Do you have what it takes to survive? Take a step back into history to find out!

In 1607, settlers landed on the shores of America and called it home, creating the first permanent European settlement. Little did the colonists know that less than half of them would survive the year in this new wilderness.

Minotaur Mazes’ American Adventure takes visitors on an immersive, educational role-play adventure that asks people to conquer one great challenge: survive the year as one of the original colonists. 

Sound easy? Think again. Only 38 of the 104 colonists survived. But don’t worry – you’re not tied to their destiny. You can beat the odds and determine your fate – it all depends on the choices you make...and a bit of luck.

American Adventure you decide

Visitors choose a unique Life Chart based on one of the original Jamestown colonists. Each chart features an easy-to-use abacus with beads representing “life points.”

These beads track the results of the choices visitors make when encountering challenges. The goal of the exhibition is to maintain life points in all four categories to stay alive.

American Adventure Wheel of Misfortune

Can you survive?

Survival is based not only on visitor knowledge and ingenuity as they encounter challenges, but also on the endowments and priorities of their chosen character. 

The American Adventure experience quickly reveals how everyday decisions and interactions with the environment can be a matter of life and death.
