Question ID: 594618
I'm interested in finding out if there are any attractions, whether it
be in an amusement park, tourist area or stand alone business that are
similar to this basic idea:

The attraction consists of a series of rooms or chambers where
people have to figure out a clue, solve a puzzle or break a code in
order to "complete" the room and move onto the next one.  Basically a
real life version of Myst/Raven-style video games or perhaps something
based on Indiana Jones (or similar movies) themed puzzles.  It might
be something similar to a Ripley's Believe or Not or a Guinness Book of
World Records type of business (in size and clientele, not theme
of course).  

That's a rough description, but I think you get the general idea of what I'm
looking for.  I'll provide an additional tip for great answers of
course!

Thanks in advance for the help and feel free to ask for as much
clarification is needed.

I rather doubt there is such an attraction for the practical reason
that the operator wants maximum customer traffic, and this kind of
attraction would fill up with people standing around and puzzling,
besides the fact that many would follow the crowd, and within a short
time the "answers" would become known.
Disney doesn't mind people standing around waiting in line  - they
paid at the gate -  pay-to-enter operators want the people to be in
and out within a couple of minutes.
But I may be all wrong, I have been before.
Good luck, Myoarin

I may have to eat my words.
The most entertainng maze that I have seen was one with clear glass
and mirrors over head-high as dividers, all set at 60, 120 ...
angles, which could be re-arranged.  A delight not just for those in
it but also for those who could watch them: bumping into the glass, or
peering at themselves in surprise.

Hmm?  So I don't have to eat my words?  There was a comment here that
mentioned something similar to what Ryanfields was asking about.

I had previously posted this comment, but it was removed because I
ended with the URL of the product in question. Google said it appeared
promotional. I am not affiliated with the company I was talking about,
so I will repost without the URL. The product in question is called
Magiquest, and you can easily find the URL with a search.

-----

My parents are in the amusement industry and recently came home from
the IAAPA convention talking about this new concept that was the same
basic idea. It seemed to be targeted to younger kids.

Essentially there is a series of rooms or stations and each kid
receives a "magic wand," which contains a computer chip. As they
progress through the maze, the story evolves based upon what you have
done previously.

I hope this helps,
