The Maze of the Lost City
The Maze of the Lost City at Sun City has been designed and constructed to resemble a semi-ruined Mayan stone maze, in keeping with the theme of the of The Lost City and the Valley of the Waves. The Maze covers an area of 2200square metres and is a challenging experience and great fun for everyone.
The Maze is reached by crossing a 90m long suspension bridge from the Sun City Entertainment Centre. The bridge is, itself, carefully engineered for absolute safety by UNREAL The Company, who operates the world-famous Zip2000 zip slide. As you cross the suspension bridge you enjoy splendid views of the Palace of the Lost City, the Bridge of Time and the valley of the waves. Then the path takes you through indigenous bush veld until you come to the entrance of The Maze of the Lost City.
Once you are in the Maze you will find the paths confusing, with many false trails that end in a blank stone wall. You backtrack and try again, only to be frustrated once more. Slowly you work your way through the Maze, sometimes even seeing the exit but unable to get to it. It’s more difficult than it seems!
In the Maze there are small holes where you can view what is just the other side of the wall but so difficult to get to. Otherwise there are those ruined walls, too tall to see over and, unlike hedge mazes, maize mazes and other mazes, impossible to see through or over. Slowly you work your way through the Maze until you reach your destination, the exit and the refreshment area - The Brewers Roof and The Maze Lookout where you can enjoy a cold beer, soft drink, ice cream or light snacks HD live sport and fantastic views of the Sun City resort.
Typical times for getting through the Maze are anything from 10-15 minutes up to an hour. For those who give up there are emergency exit gates. And for those who don’t want to go through the Maze there is a ”quick in” path which leads straight to the refreshment area and the toilets.
