What is Firelight Labyrinth?

This year as part of Firelight Festival, Marvel Stadium welcomes Firelight Labyrinth. Moving through three distinct rooms, this labyrinth of light tells a modern version of the mythology of Theseus and the Minotaur.

What is the story of Theseus and the Minotaur?

Theseus, a hero of Athens, ventures to Crete to slay the Minotaur, a half-man, half-bull monster kept in the labyrinth. Guided by Ariadne, daughter of King Minos, he unravels the maze with a red thread and defeats the Minotaur.

Using cutting-edge technology, dynamic audio, and an astonishing array of over 144,000 lights, Firelight Labyrinth leads visitors on the journey with Theseus, following his descent into the labyrinth and his ensuing battle with the Minotaur!
