CLAPPING AT THE CENTER

The children have discovered a phenomenon in the centre of our Nelson Labyrinth! Full of delight, clapping in joy and listening for the Labyrinth’s response, they watch the eyes of near-by adults get bigger when their claps echo back! The high-pitched squeaky echo is subtle, but very distinct. It sounds the loudest when the clap is made over the very centre brick...

 

And it remains a mystery.

SCIENTIFIC EXPLANATION?

 

We’re not the only one.

This mysterious phenomena is happening at other Labyrinths as well.

Regardless of the explanation,
the joy and wonder it brings to anyone who hears the squeak
is a phenomenon in an of itself.
