Our twenty-plus acre corn maze is quite unique, different than we have done before. Our maze is not so hard to get through, it is hard to find the challenges, twenty-three this year. What is different is that it is two separate fields with only one crossing to get from one field to the other. The north field depicts a sun and clouds, the south field spells out Pumpkinville.
Our mazes have historically taken at least one hour, late in the season when the corn has dried down- to five hours, early in the season when the corn is green, lush and full. Never fear however, if you don't get it done with the first try, as long as you hang on to your ticket, you can come back and finish it any time.
People return year after year to our maze. It is great for all ages and types and sizes of groups. We are home to team building exercises, church groups, school groups, civic groups, scouts YMCA's and more.
For a special challenge to make the maze even tougher, just call for information.
We have a $1 mini maze that is designed for small children.
Insect repellent is advised this year
