This was one of the attractions that was included in our bundle deal. It was a very cool idea and the mirrors and lights were very cool, but we were at the end of the maze in less than 10 minutes. I just wish they would have made it longer or more challenging. We just turned around and went backwards back through it so that it would last longer. Be cautious with a little one---my little man wanted to take off running and bumped into the mirror! He was fine, but scared him.

You wear plastic gloves while walking though so many mirrored walls and turnstiles. Easy to get turned around! Good music plays while you wonder around.

We bought Ripley's passes while we were visiting Gatlinburg in September 2013 and this was one of the attractions we used our passes with. It was close to our hotel and so we decided to give it a try on a Monday morning.

The maze itself was fun. We had our 2 young daughters with us (ages 4 and 6) and so they enjoyed it quite a bit. But I was disappointed with the length of the maze. We went through it in five minutes. Then we went through it again, just to make the most of the experience. That was another five minutes. But the second time around wasn't as fun since you already knew what way to go. So I would say we got 5 minutes of fun out of this attraction.

The workers were very friendly and it wasn't crowded at all. But given all the other attractions there are in Gatlinburg, I would probably not do this again and try to find something that lasts a little longer. My daughters did like it and so it was worth it to go through it at least once. But once is enough.

This thing was the biggest disappoint AND ripoff we experienced in Gatlinburg. You spend a pile of money to walk around in this thing for about 5 minutes, not really much of a maze. This place is absolutely nothing but a tourist trap!!
