Disclosure: My family and I received complimentary tickets to Ripley’s Mirror Maze. All opinions are our own.
Have you ever visited Ripley’s Mirror Maze labyrinth of mirrors and LED lights? If not, you’re in for an affordable treat! The maze isn’t super long but it is fun. We took our kids there a few months ago and they loved it!
The Mirror Maze is just what it sounds like, a maze of mirrors. And lights. Because the walls are glass mirrors, they have a box of gloves in the entrance. Once you scan in your ticket, put on a pair of rubber gloves and start your maze tour.
Even with all the lights, it is really dark and you can barely see your hand in front of your face! Everywhere you turn is your reflection and lights that go on for ever. You literally have to feel your way around, hence the gloves. (no fingerprints to constantly clean!)
All the lights look like millions of tiny stars.
The pathways/hallways are all red and make everything in there look red. It’s kind of creepy with all that red! As you can see in the photo, it can be really confusing going through. The pathways look like they go off in all directions when in reality, there is only one true path. There are a couple spots where you can go right or left but they wind back in the same main path.
Another room had a mirror spot in the floor that made it look like you were going to fall in. Our 4 year old daughter freaked out a little. She was a little scared and we had to pick her up and move her past that spot. Once we were able to explain that it was just the effect from the mirrors, she was fine and ready to continue on. I’m not sure if you can see in the middle of the photo below or not. But that is the area she got scared in. We were the only ones going through at the time so I used my flash so you could see better what all the mirrors look like.
We thought the maze itself could be a little longer. We seemed to go through it fairly quickly. The reflections, however, just go on and on and on…

Even though our daughter was a little scared in one spot, she said she wants to go back the next time we go. We all had a great time and even though we wish the maze was a little bit longer, we can’t wait for our next trip through the Ripley’s Mirror Maze in Gatlinburg, Tennessee!
