Gold Coast Parking Meter puzzle Gold Coast Parking Meter puzzle Out of Stock





Edward Hordern Puzzle Exchange  - Gold Coast, Australia, August 2007
Presented by Brian Young.  Made by Brian Young @ Mr Puzzle Australia.  Designed by Brian Young.

The object is to get the 10c inside the parking meter.  Make sure you reassemble the parking meter with the 10c correctly inside.
Getting money out of a parking meter is usually illegal so please don't try to do that with this puzzle!

The puzzle does not easily slot into one of the regular Hordern or Slocum categories so we have called it a Sequential-Discovery puzzle. Yes, it is a Take-Apart puzzle. It is also a Put-Together puzzle. There are a number of different challenges you will have to complete to do the puzzle. No external tools are necessary for disassembly or reassembly of the puzzle, although you will have to find tools within, and determine how to use them, to complete the puzzle.

You can reassemble the puzzle in reverse using all the tools the same as when you took it apart. But there is a way of using one of the tools in a slightly different way to create an easier assembly. The puzzle will still be able to be disassembled the original way. See if you can find it...

Puzzle made from Yellow Leichhardt.  Stand made from Mackay Cedar.  Yellow Leichhardt was used because of it's distinctive bright yellow colour to try to match the golden colour that parking meters on the Gold Coast are painted. 
Size: 160mm x 30mm x 80mm.

Independant review of this puzzle: http://www.puzzlemad.co.uk/2011/11/gold-coast-parking-meter.html 

Click this link to view some photos from IPP27 Edward Hordern Puzzle Exchange. Brian generally stives to theme puzzles relating to where IPP is being held and because he was close to home this year he was able to go "all out" by having Sophie, a Gold Coast Meter Maid, as his very capable (and popular) exchange assistant.

Meter Maids were first seen in Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast in 1965 to try to help beat the bad image created by the installation of parking meters.  Gorgeous girls in gold bikinis fed coins into expired parking meters to prevent tourists from being fined, causing quite a controversy at the time.  They are still seen in Surfers today although they are generally hired by local businesses these days.
