In the back, nearly two acres of rich, red earth have been turned into the world's largest maze (recognized by the Guinness Book of Records) with a path 1.7 miles long. It is built from 11,400 tropical plants, including hibiscus and fragrant plumeria; in the center is a garden in the form of a golden pineapple. Maze admission is USD5 for adults and USD3 for children ages 4-12. There is also the new Pineapple express.This two-mile 20 minute narrated train tour is great fun for kids and adults.
