Canada’s Horseshoe Resort Opens Giant Human Maze

September 1, 2011 No Comments

Horseshoe Resort, a ski area in Barrie, Ontario (north of Toronto), recently added a new feature to its summer Adventure Park – a 6,000-square-foot giant maze.
The Red Horse Maze was custom built to reflect the personality and uniqueness of Horseshoe Resort, with the Native American Legend of Red Horse inscribed on 16 of the outer panels, complete with drawings. The dark red panels complement the theme colors of the resort, with its signature brand Red Horse drawing at the check-in points and on the covered observation deck. The exterior of the maze is made from cedar logs to match historic fences in the area. The attraction took 10 days to construct.
“The resorts employees were very skilled and committed to a quick opening, and that made our work go very smoothly,” said Greg Gallavan, owner of Winter Park, Colo.-based Amaze’n Mazes. The Red Horse Maze was the 50th giant maze Gallavan has built so far, with dozens operating in the United States and others in the Caribbean and in Europe.
So far, the maze has been well received by guests of the resort. “We’ve had great feedback about the maze so far,” said Emma Hutchison, who sells passes at the resort for all of the attractions in the Adventure Park. “The mini-golf-and-maze combos are selling well.”
In addition to the mini-golf and maze, the park, which opened about a year ago, also features lift-serviced mountain biking, a zipline, a climbing wall, a skatepark, and Ogo (a downhill ride inside a giant ball), as well as an 18-hole golf course.
