Thousands of people experienced the thrill of the giant Halloween Beach Maze over it’s two weekend run in Ocean City Maryland. This year the Maze was bigger and better than ever with surprises around every corner! Kids of all ages were able to experience a friendly scare as they meandered the sands of the giant beach maze. Wicked witches, pirates of the sand, scary scarecrows, ghouls in the graveyard, a giant spider web, zombies and more joined in the fun. Also while finding their way through the maze families could play the “eye spy” game to look for zombie gnomes. Prizes were awarded hourly thanks to gift cards from local restaurants. The maze this year featured a giant “OCMD” in the middle that people walked through.
