Braille Maze (also known as Fiji Braille Maze, Blind Maze, and Going Blind) is a recurring individual Immunity Challenge that debuted in Survivor: The Amazon, and has since reappeared in Fiji, Heroes vs. Villains, and Worlds Apart.


Each contestant is blindfolded, and must make their way through a maze whilst accomplishing given tasks (typically collecting medallions). Throughout the maze, raised signposts with Braille insignias help to point the castaways in the direction of items or the end of the maze. The first contestant to accomplish all the required tasks and reach the end of the maze wins the challenge.


The challenge debuted in Survivor: The Amazon as the final four Immunity Challenge. The contestants were required to locate four medallions representing the four elements (water, earth, fire, and air) and return them to the center of the maze. Jenna won the challenge, winning her third individual immunity.

In Survivor: Fiji the challenge was extended and modified. Each contestant had a uniquely shaped key that fit into a unique gate. The key unlocked the gate and dropped a drawbridge to permit access to the next stage of the maze (which grew larger and more complex over the five maze stages). Yau-Man won the challenge and his second individual immunity.

The challenge next appeared as the Final Immunity Challenge in Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains. The contestants had to collect four necklaces (again representing the four elements) scattered throughout the maze, then make their way to the Immunity Necklace located at the maze exit. The challenge reached a nail-biting finish, as Russell edged out Parvati and Jerri by mere inches to claim immunity. It was Russell's second individual immunity of the season.

The Heroes vs. Villains format reappeared in Survivor: Worlds Apart. The final five competed in it on Day 37. The challenge was won by Mike, who had previously received an advantage of practicing the maze earlier with the aide of his mother after winning the Loved Ones Challenge on Day 36.
