I'm trying to remember the name of a series that was probably from the 70's or 80's that involved a small group (made up of children?) who were travelling through a maze or network of tunnels with the help of a computerized map (which sort of reminded me of the Hitchhiker's Guide in a way).

  • I think they were travelling in something like a mine cart or amusement part ride.
  • I also recall there being someone — a young man — who was somehow advising them from afar
    • but he was trapped under a waterfall and was covered in green clumps of something from the falls.
    • He was eventually freed.
  • And there was an enemy they were trying to outwit.

Do you remember if it was a live-action kid's educational show?

It's a bit of a reach, but it makes me think of 'Read All About It', which was an educational show (out of Canada) from 1979 to 1983. There were three children who were usually the protagonists, and the description for chapter 18 is:

Chapter 18: THE PLANET OF MAZE - Lynne and Sam help Chris and his uncle escape from the Planet of Maze by answering riddling questions.

They are riding around in what looks like an amusement cart ride.

It's VERY low resolution, but the episode in question can currently be seen here.

  • Wow. I've had this same question in my head for ages, but I could never quite figure out how to phrase it.
