Rarely — but sometimes — the weather turns chillier than normal in Myrtle Beach. That's when parents look for indoor entertainment to get the kids out of the house and give them a chance to blow off some steam.
And when that time comes, there's just one choice. Sure, there are several exciting, intriguing and fun indoor attractions in Myrtle Beach. But there is just one that is also chaotic and mind-bending.
No other place serves up the adrenaline rush found inside the Backstage Mirror Maze. Five seconds in and your family will discover how easy it is to become dazed, dazzled, confused and lost.
Imagine snaking through 2,000 square feet of continuous circles, regularly bumping into dead ends, and finding surprises each time a corner is turned. The confusion's made worse by bright rainbow-colored lights that fill up the void, and the kids are soon tricked into going the wrong direction by their own reflection!
After you and the kids have worked your way through that chaos, a laser challenge awaits.
Fans of bank heist movies love the fantasy and challenge of "The Vault" laser maze. It's a time-machine crime spree torn from the headlines of March 11, 1933 when the New York mafia's Lucky Luciano and his gang attempted to rip off the Times Square Bank.
The kids can help the cops chase down the bad guys as they climb through an off-Broadway theater passageway leading into the bank. There's dodging and weaving among the lasers as the chase goes through a maze of backstage corridors, props, trap doors and turns. With the clock ticking and suspense building, it's a real challenge to artfully navigate through a web of security beams inside the vault.
This is the one place in town that will bend your mind and get your heart racing.
