Monster Maze is an Arcade minigame on Mineplex that was released on October 15th, 2015. In Monster Maze, players must navigate through a maze filled with enemies to reach the beacon safe zones.

The minigame, a popular community idea created by players Wurp and Rythen, was originally known as Snow Sprint and was based off of the Snowman maze in the 2014 Christmas Chaos minigame. When their idea was accepted, the name was changed to Monster Maze in order to allow a greater variety of enemies beyond snow- and Christmas-themed mobs.


Players spawn on a platform in the centre of the map, designated by green clay. When Monster Maze begins, players are given a total of ten seconds to orient themselves to the map. After, the walls around the players fall and the players all try to reach the first safe zone. In each round, a safe zone will randomly appear on the map, marked by a 3x3 square of green clay and a beacon. After a round is over, when the new safe zone spawns, the beacon from the previous safe zone will disappear, and the safe zone will begin to disintegrate.

Different mobs (varies each map) wander randomly around the map and travel at slow speed. Upon contact with a mob the player will take a great deal of knockback, and 2 damage points (1 heart) which they cannot regenerate from, except for players using the Body Builder kit.

There is a known "exploit" during normal gameplay involving spamming jump while running to go faster. This glitch is not punishable, as it is regular behaviour in Minecraft.

Snow Sprint logo

Logo before the game was renamed to Monster Maze.

Snow Sprint was the initial idea which resulted in the creation of Monster Maze. It was suggested by forum users Wurp and Rythen, and is one of only few Mineplex games that were implemented based on a community suggestion.

While Snow Sprint was never implemented as envisioned by the creators, the following shows the features, kits, maps and achievements originally proposed.

Differences between Snow Sprint and Monster Maze[]
