Harder than it looks

Cost $5 for multiple entries on the same day. Overall length of the maze is not long, but it's possible to get lost. Bottom line, Worth the visit if you are already there.

The space is actually pretty small but I happened to get into a dead end every minute. The spinning colorful lights which were meant to confuse made me very dizzy. A little hint is that the exit is pretty much a 180 turn with a slight detour. The best part was when I kept on scaring myself with the mirrors.

My family was visiting Pier 39, saw this, and decided to give it a try. The maze is pretty tricky - they keep the mirrors really clean so there are no smudges to easily give away whether you are looking at a mirror or an opening. To keep it this way, they make you wear disposable gloves. Anyway, the place... More

We spent over an hour walking the maze over and over again and despite every effort. We struggled to get through the maze without ending up in a dead-end corner time and time again. The design of the maze and the inclusion of gloves to avoid everyone dirtying the mirrors is excellent. If you visit Pier 39, a visit to... More

Interesting tourist stop. Inexpensive, fun, easy to get to. It was not an over the top experience, but it was fun.

I was joking when I told the wife to "Get Lost". She took it literally and booked a trip to Magowan's Infinite Mirror Maze in SF at Pier 39. Upon arrival, the situation appeared very simple and easy enough for a child to accomplish. Boy was I wrong........30 minutes in and we were still circling the entrance nowhere close to... More

We had supper on the harbour and wanted to go here afterwards and check it out. I checked their web site and was trying to find out when they closed - they don't list it on their site or an E-mail address to contact and ask them. We found the place and walked up and met another group that said... More

Ok, so it’s not San Fran or even Pier 39’s biggest attraction but it’s fun, it’s cheap and it’s a good way to kill a bit of time and have a laugh at the same time. I went with my girlfriend and we’re both in our early 30’s so it’s not just for kids, definitely go with someone else though... More

It took us 3 minutes to navigate this maze. It was easy and not much fun. It is likely worth it if you have kids and happen to be at fisherman's wharf. It isn't worth a special trip.

Just spent the last 15 mins in the maze. Worth a visit for kids and young couples. I went back to rescue my wife cos she was trapped! Its a easy maze plus multiple entry. Kids would love it!
