Modular Maze System: The Free Maze

What makes the Free Maze unique is that each part is reconfigurable, allowing you to transition seamlessly between DIY modular maze configurations and giving you the ultimate flexibility.

  • Design your modular maze to your specifications.
  • Easily reconfigure mazes for a variety of different tasks. Examples include the t-maze, w-maze, plus maze, radial arm maze, and figure 8 maze.
  • Build mazes of increased complexity by simply adding more corridors.
