“Limited Fun”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

I got a Living Social deal for the Funhouse Maze at $5 per person. This cheaper price helped a bit considering it was a rather quick trip through this maze. It reminded me more of a carnival spook house, rather than a real maze. The maze part was small, as well as the rest of the attraction. We took a 9 year old and 6 year old. They both thought it was fun and went through it with little to no fear. The 6 year old held my hand at the beginning, but quickly went with her brother ahead of my husband and me. Our deal did include a free ticket for "Time Freak" which is a 1 minute race hitting buttons that light up and competing against another team. All in all the Funhouse Maze attraction was a good time, but could have been much more for the price. I certainly wouldn't have paid full price for this experience!

“Short trip funhouse”
Reviewed 31 March 2013 via mobile

Took a trip into the Funhouse very short maybe five minutes long not worth the 9.99 A person. Visible sign "not for children under five" I had an 11-year-old and a seven-year-old who were terrified.

“Ok but don't plan to spend the day”
Reviewed 3 December 2012

Funny moment. We payed for both attractions. 13 year old son appreciated the activity. We had a good time together there. But as a whole, including paying at the cashier, we spent 35 minutes in the place. So it's not very expensive, but you don't get that much for your money. If you know and accept that, it's ok. Not Disneyworld but some fun.

“Fun, we loved it.”
Reviewed 14 November 2012

My husband and I went through with our 14 yr old son, and we all loved it. The price is a little high but you're in a tourist location, that is to be expected When we emerged, we were all laughing and talked about for a while after. The maze is entertaining, great for teens and adults. I don't think it would be too good for the younger kids. Overall it was worth it. We did the time freak after the maze and it was free with the maze. I wouldn't purchase time freak but as a bonus for the maze, it was fun.
