Wisconsin’s Biggest Life Size Maze Just Opened, And You’re Going To Want To Try It
There’s an awesome new attraction at McCarty Park on Milwaukee’s west side. Local folks have built a 10,000 square foot maze, the first of it’s kind in the area. Meant to be part of the community, family-friendly and fun, the Milwaukee Maze is pretty awesome and unique way to spend some time together.
The maze is the brainchild of a local couple and they're hoping that the location in West Allis won't be their last.
Newly opened, the maze asks entrants to find four different colored flags before making their way back out. Estimates say it should take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour.
The design is strategic - the panels are raised off the ground specifically so no one will feel too enclosed or lost.
Tickets are $10 and 15% of the cost goes back to Milwaukee County Parks.
The panels are reconfigured every couple of weeks so that no one can memorize the maze. Tickets are marked with a start time when you enter and you punch a hole at each of the four colored flags when you find them. Then your time is marked again when you exit.
There's a leaderboard to keep track of the fastest time, but there's also a phone number to call if you get lost in the maze and feel like you can't find your way out.
Folks have been decorating the while maze panels, though the owners say they'll probably be painted a bright color soon.
The maze has only been open a short time, but thus far, the reviews are raving. It's a truly unique Wisconsin attraction and it's fun for all ages.
Right now, the maze is open Wednesdays through Sundays from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. The plan is to be open through the summer, then shut down briefly in September before reopening with a haunted theme for Halloween. Plans for a December holiday theme are also in the works.
If you're looking for a test of your skills, a fun afternoon with your family and something you won't find anywhere else, this awesome locally-owned and operated maze is something you just have to check out.
The Milwaukee Maze is located inside McCarty Park, 8214 W Cleveland Ave, West Allis, WI 53219.
