Alice's Curious Labyrinth

Follow Alice into her wonderland, meet some of its crazy inhabitants and get lost within thise one-of-a-kind hedge maze. But be careful around the Queen of Heart's castle: otherwise you might lose your head...

One of the many Disney attractions designed exclusively for Disneyland Paris Alice's Curious Labyrinth does not appear in any of the other Disney parks around the world. The Labyrinth was inspired by Disney's 1951 adaptation of Lewis Carrolls famous book. Guests encounter several characters from the film as they wind their way around the twisting and turning hedge flanked paths on the way to the Queen of Hearts castle at the centre.

The maze is divided into two sections, Passing through an ivy tunnel that represents the rabbit hole through which Alice fell leads guests into the first of these and starts their journey into Wonderland.

Once inside signs direct guests "This Way" or "That Way" there are tiny doorways, Leapfrog Fountains and sound effects through out. As guests start to wander deeper they will find the caterpillar smoking his pipe and the playing cards frantically painting the roses red.

So far it has been easy but from here guest can choose to exit the maze or proceed to the second section "The Queen of Hearts Maze" which is even more challenging. More special effects are never far away, this time it's the palace Playing Card Guards popping out from behind hedges to the shout of "Who goes there" or even the Queen herself appearing to cry's of "Off with your head" (in French of course). But with just a little perseverance guests can find their way the centre of the maze and the Queen of Hearts castle. Climbing the stairs gives a rewarding view of the park and offers an excellent picture opportunity.

Children will love the maze. With its varied characters hiding around each corner it offers just enough interest to keep their attention all the way to the centre. The option of being able to quit half way through is a great idea for younger children or foot sore adults.

Tips

Most of the labyrinth is more of a hedged path than a true maze, although there are several false turns and dead ends to be taken there is never any real danger of getting truly lost.

Nevertheless, keep an eye on your children if you don't want to get seperated.

Specials

"Alice in Wonderland" was born in 1862, when Charles Dodgson told the stories of Alice and her wonderland to a friend's daughters: Ina, Edith and Alice Liddell.

Dodgson was born on January 27, 1832 in the English town of Daresbury in Cheshire. He became a noted mathematician and had an interested in the art of theater, poems and the human form itself. In 1856 he published a little poem of its own under a name, thad made him world-famous: Lewis Carroll.

In the early 1860's, he used to spend some time with the young daughter's of Henry Liddell, a colleague of his. He usually was taking out the little girls and their mother to a nearby river, where they enjoyed a picnic. Especially Alice Liddell was very fond of the stories that Dodgson used to tell them. And that Alice became the inspiration to the one Alice, who would follow the white rabbit through its hole into Wonderland.

When "Alice in Wonderland" was published in 1865 under Dodgson's pen-name Lewis Carroll, it became an instant hit. In 1872 a sequel followed: "Through the Looking Glass and what Alice found there".

Dodgson died in 1898, but the name "Lewis Carroll" and the little girl named Alice would live on for many years to come...

Limits

The maze is suitable for most guests but does involve an 15 to 20 minute walk around its paths. If your feet are feeling particularly tired it may be an idea to skip this attraction in exchange for a relaxing trip aboard one of the it's small world boats just a short distance away.
