Here is my semi-spoiler free review of the maze (I address the rumors I heard), then, further down a full walkthrough, separated in case people don't want to read both:
Overall, it was a lot of fun. The worst part was definitely the anticipation of it all and not knowing what was in the next room. We all jumped a few times, but no one broke down and said the safe word. The rumors are true that you have to touch things, eat things, and solve puzzles, but it was nothing over the top. The big question: was it worth $60? We had six people and I would say for $10 per person, I would definitely do it again next year. I really enjoyed the "interactive" aspect of it all. I do have to note that everyone in our group said "That was it?" after we went out the exit. We all asked each other whether one of us had said the safe word without the rest of the group knowing. Also, it only took us about 15 minutes, not 30 like other people were saying.
Walkthrough (I try not to include the solutions to the puzzles/tasks):
Our reservation was at 10:30 and we arrived shortly before that. We had to sign a waiver that seemed like one big joke to create hype for the maze. When we got called in, we waited in the first room (plain black curtains all around) for our Knott's guide to explain the rules to us. She explained that the safe word is "Boysenberry" and that if anyone says it at all EVERYONE is escorted out. She also explained that we would be asked to perform tasks to get to the next room and not become "trapped" forever.
With that, she escorted us to the bathroom. Yes, the first room was a stinky, crap smeared bathroom filled with 5 stalls with closed doors. Our group of six virtually sprinted across the room the get to a solid wall so that nothing could jump out behind us. Then, a janitor slammed through one of the stalls and yelled at us to "Get the **** out of there!" After performing a certain task involving a toilet, a locked stall opened up and we moved on to the next room.
Rats. This was the room we had been dreading. It was small and filled with tons and tons of small wire cages that squeaked and rattled. It was dark, and a sign in the corner said "Do Not Pet This Rat." Needless to say this is exactly what we had to do to proceed. After a lot of prodding, one of our group members disobeyed the sign which made a very short door open up. As we crouched and walked through, we found ourselves (6 full grown people) in a very small, very short cage! Yes, claustrophobia was tested a few times in this maze. After a couple of surprises in the cage, the other side opened up and let us through.
The kitchen. A large bearded (wo)man greeted us and told us (s)he had been cooking all day for us, and that we MUST try her cooking to move on. This was definitely one of my favorite rooms, the scare actor was GREAT in here. My wife was "chosen" to eat Dish A or Dish B, she picked B. She looked at me, crestfallen, when she saw what it was, and I stepped up and took the hit for her. (I really don't want to spoil what the choices were, and I stress its not something you would normally eat but its nothing alive and it really was NOT that bad.) The kind, bearded chef allowed us to leave through the refrigerator.
We stepped into a room full of mirrors with a ghostly figure appearing in several of them. The ghostly figure dares you to say something (which I'm fairly certain we all said in a room with a mirror, in the dark, as a pre-teen/teenager), in order to progress to the next room.
We found ourselves in a small, plexiglass cage with a menacing man standing just on the other side of the glass. He slammed on the glass and explained this was the puzzle room. We had to push the sections of plexiglass around in order to solve the puzzle and reveal the door to the next room. There are two important points you have to hit to solve the puzzle, that's all I will reveal.
The penultimate room turned out to be the morgue. A dead body lay on an autopsy table with a sheet draped over him. There was a coffin on one side of the room and 4 small, square doors on the other wall (the ones with the pull out metal table that they keep dead bodies in). A tape player in the corner had a note that said "Push Play", naturally, we did. It was the autopsy notes for the man on the table, they said that something had gone wrong and this man wasn't actually dead, and with that the body on the table sat straight up. He got off the table, making no eye contact with anyone, and went straight for the small, square doors on the far wall. He opened two of them and beckoned for two of our group to lay down. Then, he slid them in and shut the door. After that, he went to the coffin and beckoned for me to lay down. When I got in, he closed the top, and I was plunged into darkness.
I won't spoil the very end, though I will say it had us all saying "That was it?"
