This Psychedelic Mirror Maze Is The Trippiest (Legal) Experience In SF

A kaleidoscopic labyrinth with 77 mirrors, dozens of color-changing lights, and intense ’80s music? Yep, this is basically an acid trip.

Pier 39 is an essential spot for fun attractions and experiences in SF, such as escape rooms and a virtual roller coaster. But this colorful, psychedelic mirror maze is a wild Pier 39 experience that has yet to be topped!

Magowan’s Infinite Mirror Maze is the ultimate fun house, outfitted with 77 mirrors and dozens of black lights so as to really step up the difficulty of escaping the labyrinth. Not only do the lights flash through different neon colors, but the whole experience is accompanied by blasting ’80s music!

By the time you make it out of the 2,000-square-foot labyrinth (complete with dead ends among the twists and turns), it’ll feel like you just emerged from another dimension. It comes as no surprise that the maze’s creator, Charles Magowan, studied psychology at Yale.

The maze is open from 11am-9pm daily at the top of Pier 39’s piano staircase. Tickets cost $10, and are valid at any day and time if you buy online. Kids 5 and under get in free.


While you’re on that end of town, be sure to check out Umbrella Alley for some beautiful interactive mural art, or The Flyer, an immersive flight experience that feels like you’re soaring over San Francisco.
