ABSTRACT

Maze parks are one of the oldest tourist attractions throughout the world. Visitors to the maze park experience flow when they are totally focused on strolling the maze. This study focused on Self-Determination theory as related to flow theory. The purpose of this study is to identify the influence of the three need variables(autonomy, competence and relatedness) on the flow experience of a maze park visitor. This study used a survey method to collect data from 305 visitors in the Jeju Kimnyeong Maze Park based on the convenience sampling technique. Frequency, reliability, and correlation analyses were performed using SPSS WIN 19.0 and AMOS 21.0. A statistical package was used to test the research model and hypotheses. The results indicate that autonomy and relatedness significantly influence the flow experience. However, flow experience is not influenced by competence variables. The results of the analysis show that autonomy and relatedness are important for the flow experience of maze park visitors. Based on these findings, academic and practical implications were further discussed in the concluding section.
