About the Brain Teaser Puzzles
The brain teaser puzzles include separating linked objects and then reassembling them, arranging geometric shapes to form new ones, unraveling mathematical conundrums, and much more.  To solve these puzzles, visitors must use creative thinking and problem solving strategies such as looking for patterns, thinking ahead, setting aside preconceived ideas, and looking at problems from different perspectives. Visitors have been known to come back and try again if they don’t solve all the puzzles on their first visit!
