My recent visit to Mystery Maze

No Comments

I’m not sure how long it has been around for, but Mystery Maze at the end of Oneida Lane (just off Clifton Hill) in Niagara Falls is something I remember from many years ago. It has been spruced up a bit over the years (nothing new this year), but the basic premise is the same. You enter the maze and race to reach 4 checkpoints and then find the exit.

A couple of weeks ago my family went. As we were walking towards it my 9-year-old daughter was terrified that see was going to get lost in the maze. I promised her it was safe, and that she could even crawl under the wall partitions if she needed to. Once we got inside, she was thrilled. She and I raced around trying to beat her two brothers.

As you can see by the card at the end of this post, at each check point you are to stamp your card to prove that you found each checkpoint. Then you try to find the finish line. We found the four checkpoints very quickly, but then just couldn’t find the stairs to go up and get to the exit.

Of course, my two sons decided to cheat… they found one of the walkways (the wrong one) and then just stepped over the railing. No fair!!

It’s kind of funny… you pay money to go on an attraction, and then you try to finish it as fast as you can 🙂

The attraction is kind of pricey on its own, but there is a combo pass that gets you a variety of admissions for $15-$35 (depending on how many attractions you want to go into).

Gearing up for the Grand Prix

From the Niagara Falls Review:

Project SHARE is gearing up for the 15th annual Niagara Falls Review SHARE Grand Prix.

The go-kart race, to be held May 13 at Niagara Go-Karts and Mini-Putt, has become a popular spring event and is a major fundraiser for the charity.

“We have a really great following for this event, with numerous racing teams that return annually,” said Katie Cuviello, fundraising coordinator at Project SHARE.

A team from Chippawa Presbyterian Church was the top finisher last year and the church has also been the top fundraiser for the past eight years.
