Gigantic Inflatable Structure is a Maze Filled with Color

Designed to immerse its visitors with light and color, Luminaria is a gigantic inflatable sculpture designed by Architects of Air. Since 1992, over two million visitors in 38 countries have experienced a luminarium, or what is described as a dazzling maze of winding paths and soaring domes. The domes can reach up to 30 feet high and are the focal points of the structure. The tunnels connect the domes and pods, which are alcoves where people can sit and gather.

Here's how visitors described their experience, “One of the most remarkable experiences of my life. I was blissfully a child,” “Somewhere between a womb and a cathedral,” and “Transformative. People seemed to be taken…brought back to a place of tranquility and joy.”

Sounds like a wonderful place to get lost.
