Holoboxx and Vir­tual As­sis­tant that have wowed visi­tors.

The old­est Il­lu­sion room, The Tilted House was com­pletely over­hauled, the pop­u­lar Psy­chic Chal­lenge was up­graded and given a new home while a large His­tory Wall of film footage and mem­o­ra­bilia high­lights the growth and changes to the at­trac­tion over the years.

A com­plete re-clad of the iconic Tum­bling Tow­ers was next and with a mix of ma­te­ri­als and colour along with the ad­di­tion of a schist stone frontage the new ver­sion is set to re­main a land­mark for a long while yet!

What’s next for 2014? – you’ll just have to visit this win­ter and see for your­self!.
