Junior Weekend Stage 3: The Maze

Stage description

You have to navigate your way around an orienteering course in a maze, as quickly as possible.

Recommended device

Desktop computer or laptop.

Background info

For the Junior Weekend we’ve built our own version of Laby. Why? To make it a fairer competition and a bit easier to play!

The game Laby was created by Jarkko Ryyppö, who also created the original Routegadget. This game was originally created in the 1990s so it is a classic! It’s the closest you can get to orienteering on a computer without using Catching Features or Virtual-O.

Tips (important!)

We definitely recommend that you play some warm-up games before playing the actual stage.

  • The compass on the floor is always visible and points “north” (towards the top of the map).
  • Whatever you do, stay in contact with the map – it is very, very difficult to relocate!

Practice here.


There is a choice of two courses:

  • Large Maze – 40×40 grid
  • Medium Maze – 20×20 grid

You’ll be ranked by:

  1. firstly, which course you complete – everyone who completes Course A will be ranked above those who complete Course B
  2. then, the total time you take to complete the course


You can play some warm-up games before moving on to the real thing:

Ready to Play?

The Maze may take a second to load (especially with a slow internet connection) as it is building a full 3D model, please be patient – it should load. Once the maze appears (It has blue walls), everything should be loaded, and nothing else needs to download. Please remember to click the `Finish` button once you have completed the maze, to upload your time.

You can do both mazes below, the hardest one you complete will count 🙂

  1. Medium course
  2. Hard course

You MUST complete this stage by 19:30 BST on Saturday 18th July.

If you have any issues, please contact us.
