The attraction is clearly not designed for adults, and I would strongly advise against bringing anyone over the age of 12 to this place.

The location itself, an old warehouse, seemed promising at first, but the overall execution left much to be desired. The maze was constructed using flimsy plastic dividers, which immediately gave off a cheap and tacky vibe. The lack of effort put into the design and construction was quite evident, making it hard to immerse oneself in the experience.

What struck us even more was the unclean and unsanitary environment. The entire place had a grimy feel, which made the visit uncomfortable from the start. It's disappointing when an attraction fails to meet even the basic standards of cleanliness and maintenance.

As for the entertainment value, it fell short on that front as well. The lack of engaging puzzles, challenging obstacles, or creative elements left us underwhelmed. It felt like a missed opportunity to create an exciting and enjoyable maze experience.

Hello, thank you for taking the time to share your experience. It's true that the labyrinth is located in Hangar 16, which is a historic and heritage building and therefore quite old. However, on the question of cleanliness, you should know that there is a team dedicated to cleaning. The place shouldn't be dirty, and if it was during your visit, it's not a normal situation. We apologize for any inconvenience. As for the adventure, there aren't any puzzles, since we're not an escape game. But there is one: how to find the four longshoremen treasures and get out of the labyrinth! Were you able to reach the disco zone, the circus and the forest of trees, among others? We're really sorry you didn't enjoy the activity.

My son and his friends were enjoying themselves until they got kicked out for running. Apparently they were warned twice but the excitement must have got to them. The owner was courteous and gave me a 50% refund. I wouldn’t recommend this activity for children who enjoy running. Maybe I’ll send them on roller skates next time!

Hello, that's right, we had to take your child and his friends out. Before the activity, there is a 5-minute presentation explaining the game and the safety rules. Not running is one of the first. It's a huge labyrinth, and the corridors are often crowded. The risk in running is that you'll fall and hurt yourself, or run into another visitor, which isn't much fun. You've clearly explained the situation, and the group have been warned several times, but unfortunately we can't accept dangerous behavior.

Be prepared to walk, a lot. There were no clues or riddles to solve, just a lot of walking. The treasures are not that exciting and after a while it gets boring to keep walking in circles. There are a few cool photo opportunities inside though. when you are done with the maze, there's no prize, etc. This place could have been much better with a few improvements.

Don’t let the outside demeanour of the building fool you. This place is awesome. The kids (and parents) enjoyed every minute.

We have been struggling to find things to do in Montréal with our 12 and 14 year old children, so we decided to try this labyrinth thing. With taxes, we paid around $75 and they told us it should take us around 45 minutes to complete.

They explained that the point of it is to hunt for some kind of “treasure” and obtain 4 stamps from each of the four color areas within the labyrinth. We decided to pair up in 3 groups (kids vs parents). Not sure what the “treasure” thing was all about, as it basically became a race through the labyrinth to get the 4 stamps. The only signs we saw were at each of the places where you stamp your cards. There was no air conditioning, so luckily it was a nice (cooler) summer day, but it has to be brutal in there on a hot day.

The kids completed it in about 20 minutes with us parents complete long it a few minutes later.

Overall, while it did finally give us something to do, it didn’t feel worth spending $75 on.

We are sorry that you did not fully enjoy the activity. The 4 stamps zones correspond in fact to the 4 treasures. The objective is to pass through the different obstacles to discover the 4 historical treasures. The stamps are used to prove that you have found and learn about the famous treasures. Congratulations, 20 min is very fast!

We bought a multi-attraction pass which included SOS Labyrinthe. Regular price is very expensive for this attraction but we were a group of 6 and with our pass paid about $4 each. For this price, it was a half-hour of fun, but it isn't worth much more than that. We were two parents with sons ages 11-15.

Waste of time, overpriced. It took us 25 minutes to complete the maze and find the treasures. My kids are 10 and 7 and they were not impressed. Definitely not like it used to be.

I would give 0 stars if possible.
We were told to wait behind others so someone could explain rules to us in English - only to be pulled in 15 minutes after others were allowed ahead of us and and only have the maze explained in French - thankfully myself and my husband are bilingual and could explain to our kids, but why did 4 other families get to skip the line ahead of us then?!
The maze was boring and my kids lost interest to the point of aimless wandering. There were no puzzles or anything - literally just wandering around a musty warehouse.
Our family wound up arguing while trying to get out which was an awful feeling on its own. When we asked for help the worker made us dance for advice…. I mean, I know it is your job to be cute but HOW ABOUT READING THE FREAKING ROOM?! We were exhausted and angry, and you want us to dance?!
And to add insult to injury we overheard some employees making fun of us on the way out. AWFUL, terrible experience. Do NOT recommend this overpriced maze to anyone, but especially not to anglophone customers!

The girls saw this in the tourist information and really wanted to go. It was a 5min wait and straight in. It is a maze and very confusing, more luck to find all the treasures. They enjoyed themselves, though I was a little dizzy. It could be frustrating. Took us about 50mins.

We went here on a rainy day and it was a great activity for my kids, aged 5 and 6, and a good way to get some steps in! The treasures were appropriately hard to find. Most importantly, the kids had a great time.
