Mysteries are intriguing by definition. New Town Plaza had top maze designer Adrian Fisher plan a transparent maze! Located at the Starlight Garden on level seven (Phase One), this transparent maze with intriguing twists and turns has more than 400 transparent walls covering more than 8,000 square feet. People can see where the exit is with the lights on, but it's not easy to get there. And in the dark the maze is lit up and transformed into a beautiful, ethereal sight with illuminations by noted German lighting architect Ben Busche. The Christmas maze can also be transmuted from time to time, so that visitors face varying degrees of difficulty and discover new surprises each time they visit. People can visit a designated website to get a maze password to qualify for the Ultimate Maze contest on January 25, 2015 for a grand prize of HK$10,000 worth of SHKP Mall coupons.
