Maize Quest tarted in 1997 by Hugh McPherson who reconstructed the traditional corn field maze into something much more extraordinary. Each year, the corn field is designed to portray a different theme, some past ones including Escape from Egypt, Space Exploration, China: The Forbidden City, and Island Adventure. This year’s theme is The Adventures of Robin Hood! Can you make it out of the maze in one piece before the Sheriff of Nottingham finds you?
While it first began as one maze, the Maize Quest Fun Park now holds over 20 attractions! Take your chances in the Bamboo Forest, relax on a hay ride, or even go geo-caching. Or, should you dare, plan your visit during one of their Flashlight Nights and brave the maze in the dark! Have little ones? Visit one of their many smaller mazes, take a trip down the Maze Mountain Tube Ride, or even search for treasure in Miner Max’s Gemstone Mining! Also, parents will be happy to know that the park is open in the winter for their children to play and explore in the Winter Fun Barn and Play House.
Admission: Adult – $9.75, Children (12 and under) $7.75 Last tickets sold one hour before closing. Winter Play Days are free for adults, $7.50 for children (2-8 yrs).
