Get Lost in the Black Hills Maze
Built of Douglas fir and covering 39,000 square feet, the maze consists of 1.2 miles of walkways, and it has 4 second-level bridges and 4 second-level towers.
How do you find your way out of a giant, life-sized maze? One way is to climb the towers and get an aerial view of where you’re headed. Another is to buddy-up with a pal and work together. But the best way is to just have fun, let yourself get lost in the whirlwind of excitement. So bring a friend or go at it alone, but either way, make sure to pay attention and work hard to get to the end of the famous Black Hills Maze.
More Fun for All
The maze isn’t just about getting lost. The Black Hills Maze has so much more to offer, so come on out for a whole day of fun. Check out some of these other activities while you’re there:
