So get ready to squirm, slither, crawl, jump and bend as you maneuver your body through Ripley’s very own brand new Laser Maze!

You expertly navigate through the web of lasers, going over and under lasers as quickly as possible to reach the end of the Maze. As you navigate beyond the final laser beam, you press a stop button which completes your challenge and determines your time/score.
