Life-Size Pac-Man Maze Experience Coming to Texas in 2020

By  | 


In Houston on March 21, 2020, fans of Pac-Man will be able to escape a life-size maze developed for a unique, immersive experience. The Pac-Man Maze will be making a number of stops across the U.S. next year, but Houston is the only site in Texas where it will make a Lone Star State appearance.

In the 1980s, Pac-Man was all the rage for gamers who would make their way to local arcades (before the development and advancements in the type of at-home gaming systems we see today). As a result of its popular legacy, the Immersive Gaming Event Company will bring the Pac-Man Maze to Houston for locals to experience some of their childhood in a life-size way. The maze experience intends to bring the game to life for visitors who will have the ability to play the star character.

Similar to the gaming experience, this life-size Pac-Man maze allows guests to act out the same chase routines that the ghosts played in the 1980s video game. You can even “lose a life” like the original game. If you lose three, the fun’s all over! Guests to the maze will harvest fruit but will also be able to decipher a secret code for a difficult puzzle. If they escape the maze, they’ll enter a room with an ’80s theme, including fun, games, and activities from that time period. Prizes will also be offered to participants throughout their visit. Tickets for the maze start at $15, with date and locations listed at the link provided here. The official website for this Pac-Man experience is available here.
