Dole Plantation's pineapple maze sets world record

WAHIAWA (KHNL) - One of Oahu's most popular visitor attractions has set a new record for the world's largest maze from the Guinness Book of World Records.

Dole Plantation's Pineapple Garden Maze, first debuted in 1998, once held the word record in 2001.  Since its expansion was completed last year, it earned back the title.

The expanded maze now occupies an area of more than two acres or 137,194 square feet.  It is made of 14,000 colorful Hawaii plants including hibiscus, heliconia, croton, panax and pineapple.  The center of the maze is in the shape of a huge pineapple.

"We've been planning this attempt for a while, but the process is quite involved and we wanted to be sure we had everything in order before we contacted Guinness," said General Manager Mike Moon.

The maze attracts both young and old visitors.
