Hey it's Olivia here, on the 3rd day of our trip we woke up in Lake Wanaka, so all of us just got ready and away we went. First all of us went into town where we saw an amazing timeline. It started in the year 0, and finished in the year 2000 (when i was born!!!!!!).
We all went wandering and found ourselves looking at tikis and bookmarks. I bought a bookmark and so did bex and jess also got a bookmark and a gift for her friend. We hopped into the campervan and away we went to Puzzling World. Dad insisted on taking more pictures outside of the building, there was a Leaning Tower of Wanaka and if we stood in the right place you looked like we were lifting it up, look!
When we got in the first thing i noticed was the ceiling it was like a mirror but it looked all squiggly. So we got tickets and went through the door, first thing to do was the holograms where you look at a picture thing from three metres away and it changes like there was a women that wasn't smiling and you move side to side and she is smiling, so cool. My favourite thing was when there is a room and you stand in a corner and on one side you are tiny in the other you are so big, did you know they used the technique in the Lord of the Rings. Look how much taller than Bex I am!
We then did the maze - with a competition to see who could find all four towers first. Not sure who won - but I know it wasn't Dad (he would still be in there if it wasn't for us!).
There were lots of rooms with optical illusions - including rooms where it appeared as if water was running up hill!
