TELUS World of Science opens Mazes & Brain Games, a new puzzle exhibit in Edmonton

By Jannah Jumamil on October 31, 2023

Mazes & Brain Games is the newest exhibition at the TELUS World of Science. The exhibition includes over 60 interactive puzzles, mazes and illusions for kids and adults.

“It’s a great way for people of all ages to explore problem solving, have some fun with challenges and brain games. And of course, explore a couple of different full-size mazes as well. It’s a good way to have some fun, explore math concepts and really just use your whole body to explore science and math,” said Constance Scarlett, President and CEO of the TELUS World of Science.

It’s the first time Mazes & Brain Games has been to Alberta. The exhibition was created by Minotaur Mazes, and the TELUS World of Science worked closely with them to figure out the floor plan.

Mazes & Brain Games has three highlights:

  • Maze of Illusions – The largest full-body maze in the exhibit with illusions in every corner.
  • Giant Tower of Hanoi – Visitors can try to maneuver full-sized discs to solve the puzzle.
  • David Anson Russo Gallery – These large paintings line up the walls in the exhibit, and each one is a puzzle itself.

“This is one of the best ways to learn types of things because the kids are engaged already. They come here, they just want to have fun right, and often times, they might not even realize how much they’re learning about logic and persistence, and how the human brain works and how they themselves learn,” said Trevor Prentice, Director of the Science Experience at the TELUS World of Science.

Mazes & Brain Games is open to the public until early 2024, and ticket prices start at $21.95 for students.
