The Pac-Maze

Navigate your way through a huge, luminous maze, avoiding ghosts to win prizes.

Losing yourself in a giant Pac-Man-inspired maze may or may not be your idea of the ultimate reality break, but it is something you'll actually be able to pencil into the diary when The Pac-Maze hits Brisbane on Friday, August 9 and Saturday, August 10. Yep, someone has created a human-sized version of the classic 80s arcade game that had you losing hours navigating tiny yellow Pac-Dots and avoiding ghosts.

As with most immersive, themed experiences happening across Australia these days, this one is popping up in a secret location — in New Farm, and ticket-buyers will obviously be told exactly where it is before the date. It's popping up for two days only, after adding a second day due to demand. Tickets are now on sale for sessions running hourly from 6–10pm on Friday night (when the fun will be restricted to adults only) and from 10am–11pm on Saturday.

The Pac-Maze comes courtesy of the same masters of nostalgia that brought you the adults-only Lego bar, The Brick Bar, which means you can expect a bunch of interactive fun that'll delight both your adult self and your inner kid.

Organisers are promising an immersive escape room-style experience, held within a huge, luminous maze, with the chance to score prizes if you're quick enough to elude those multi-coloured ghosts (aka Blinky, Pinky, Inky and Clyde). Once you've made it through, you can also hang out in an 80s-themed pixel room, play the original Pac-Man game how it was meant to be played, and dance to retro DJ-spun tunes.
