IT'S THE FUN FAMILY ATTRACTION ON PHILLIP ISLAND. PERFECT FOR FAMILIES OR GROUPS LOOKING FOR THINGS TO DO ON PHILLIP ISLAND THAT EVERYONE WILL ENJOY. Words: JE Miller

When me and Mum walked up the quaint little board walk, I saw a great big tap above the roof of the building as well as a waterfall running down the outside wall. ‘Woah!’ I exclaimed to Mum. I’d never seen anything like that before! We giggled and stopped to look at the water and all the other amazing things. But if I thought outside was great… then we went inside! There was a bright and colourful café where mum had a latte while I had a really yummy cupcake. There were so many wonderful toys to play with and I could see Mum the whole time. I liked waving over at her and making her smile. We’d had a pretty long drive to get there, but everyone had said such amazing things about A Maze’N Things that we just had to go there. Mum took me to the counter where we bought our ticket from a beautiful lady who said she liked my jacket, then it was time for us to enter. Oh my goodness! It was such a huge indoor space with so much cool stuff to do!

It was so much fun and Mum and I laughed a lot! There were big puzzles and games, and I helped some awesome people work together to solve riddles and save the trains from crashing. Mum and I even found a real treasure! We went into a shrinking machine and I shrunk Mum, and then she shrunk me. It was very funny – pretending and being silly. We pressed our bodies onto a strange wall of these big weird red things, and when we walked around the other side, I could see Mum-andLucy shaped figures! There was this huge mirror maze that went on for ages. I held Mum’s hand, so that she didn’t walk into the mirrors. It was so pretty and very tricky. Sometimes, when we stood in just the right place, we could see about a hundred reflections of ourselves! Then, just when Mum and I thought that the day had finished, and that there was nothing more to see, we came to the entrance of Magic Manor. Little did we know, our day was just beginning.

We walked under a waterfall, down a dark passageway and were transported to another world. It was a little bit scary for Mum, but I gave her a cuddle and then she was ok. First there was a mysterious stone alleyway with lots of strange sounds, and I spotted little gremlins poking out of hidey places. Mum showed me all the interesting magical things and told me stories about them. I put my hand in and… well… Mum says real magicians never reveal their secrets, so I’d better not say. We found a secret passageway which led to… Mmm… I think it’s a secret. No, it’s too good not to tell you. It was this incredible room which reminded me of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. I’m not sure if you’ve ever heard of that place, but it’s from a story about a boy named Harry Potter. Mum’s been reading me books about him ever since I was a little baby. As well as the amazing ceiling, there were magic books and magic puzzles and… I really shouldn’t tell you anymore. But it was brilliant!
