Both Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge are full of things to do, places to go, and definitely things to “see” like the creative mirror mazes where things aren’t always what they seem. Find out more about these attractions with a little “reflection” on what each maze has to offer. Each attraction is open daily.
Amazing Mirror Maze – 919 Parkway, Gatlinburg
Amazing is exactly what to expect when entering the Amazing Mirror Maze, the largest in Gatlinburg at over 2,400 square feet. Challenge your senses as you enjoy the visual journey of a state-of-the-art show with colorful lights and pulsating music. With so many images leading the way, you won’t know which way to turn (which is the whole point of the maze).
Before entering, you’ll put on plastic gloves, to prevent anyone from leaving smudge marks and fingerprints on the glass as clues pointing you in the right direction – and there’s a lot of touching mirrors and people in this game, trying to decide which is real. Never fear, there is an emergency exit with an alarm if you can’t find your way out. The maze takes about 15 minutes or more, and while on the premises you can re-enter the maze as many times as you like.
Ripley’s Mirror Maze – 800 Parkway, Gatlinburg
Believe It or Not! Ripley’s has what it takes to show you plenty of smiles on the reflected faces of those traversing the maze. Come face-to-face with yourself, multiple times, along with the faces of other adventure seekers as each of you attempts to navigate the maze from start to finish. Lights on the floor and ceiling reflect flashing colors that add to the surreal challenge. Add a pair of 3-D glasses and take the excitement to another level of fun.
On average, it takes about 10 minutes to find your way out. You don’t have to worry about getting lost as there’s an emergency exit and the staff does periodic checks. Each ticket allows entry into the maze, again and again, up until midnight on the day of your visit.
