30KS0405009e013 - Oakley Oakley's Corn Maze - The Oakley corn maze at the Buffalo Bill Cultural Center, cut by Oakley's American Implement's Jason Pfeifer and Bert Maxfield, features twists and turns and even a few dead ends.

The Corn Maze is open to the public daily from dawn until dusk until the end of October. For your safety, wear shoes and socks, stay on the cleared paths and watch your step. Enter the maze under the golden entrance archway created by Oakley's, Rod Bates.

There are eight numbered Corn Fun Fact panels to help you find your way. If you find all the fun facts in order, you will have successfully completed the nearly half mile maze and exit after #8 on the path to the left of the entrance. Need a shorter route for the little ones? You can cut across at fun fact #2, #3 or #4 and pick up #7 and exit after #8.

Funded by a grant received from the Midwest Energy Community Fund, the Fun Facts make our maze both fun and educational. After you tour the maze, come on in to the center and take the The Corn Maze Quiz.
