Self-defined as an amazing 'sensory-experience', the maze is basically 4000 square feet of halls with names like Blaze Maze, Big Squeeze and Stomp it Out. The maze is great fun for families on vacation, and all the attractions are appropriate for children. Visit the mirror hall (you will be warned to keep your hands in front of you unless you want to bump into your own mirror image) or stomp out the cyber flames of the Great Chicago Fire (on a huge computer screen). In short, it's a pretty good way to spend time on the Pier.

Address:
Navy Pier, 600 E. Grand Ave

Price:
Around $11 for adults and $9 for children, but they also have package admissions which are somewhat cheaper

Opening Hours:
Opens at 10 AM and closes after 8 PM, sometimes at 10 PM, depending on the season.
