2. The Maze of the Lost City

To get to the entrance of the Maze, one must enter from the Entertainment Centre and cross a suspended bridge.  The Maze of the Lost City has been designed to look like old abandoned Mayan ruins and covers an area of 2200 square metres.  The Maze of the Lost City is quite challenging as all the walls look the same, and as they are concrete and high you cannot see over them.  To assist you with your progress through the maze there are small holes in the walls where you are able to see the exit and which way you need to go. It can take anywhere from 15 minutes to up to an hour to make your way out of the maze, however never fear as there are emergency exits located throughout the Maze.  At the end of the Maze there is a refreshment area that houses the Pilanesburg Craft Brewery and the Brewers rooftop as well as the Maze lookout.
