The Hawaiian Pineapple Company was founded in 1901 by James Dole, who opened his first pineapple plantation in the central plateau of the Hawaiian island of Oahu. The 2001 <I>Guinness Book of World Records</I> lists the pineapple maze at the Dole Plantation on Oahu as the world's largest maze.
Tips for Families
In addition to the pineapple-shaped maze (made up of tropical plants), kids will love the 20-minute Pineapple Express train ride, which provides more information about the plantation's past.

Life-size maze!Flag review
Remember that scene from "The Shining"? I know that's a weird way to start a review of a kids' attraction, but the shrubbery maze in that movie the first thing that comes to mind when you see this life-size maze of pineapple, hibiscus and other tropical plants that comes up so high you feel like a rat trying to get to the cheese in the center (only in this case, you're trying to get to a big pineapple design in the middle). You can also get pineapple shakes and learn a little about how pineapples are grown--but the main attraction here is definitely the maze. Fun!
Tips for Families
Don't let your kids go on their own--it's easy to get lost, and claustrophobes need not apply.
