Artist Gijs Van Vaerenbergh has created this inception-inspired giant maze that has been built by structural engineering Bollinger+Grohmann and executed by Meuwes laswerken.

This giant maze is built in the open space of an old Winterslag mining location in Genk, Belgium. This maze titled Labyrinth is a life-size adventure that creates complete inception with the use of mirrors incorporated into the steel walls. The giant structure is created using over one mile of steel. The sixteen-foot tall walls tower over those who attempt to master the maze. Incorporated into the walls are circular windows that can also be used as shortcuts.

The maze can toured and explored from the ground, but guests can also view the maze from atop the two platforms that are built on the mine shafts at either end of the Labyrinth.
