This way to walk a labyrinth is known as the Appleton for the Classical labyrinth (read more in Further Links at the bottom of this post). Thereby one can go in pairs in the same direction on lanes next to each other. However, one person goes into the labyrinth and the other outwards. This also functions in groups. However, this is only possible on certain lanes, not on all.
In the Baltic wheel this is quite different. There it is possible on all lanes from the beginning to the end. For there are two ways: One long way to walk in or out, a second short way to do the same.
The blue ball wants to get into the center of the labyrinth and takes the long way in. The yellow ball takes the short way directly into the center, from where it wants to take the long way out.
They stand side by side and walk off together in the same direction. It is also possible that others join them and form a long queue, since there is enough place.
Arriving at the second turning point there is a special moment: They meet each other and their lanes cross.
But they don’t change direction. They continue their way.
They have both nearly achieved their aim: The blue ball has arrived at the center. The yellow ball approaches the end of its way.
The blue ball can take the short way out. The yellow ball has arrived the exit. Both have exchanged their places.
The end is the beginning and the beginning is the end.
