As the name would imply, the egg hunt is awesome and there’s a maze involved. It’s not just any maze. The VanDusen hedge maze is made of 3,000 pyramidal cedars and rivals the great mazes of yore, like Cardinal Wolsley’s famous Hampton Court labyrinth.
But let’s get to the chocolate. This is how the egg hunt works. Families work together to solve rhyming clues. In the process of the scavenger hunt, they work as a team and learn all about the award-winning VanDusen Botanical Garden. And at the end, when they’ve found the Easter Bunny’s secret hiding place, they exchange their scavenger hunt answers for Purdy’s chocolate!
