Located across from the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, this Ripley’s attraction is fantastic fun for the whole family, including little vacationers. For grownups and older kids, try the glasses to up the difficulty level. Don’t worry about getting lost — they send search parties every half hour!

Backstage Mirror Maze

Get lost in the fun at the Backstage Mirror Maze at Broadway at the Beach. This fully immersive attraction offers over 2,000 square feet of sound and lighting effects, infinite reflections, surprising corners, dead ends, and continuous circles that will challenge visitors of all ages.

In addition to the Mirror Maze and The Vault Lazer Maze, there are escape room challenges, where guests are “locked” in a room and tasked to find clues as a group. Solve a series of puzzles and escape before times runs out! The Haunting of Hyde House is spooky and perfect for Halloween, or go on an epic adventure in The Legend of Atlantis.

Visiting the Grand Strand for the Holiday Season? Try the new Dark Winter Nights escape room. This frightfully festive game features the dreaded Krampus and holiday-themed puzzles. Do you have what it takes to save Christmas?

Hannah’s Maze of Mirrors

This epic maze features a storybook theme and 288 potential turns among hundreds of mirrored walls and archways. Help free Princess Hannah and save the day, but watch out for the kaleidoscope chamber and spinning floor!

Break Out Myrtle Beach

Are you smart enough to escape in 60 minutes or less? Test your mind in one of four escape rooms at Break Out in North Myrtle Beach. It will take intense cooperation to find the clues and solve the puzzles, whether it’s battling zombies, outsmarting a serial killer, searching for Black Beard’s buried treasure, robbing a bank, solving a murder CSI-style, or escaping an active volcano on a deserted tropical island.

Riddles Escape Room in Myrtle Beach offers seven uniquely themed options for all ages and skill levels, including an underwater laboratory, space station, wagon trail, and steampunk mansion. In each live action adventure, groups search for clues and hidden objects, break secret codes, and work together to solve puzzles and earn bragging rights. But be warned… what you think you see isn’t what you see! Groups with younger players receive assistance. Adults are on their own!
