This article is a stub. You can help the Zelda Dungeon Wiki by expanding it.
This article is about the region in Phantom Hourglass. For the large zone home to the Maze Island Palace in The Adventure of Link, see Maze Island (The Adventure of Link).

In Phantom Hourglass, the Maze Island is a minigame island. It is not marked on the Sea Chart until Link comes close enough to see it, and then docks there. It is located in the North-Eastern quadrant, above the mountain ring that surrounds the Cobble Kingdom island, Isle of Ruins There are three levels, the rewards being a Wisdom Gem, Treasure Chart and Heart Container respectively. To play, Link has to run around the maze that covers the whole island, hitting all the Gossip Stones, under a time limit; There are 4, 8 and 14 Stones for each level respectively. There is also a loose Wisdom Gem in a chest that can be collected during any of the stages, by bombing a wall. Text guide here.

    Normal Map for Maze Island

    Reward: Treasure Map

    • Obstacle A: Start the maze by heading straight up north. At the first blue dot, use the bow and arrow to hit the eye switch above to create a bridge.
    • Statue #1: Cross the bridge and run to the top left corner of the map. Smack the 1st statue that is waiting for.
    • Statue #2: Run back south across the bridge once again, but this time head down through the right passage. Follow the winding path and hit the 2nd statue at the end of it.
    • Statue #3: Run across the bridge and climb the steps to the higher platform. Jump across to small gaps on the right and continue running right. There is another statue in a small enclosed area. Jump down and smack the 3rd statue.
    • Obstacle B: Climb the steps on the right and head down. There is a crystal switch on this higher platform. Swing at it and it will lower the spikes that are on the lower ground to the right.
    • Obstacle C: Jump off the ledge on the right. There is a small pond of water just above you. Pull out your boomerang and trace a path to a crystal switch that is on the other side of the water. This will lower the spikes that are just to the right of the switch.
    • Statue #4: Now head down and cross the lowered spikes. Run to the right and you’ll get to the 4th of the statues. You can place a bomb just next to the statue and then smack it with your sword. It will hurt Link but it will blow up a shortcut just below.
    • Obstacle D: Head up and climb up the second set of steps that you see on the right. Use the bow to shoot an arrow at the eye switch across the gap. It will lower the spikes that are on the lower platform just nearby and create an unnecessary bridge to the left.
    • Statue #5: Run down the steps and cross the lowered spikes to find the 5th of the statues.
    • Statue #6: Run up and take the first left. Follow the windy path and you will come to the 6th statue.
    • Statue #7: Just head straight down from here and cross the spikes that we lowered earlier. Smack the 7th statue.
    • Statue #8: Now run up on the left side. Wrap around the platform with the treasure chests and head right. Take the short path up north and then you will have two options of going north. Run to the second one on the left and follow it to the 8th and final statue.
    • Follow the long path on the left and at the fork in the road, head left. Follow the path, head down slightly and then continue traveling west until you reach a wall. Run down and then climb the steps to get to the higher platform. Jump across the gap to the right and then keep running right to find another gap. Jump across it the gap, run up before time expires, and claim your Treasure Map.
