No longer is it enough to merely find your way through the nearly impossible to navigate labyrinth, find the Throne Room. AVOID the Dragons hell bent on your demise, FIND the item you seek and then ESCAPE with your life…
Oh No… That’s just not enough anymore…
Nope, Now there’s Traps! Obstructions, PUZZLES to figure out in order to advance, MUMMIES who wander the halls and… AND.. AND….
A Scripted Health Meter and Combat Aspects!!
*You’ll be provided a weapon scripted to be used to fight off those Mummies that stalk you in their never ending thirst for LIFE FORCE….. AHHHHHHHHH
You can DIE in there… EEEEEEEEEEEEK!
The Various Traps, The Mummies, Deadly Gas… The Dragons…. All of it can effect your health and if you DIE… (eeeeeeek), You will be transported back outside to the Start of the Maze to start over!
Along the way , you’ll find Health Power-Ups to regain your lost vitality as you employ new tactics, logic and SHEER FORCE OF WILL to overcome the Maze and its obstacles!
This is by far the MOST Challenging Maze that’s ever been built & easily the most fun as well!
So come on out Saturday and try your hand or cheer your friends on as brave maze raiders attempt to emerge victorious and in ONE PIECE!
Trophies! Prize Monehs! Dragon Maze Glory!
We’ll go over full details before the event starts & a sneak peek at some of the rules can be seen in the graphic above.
