NEW YORK, NY - JUNE 05: People wait in line at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) on June 5, 2017 in New York City. Part of what the White House is calling the president's "infrastructure week," President Donald Trump announced Monday a plan to privatize the nation's air traffic control system. If enacted, it would remove the job of tracking and guiding airplanes from the oversight of the Federal Aviation Administration. (Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images)

Whoever came up with this was thinking way outside the box.  It’s like the LAST thing I’d want to do if I was catching a flight.  Changi Airport in Singapore is building two MAZES for people to walk around in during their layover.

One will be the largest HEDGE maze in Singapore.  The other is a maze of MIRRORS.  They posted a computer-generated video with mock-ups of the whole addition they’re building, and there’s a shot of the hedge maze in there.  It doesn’t look that hard, but still.

(It shows up at :33.)

Changi is consistently voted as the best airport in the world.  So we assume they’ve thought this through, and have a way to make sure people don’t get STUCK in the mazes and miss their flight.  The new space is set to open in early 2019.

Airports are often merely places to kill a couple of hours during transit, but Singapore's upcoming extension to its airport is going to make travellers want to hang out a little longer. Changi Airport just released teaser footage of its planned Jewel complex, a sprawling 134,000 square metre (approximately 33 American football fields) mall that'll open in 2019.
