Camera Obscura & World of Illusions have given their magical Mirror Maze a mind-blowing make-over.
Visitors to Edinburgh’s favourite fun attraction can now lose themselves in this modern hall of mirrors. Discover the twists and turns in the over 25 meter long route (and that’s without getting lost!).
The state-of-the-art Mirror Maze magic comes from 38 new mirrors and over 6,500 individually programmable LEDs which light the way, creating mind-tricking patterns and colours, continually changing, for a truly discombobulating trail like no other! Visitors can lose themselves in the maze many times, each time getting a different sensory experience. The different experiences include themes such as ‘stormy’, ‘rainbow’, ‘heaven’ and ‘disco’.
The Mirror Maze is celebrating its 10th anniversary as one of the most popular exhibits at the top Edinburgh attraction. It is one of over 100 interactive exhibits visitors can get involved with, and includes the famous Vortex Tunnel, Ames Room and 165-year-old Camera Obscura itself.
General Manager Andrew Johnson said ‘We are excited to open our new Mirror Maze to visitors. As one of our top exhibits, we’re always looking for ways it can be improved. We’ve rebuilt it from the floor up: new mirrors, new even trickier route and new, totally programmable lighting. All 6,500 LED lights now change colour individually. Of course, in our Mirror Maze you have to multiply that by 1,000, so you are actually seeing 6.5 million lights, all changing to perplexing and pretty patterns around you. It’s fantastic to hear the screams of delight and laughter from visitors who have experienced the maze so far, it is proving to be an incredible success, already providing some of the best selfies for facebook!’
