Human-size mazes help people empathize with lab rats more easily than human-size mousetraps or human-size hunks of cheese. Feel closer to our furry brethren with today’s Groupon: for $19, you get an amazing value four-pack admission to Amazing Chicago's Funhouse Maze, located on Chicago’s historic Navy Pier (a $39.95 value).
More than one million adults and kids have lost and found themselves in Amazing Chicago's Funhouse Maze, which has been featured in the Chicago Tribune. The amazing value four-pack pass admits four people who can wander through the maze at their own pace or soar over it with wings cobbled together from pigeon feathers and wax. Guided by informative narration, guests give their sense of direction a workout with 4,000 square feet of mind-bending twists, turns, and tunnels. After dazzling their jaded eyes in the rainbow tunnel, guests experience the thrill of Amazing Chicago Funhouse Maze’s elevator drop. Participants can multiply their sense of self-identity in the mirror maze, and then confuse their senses in the psychedelic mine shaft and spinning light tunnel. Heroic adventurers can sound the alarms during a re-creation of the Great Chicago Fire in the blaze maze, before stomping out the inedible flames with fun, interactive technology. At the end of the maze, they can marvel at a simulated fireworks finale.
Guests can park their cars at Navy Pier’s facilities for $20–$24 per day, thwarting the maze-defeating plans of GPS–enabled vehicles. Amazing Chicago’s Funhouse Maze has summer hours Sunday through Thursday from 10 a.m.–10 p.m. and from 10 a.m.–midnight Friday and Saturday.
Amazing Chicago's Funhouse Maze on Navy Pier
In the Corridor of Confusion, one of Amazing Chicago's Funhouse Maze’s brain-teasing attractions, decoy doorways send participants in loops around the true path to the maze’s next stage. The entire maze totals 4,000 square feet of strobe lights, puzzles, and minor scares. Meanwhile, narration and interactive games give navigators a peek into unusual corners of Chicago’s history, such as its system of underground tunnels built between the home of every mayor and City Hall.
At their own pace, guests navigate through a classic mirror maze and down tunnels of spinning and dancing lights. Elsewhere, they brave the Big Squeeze, an intensely narrow hallway whose walls are all desperately trying to hug you. Visitors also try to find their way through Capone's Secret Vault Maze. Located on Navy Pier, the critically-acclaimed indoor maze is open year-round.
