Beginning April 4, visitors to THE MAZE in Cincinnati will have to dodge ghosts and collect pieces of fruit in a life-size maze. Aside from collecting fruit and avoiding ghosts, participants will also have to complete a coded “puzzle.”

If you’re the first one to finish the puzzle and complete the game, you’ll be placed at the top of the leader board and crowned the ultimate winner. However, if you’re caught by a ghost, you’ll lose a life. Lose three lives and you’re out.
