Super cheap entry which is valid all day, very trippy and a bit of fun. I would do it at least once, it's on pier 39 so while you're there check it out. Kids would love it

Completely worth the $5 entrance fee. The friendly staff will give you plastic gloves so you do not smudge the mirrors. The maze is clean, well kept, and DIFFICULT! We got through the maze in about 7-10 minutes. Your admission grants you unlimited access.

How annoying. This attraction (although it is not worth being called an attraction) has 4.5 stars on Yelp. It is not a really bad ripoff at $5 USD, it is not worth the cab fare. Ok if you are on Pier 39 take the kids in, but it was a big disappointment to me.

A lot of fun for $5! We went through it twice and I felt really lost. It was very excellently done and the lighting was exceptional. Kids would love this!

Love this place. It's a small space but the lighting, mirror and effects really got us. We had a fun time just going around and looking at the other 1 to 5 replica of ourselves. My toddler even run into the mirror twice. He did not cry, just touch his forehead and continue. We love it

If you are open to try something different for the cup of your favorite coffee drink than this is for you. My two kids (ages 7 and 12) LOVED this. With the unlimited entrance the one ticket provides this Maze provided at least two hours of entertainment. The kids went through the Maze forward and backwards multiple times. I even... More

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.
