You can not only view mazes world wide via Google Earth but you can also try to find a maze of a world famous person like Oprah.
While looking at the sixteen strangest sights in Google Earth I saw a maze representing the face of Oprah. An Arizona farmer built this 10-acre homage to the talk show host (Google Earth coordinates 33.225488,-111.5955). Visitors can tell their friends, “I got lost inside Oprah’s head.”. Happy Puzzling!

Although this puzzle game is designed to test some 3D and therefor only has three levels it will keep you busy for a while. Object is to get the rolling block standing on the cell marked with a the with X. You control the rolling block with your cursor keys.

Another page I found about mazes is called MazePlay but this one is not updated yet for 2007 so you can only find aerial photos [Read More...]
