INSIDE: Why you should take the kids to Odyssey Sensory Maze Auckland. 2018.
We can’t show you any photos of our visit through the Odyssey Sensory Maze Auckland. There aren’t any. No cameras allowed.
But that’s kind of good.
We wouldn’t want to spoil the surprise!
The Odyssey Sensory Maze in Auckland City was a last minute surprise find – a tiny ad on the last page of a tourist brochure. We almost missed it.
It’s not cheap – – and you’ll be in and out under an hour, BUT for laughs, crazy new experiences, and shared memories, it’s worth every cent.
Buy the Crazy Goggles for $2.50 a pair. It adds another dimension.
Warning: if you are claustrophobic, or scared of the dark, do not enter. You also need to have good knees! There’s crawling on hands and feet involved.
There was definitely a moment or two when I had to slow my breathing, and keep hold of my anxiety, so I didn’t freak out!
Thank goodness for those years of calm yoga breathing practice me. Without that, I might have been tempted (more than once) to wave my hands at the ‘Help’ camera and seek assistance to get out. Stat.
Good For Kids? Our Odyssey Sensory Maze Review
Were the boys scared? NO. Not in the slightest.
They thought this was the BEST thing they’ve ever done. (A pretty big call.)
There’s different sensations, smells, feels, challenges and experiences in each ‘land’ and the element of surprise was so strong, they couldn’t hang around for too long before moving on.
Without giving too much away, the Swings, and the Commando Crawl were hot favourites. (I’ve no idea of the real names of these zones, but these fit perfectly.)
A Sea of Glowing Orbs was best of all.
I definitely had to stop the kids racing ahead, or we would have been out in 10 minutes.
Hot tip: The one-hour package where you can go through as many times as you like would have been better value than normal entry. I’d definitely take that option, then after the first run through, the kids can go back and revisit their favourite zones.

Toadstool Rating for Odyssey Maze Auckland
It’s expensive. Very expensive. BUT it’s a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. Loads of laughs which makes the price worth it.
