Outwit your friends by designing the most difficult mazes!
Get lost in Maze Racers, a unique game that combines the frenzied excitement of racing with the creative challenge of design.

Maze Racers is a competitive and creative game with a unique two-phase structure. Not only do you have to quickly construct a labyrinth, you have to beat your opponent in a maze race once it’s completed.
You’ll feel pressure as you customize your circuitous course, knowing that your opponent is trying to stump you as well. Once you switch mazes, your focus will turn to tilting the board as quickly and carefully as possible while your opponent furiously races beside you.
The combination of construction and navigation make Maze Racers a fun and unique challenge!
Evenly divide up the 152 colored wall pieces to cleverly construct your maze, designating your start and end points with the half circle pieces. After you declare your maze complete, flip the included sand timer; your opponent now has one minute to finish their design before the race begins!
Once you swap boards, you and your opponent will simultaneously drop your wooden ball into the start point to commence the race. Your goal is to guide your ball to the end point and back before your opponent. After you declare victory, clear the board and design a new maze to keep your challenger lost. Play best two out of three to be the maze winner.
Maze Racers makes it easy to design your own maze using the included pieces. The magnetic strips on the bottom of the foam pieces anchor your walls to the board while still allowing you to make quick adjustments. The game even has two wooden spacers to ensure that passageways are large enough for the ball.
If you can both quickly build and solve a labyrinth, you’re truly an amazing maze master.
Frequently Asked Questions
Question: Do the maze walls move when the ball hits them?
Answer: The Maze Racers wall pieces are magnetic so they hold their ground as you move the board around but can be easily rearranged as you design your maze.
Question: How much time are you allowed to spend designing your maze?
Answer: There’s no set time limit on maze building. However, once one player finishes building the other player has just one minute to complete their maze. You have the option of imposing a time limit as well.
