About Our Mazes

This is the World’s Largest Corn Maze, but don’t let the size scare you. The maze is designed in sections of smaller mazes so you can do as much as you want and then get out easily. The smallest part has quiz questions to help guide you through and usually takes under half an hour to complete. The mazes are not one way in and one way out. The trails loop around and connect so it’s relatively easy to get out of even our most complex maze. Finding all the checkpoints is the real challenge!

Solving the maze is a wholesome, country adventure that you’re sure to enjoy. Every year we strive to improve and expand our entertainment offerings at our corn maze while still keeping that country feel. Our picnic area and free campfires continue to be hugely popular. The big top tent by the concession barn is a great place to eat, visit with friends and stay out of the elements. Some folks say the giant 50’ long slide is worth the price of admission alone and there are also free pedal carts and a free, huge, 50’ tall observation tower so you can see the aerial view of the corn maze and our entire farm. We are one of only a very few mazes in the country that is open late every night for a whole new twist on “corn mazing”. There’s nothing quite like finding your way through the mazes with flashlights or the light of the moon under the starry sky and after, cooking s’mores over a campfire.
