Tilburg: Entry Ticket to Doloris' Meta Maze

1. Tilburg: Entry Ticket to Doloris' Meta Maze

Embark on an adventure and visit Doloris' Meta Maze in the city of Tilburg which is unlike the traditional hedge pathways in Baroque gardens or plastic indoor playgrounds. While it is built to make you lose your orientation, it also fulfills you with the immense joy of discovering something new. Entering the Meta Maze, you find a sheer multitude of surreal rooms where you can dive through dream-like landscapes, profoundly strange spaces, and flabbergasting art pieces, all integrated into one big creation. It’s sometimes dark but never made to frighten the visitor, but rather encourage them to pause and marvel. Take your time, as there’s surely enough to discover inside. Witness this unique activity that cannot be properly described by words, you need to see with your own eyes. The Meta Maze was created by the Berlin-based artist platform Karmanoia. The Meta Maze is nested into a larger event space called Doloris. On the rooftop, there is a bar and restaurant serving excellent street food and providing a fabulous scenic view over the city of Tilburg.

Excellent theme park. We really enjoyed our two day visit. The rides are top quality with plenty to do round the park. The park was fairly busy but the ride queues were not too long. Food and drink prices were reasonable and staff friendly. A recommended day out

Excellent themed park, the attention to detail is impressive (in the positive sense of the term). Park suitable for all age groups. Tip: it takes 2 days to calmly enjoy all the attractions since the park was built inside a gigantic forest with wonderful trees.

Go to the Efteling for a lower price. Scan the code at the entrance, just like a normal ticket. Only downside is, that the ticket is valid for that specific day.

Let me keep it short. Its completely worth the time and money. Oh and don't for get to buy a parking ticket.

Very unique experience that you really have to experience once!
