World Wide Maze
is a "Chrome Experiment" that turns any website or search into a playable three-dimensional "Monkey Ball"-style maze game. You can control via the keyboard or link to your phone to turn it into a tilt-sensitive remote control. (Chrome browser only, obviously.)

Following the death of his sister to brain cancer, Motoi Yamamoto
adopted salt as his primary artistic medium. In Japanese culture salt is not only a necessary element to sustain human life, but it is also a symbol of purification
. He uses salt in loose form to create intricate labyrinth patterns
on the gallery floor or in baked brick form
to construct large interior structures. As with the labyrinths and unnavigable passageways, Motoi Yamamoto
views his installations as exercises which are at once futile yet necessary to his healing.

Fun: Maze Stopper 2
, help your character reach the flag first by placing obstacles for your opponent(s). You are scored by how much faster you are than your opponent. There is a "Freeze" tool to make placing obstacles easier. There is a walkthrough for when you get stuck, and if you're anything like me you will.

- "The Escape" - can be found inside an old bank in Madrid. A "live immersive gaming" experience, its players try to "escape" equipped only with a networked PDA and their wits. Think of it as a cross between the Tactile Dome
and The Game
, with a bit of Myst
and a dash of Cube

From the annals of the Internet: Before there was The Riddle
, there was this "virtual space in the shape of a book"
based on the quaintly illustrated Maze
by Christopher Manson. Find the shortest path in and out of the maze, from Room 1 to Room 45 (the center) and back. At Room 45 is another riddle, whose answer is concealed somewhere in that shortest path, which, if you are clever, you can make in only 16 steps. "Anything in this space might be a clue. Not all clues are necessarily trustworthy."

This was mentioned once before a year ago
but I missed out on the fun of the thread. It's that time of year again. This year there's over one hundred and thirty
locations. Since farming alone doesn't bring enough money in for many, I guess tourism & entertainment is a nice sideline for some farmers. Gee whiz! It looks like fun! Any Texan
MeFites interested in a road trip?

Haunted House = No STDs!
"As visitors make their way through a dimly lit, S-shaped maze, they view startling, full-color photos of canker sores and genital warts on male and female genitalia infected with syphilis, chlamydia or gonorrhea. An empty casket at the end sends a message that death awaits anyone who does not practice safe sex."

Get lost in the Maize!
To me, Fall means pumpkins, pumpkin pie, turning leaves, and the annual trip to the cornfield maze! See if the one near you
has a haunted maze the few weekends before Halloween. (Advice: Bring a map. It's actually quite challenging, and calling for the Corn Cops to get you out is embarrassing.)
Every year I take a bunch of friends or co-workers to the maze, and to this day, this is my favorite bonding experience. What's your favorite teambuilding experience?
