Creepy Carnies Inc. came to town with a bad reputation and a series of pending lawsuits for everything from safety violations to health violations. But a couple of years ago a young child died in their maze of horrors. Creepy Carnies Inc. claimed that the firm named, "Ratt Entertainment and Amusements" was a separate contractor who owned the maze and that the parents of the deceased little girl should be suing them and not Creep Carnies Inc. Since the time of the girl's death Ratt Entertainment and Amusements had been shut down. Nobody knew who owned it and every possible lead met a dead end, so the parents and lawyer of the dead girl thought it would be best if they sued someone, so they went after Creep Carnies Inc.
The case had been wrangling in court for years so eventually the family gave up. No justice was served. It should also be noted that the police investigation was inconclusive because the girl had died in the the maze but the police did not know the reason why. She was found dead. Her heart had stopped and the police had ruled out foul play. So they couldn't lay any charges against anyone. The girl had simply gotten lost in the maze and died.
Then five years later Ratt Entertainment and Amusements reemerged under a new name called "Ratt Poison Shows." They returned with one of their legendary mazes that dwarfed anything they previously had. Once again Creepy Carnies Inc. contracted them out which infuriated the dead child's family. They went back to the lawyer but he said it would be futile because the girl died from natural causes and not because of the maze.
When the maze opened people flocked to it with up to a three hour wait to get inside. Children had to be accompanied by an adult to be admitted. The maze was rumored to be almost impossible to get out of with parents and children spending hours inside before yelling the code words, "Let me out." At this point a side door would open and someone would escort you out. People were baffled with the maze.
Nearly six weeks went by and nobody had found their way out of the maze. So Ratt Poison Shows offered a 100,000 dollar prize to the first person to find their way out. People came in droves but still nobody could find their way out. Several people died in the maze but that didn't stop people from coming. In fact it did the opposite and people came determined to defeat it.
The prize money was then upped to a million and that's when people started to come from all over the world. Some would stay in the maze for days, bringing food and a sleeping bag determined to find a way out. Websites popped up with people pooling their knowledge on how to get out. But it was hard to pool knowledge because no cameras or phones were allowed inside. The prize money then went to a billion and people began to quit their jobs and devote themselves full time to the maze.
From a remote location in an underground sewer the rats squeaked with laughter as they watched the humans on hundreds of television screens through cameras in the maze. One rat said, "These humans are funny what they will do for money. But none of them have conceived of the thought that there is no way out of the maze."
