In this guide, we will show you ten of the best Minecraft parkour maps, and focus on their pros and cons in order to educate you in beating them.

Minecraft Parkour Maps FAQ

1. What Are Minecraft Parkour Maps?

Minecraft parkour maps require the player to jump and navigate a series of blocks and obstacles in order to make it to the end of the course. Not all of the blocks are stable or easy to navigate – some require different maneuvers in order to get by, and there will be obstacles along the way.

2. How Do Minecraft Parkour Maps Work?

Minecraft parkour maps require a series of different types of jumps, and the obstacles can include ice, lava, and slime to make it more difficult or impossible to complete the course. You also have to prepare yourself in order to calculate the appropriate distance you can cross in a jump.

3. Where Can You Buy Them?

You can find the maps for free on various websites, of which the most popular is Minecraft Maps.

4. Can I Make My Own Minecraft Parkour Map?

Yes, you can make your own Minecraft parkour map. You can even make money off the advertisements for the associated downloading website if your map is viewed and downloaded by enough people. This rewards the players who make the best designs.

The Verdict

If you wish to gain full familiarity with all the possible Minecraft parkour maps, you should definitely consider checking out all of these maps (or at least as many as your system will support, since these were designed for different versions). However, if you are a multiplayer type of user who wants to get the most out of a map, we definitely think the general public’s love for the Parkour Paradise 3 map is well earned.

The sheer variety and breadth of the levels on offer makes it the best bet for anyone who wishes to go from a beginner to an advanced Minecraft player over a long period of time. The best part of this enormous pack of levels is that by the time you have mastered enough of them, you will have enough experience under your belt to potentially make Minecraft maps of your own.

Playing so many levels in one go is the best way to learn what makes a great Minecraft map. Hopefully, you will be able to earn money from the advertisements and beat out all of the highest rated maps we have covered here. Best of luck in your journey through these maps, and potentially your own!
