Absolutely loved this, a great way to entertain family members of all ages. You pay €10 each and can revisit any many times as you want on the same day. We had tons of fun and took some great photos. Highly recommended.

For $5, this was a fabulous experience. We have a small child and she loved it. We loved watching her try to find her way through the maze. We ended up coming back to the entrance a few times, but finally found our way to the exit. Was worth it, and a very different experience.

This is totally worth the $5 entry fee. We are a couple in our late twenties and had fun doing this. It would be great for families and kids. Have a go!!

We were just about to walk in (Nov 12, 750pm), when a new rap song started playing super loud, and within 30 seconds it was blasting very explicit and racist lyrics. We heard 3-4 f* words and as many n* words before we could get out of earshot.

This is a family friendly (looking) establishment right in the middle of Pier 39. If management reads this, please put a music policy in place. We definitely didn't want to support or hear such filthy music.

If you love mirror mazes, this is the one to try. The fluorescent colors and the black lights make it visually appealing than regular mirror maze rooms. It's not too large, but large enough that you will probably have fun for about 10-15 minutes. A $ saving tip: go to the visitor's center on the 2nd floor of Pier 39 and get the discount coupon book. There is a coupon book that has a coupon for 20% off at this place. At the time, the admission was $5 per person and if I had known about the coupon, I could have saved a little. You can get that coupon book by cutting out the coupon at the back of the Pier 39 brochures you get at most hotels and tourist brochure shelves. This coupon must be redeemed to get that coupon book. If you can't find it, just ask the tourist center if you can get a coupon book with your AAA card (I don't know if that will work, but try it if you can't find that Pier 39 travel brochure).

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 challenged my oldest to go through it with no hands. This is money well spent.

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 the exit. We finally followed two teenage girls who claimed to have gone through 3 times and we made it out. We then helped others out since I am an excellent Maze Master. Just don't tell nobody about my helpers. Fun event, excellent location, no lines, and affordable outing for a couple, family,or just friends. "Get Lost" you'll enjoy yourself.

What a weird, surprisingly awesome place. For five bucks a head, you get to walk around for as long as you want in a giant room of mirrored passageways and glow in the dark paint while speakers blast early 90s alternative rock. I came here expecting very little, but my kids absolutely loved it. I'll admit, I did as well.

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 is full of loud music and flashing colored lights, which if you are sensitive to such things might make you want to stay away, but gives it an awesome atmosphere and adds to the disconcerting effect. They stamp your hand when you pay, and showing the stamp allows you to go through the maze again an unlimited amount of times on that same day. My brother and I went three times - early in the afternoon when we were first exploring the area, later that night while our parents waited for a table at a restaurant across the pier, and after dinner. It's a really great deal - $5 for unlimited entry. In comparison, the mirror maze at the nearby Ripley's Believe It or Not is about $10. This place may look kind of silly or tourist-trap-y, but it's really a lot of fun, and for only $5 go ahead and do it.
