Just recently finished this working LEGO ball maze, also commonly known as a Labyrinth.  It features a removable ball storage container, travel lock and interchangeable mazes.

I built three mazes for it, including a space themed one and medieval themed one.

I also put together a video showing how it works.



And for those into CUUSOO, you can check out the project there.

Enjoy!

This is fantastic. I really like the mechanism you used, very clever. I feel like the space theme pales in comparison to the castle theme - it doesn't have any of the custom traps and tunnels that the castle theme has. The microscale castle designs are clever and would work great on their own, as well.

Thanks!  When I built the space one I was still mostly 'building a maze'.  When I got around to the medieval one I was definitely giving more focus to the theme.

Love it!! In my youth I used to build marble runs on a 48x48 baseplate, it was a lot of fun. I'd love to own this so definitely will support!

This is such a cool creation! I love the three separate mazes, though the medieval one has to be favorite!  :sweet:

Very cool! Pretty ingenious creation there. The ball storage and the holder that keep it still, brilliant! The interchangeability is great too. Supported! I'd totally buy this.

Passing the 2500 supporter mark on CUUSOO gave me a good excuse to build another themed maze for my Labyrinth project.  This one is called 'Legends of the Sea' and is set on the ocean floor, featuring a sunken ship, giant pearl, Kraken, thermal vents, ancient ruins, lost treasure and an anchor.  Unlike the other mazes, it doesn't have 'holes' for the ball to fall into, although it would be easy to add some to make it challenging. Had a lot of fun building this one!

I also hope you make it to 10,000 votes, as this is one set I would love to own.  The concept is unique, looks like it would be fun to play, it's modular in the sense that you can change the playing board, the presentation is perfect and it's not so big that it would be too expensive.  Well done and good luck.
