from maize mazes in North America
to labyrinths in Egypt all mazes are for fun ,legend , and tradition people
all around the world have fun getting mixed up and confused some are easy some are obvious some are mind twisting
the labyrinths are underground and some Egyptians believed that the minotaur once lived inside the labyrinth feeding on anyone who reaches the middle or anyone who is
trapped in the labyrinths but the minotaur got defeated by a prepared man who killed the man-eating minotaur
