The tag attraction=maze is used for a labyrinth or maze: an area filled with footways that are separated by walls, hedges, corn plants, or other barriers. People walk through them for fun, trying to find the exit. A maze may have branches and dead ends. Some mazes also contain bridges, others feature fountains or obstacles. Mazes can typically be found in parks or theme parks.

How to map

If you have mapped the area of the maze, add this tag to the area. Otherwise, add a node to the center of the maze, and add this tag to the node.

Additional details

It is possible to trace and map the footways using aerial imagery. If you do this, don't tag the individual footways as attraction=maze, just make them ordinary footways.

You can even map the walls with barrier=hedge, barrier=wall or something similar.

You can tag the maze entrance node as barrier=entrance. If there is a turnstile, use barrier=turnstile instead. The exit can be tagged as entrance or turnstile as well. Note that some mazes have no definition of which opening is the entrance and which one is the exit.

Some mazes require payment of an admission fee, see fee=*
