Dole Plantation: The Maze

Shaped like a pineapple, this permanent botanical maze features 2.5 miles of paths and 14,000+ Hawaiian plants. It's not easy to find your way around, but you'll have fun trying. Named the world's largest maze by Guinness World Records in 2008!

The Dole Plantation—about 10 minutes away from historic Haleiwa town—is one of Oahu's most popular tourist destinations, with its overflowing gift shop full of pineapple souvenirs and fresh pineapple ice cream. Visitors are drawn in by the chance to behold the dazzling colors of ripening tropical fruit and revel in the aroma of sweet ripe pineapples ready to be picked, as well as to ride the “Pineapple Express” train through the plantation. Within the Dole Plantation, however sits another attraction that is equally popular in its own rite—the gigantic Pineapple Maze.

One of only a few permanent botanical mazes in the United States, The Dole Plantation Maze is laid out in the shape of a gigantic pineapple (even its colors are accurate) and spans more than three acres, including 2.5 miles of paths as well 14,000 Hawaiian plants. Maze visitors will enjoy trying to find the eight secret checkpoints within the maze where you can collect stencils to show your progress!

Bring sunscreen or a parasol! Even though getting mixed up and turned around is part of the fun, nothing will dampen your spirits faster than being overheated, sunburned, and lost.

This is a challenge and when it's hot, you don't really want to finish, but it's fun just trying. My 5 year old loved it.

Comments about Smart Destinations Dole Plantation: The Maze:

My 3.5 yr old daughter was our guide and she found our first 4 checkpoints all by herself and she was so excited. I don't think ive every seen her so happy, and i spoil my kids so that really says something. It did take a long time with her leading so eventually we did the finding but made her feel like she was doing it and it was a blast.

Very fun
By Marcus from Garland, TX on
Pros:
Challenging
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Dole Plantation: The Maze:

This was fun, but very challenging. The record is 8 minutes and it took my wife and I 51 minutes. lol However, the hedges are hibiscus plants, so there are flowers everywhere, complete with butterflies and birds, so there is plenty to look at as you get lost. Try to do it as early as possible, as there is no shade in the maze. Or, get some pineapple ice cream to eat while you're in there.
