This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   When they got out of the Maze and pushed the code, they encountered a greasy slide in which they slid on because there wasn't much of any other choices. When they got out of the Maze, they just walked into a dull gray hallway.
   There were 20 Gladers survivors. It looked less.
   The woman who works for WICKED appeared face to face with the Gladers. And she didn't explain further about the Flare or anything going on in the world. (The explanation about the Flare was mentioned in the second book) Lastly, she has been shot by one of the rescuers. The woman who works for WCKD talked to the Gladers on a video and she explained everything about the Flare and the outrageous heat spreading across the world. Lastly, she shot herself.
   The way to leave/escape is over a cliff jumping thru a magical in-air "hole", that had been discovered earlier by throwing rocks off the cliff and seeing them vanish in that spot. The way to leave/escape is thru a tunnel that has four "doors" that open up when a gadget (that had been retrieved from a dead Griever), gets close to it, and they run thru while open.
   The maze and glade is a huge square made of nine littler squares with the center being the Glade. Like on a phone calling screen, 1 thru 9, and the Glade is number 5. You get out of the Glade thru 2, 4, 6, and 8, and while in those sections you can then get into 1, 3, 7, and 9. The maze is a giant circle, with the square Glade in the center. No separated maze sections that you have to figure out how to get from one to the other (though there are some numbers mentioned that don't really mean much).
