Floating Labyrinth - The ball appears to float through an intricately connected matrix. What appears to be open paths are mysteriously blocked in this 6x6x6 maze. The dimensions of this maze are 31mm by 31mm by 31mm and the ball is 8mm in diameter.
Ethereal Maze Puzzles are mazes that you solve by rolling a ball through an innovative new three dimensional lattice structure which forms the maze paths. The goal is to roll the ball through the Labyrinth Maze from the entrance to the exit. An additional challenge is to navigate the ball from the exit back to the entrance.
Start by pushing the ball into the spring loaded entrance ( it looks
like a backwards “J”). Tip the maze in different directions to roll the
ball along the paths through the maze. Don’t worry, if you make a wrong
turn, the ball will not fall out of the maze. If the ball runs into a
dead-end you can just roll the ball back the opposite way and try
another path, that’s all part of this fun brain game. When you reach the
exit there is a spring loaded button to press to release the ball from
the maze. The exit is in a corner of the 3D maze, where you will find a
bar with the little button sticking out from the side of the maze.
Each maze game come with the ball attached by a little chain link cage for shipping. This needs to be cut off and cut open with scissors and the ball will fall out. Note that each larger size maze comes with a larger ball. The balls can quickly and easily be colored with a highlighter or marker. Let the ball dry for a minute after applying then roll between clean white paper to remove excess color so it does not rub off on the maze. Paint for plastic models can also be used. The orange, green and black balls in the pictures were colored with highlighters or markers. Coloring the ball makes it easier to track in the Labyrinth maze.
