2017 Dates and Times
SEPT. 30th – OCT 31ST Daily 10 AM – 6 PM
This Years Theme: Punkin Chunkin
Play 2 Maze Games: (at the same time)
Our 4-acre maze is a puzzle of trails in which you play 2 games simultaneously, one is Farm Scene Investigation and the other is a trivia game based on each year’s theme. Your task is to find all 6 stations to get the clues and questions without getting lost. Navigate correctly and you will find the lookout, the stations and ultimately find your way out. Trail Caution: We recommend wearing hiking boots or shoes with very good traction as our trails have uneven ground. We cover our trails with sawdust to minimize slippery trails. It’s Washington, so yup, there might be a little mud here and there. Not recommend for strollers, wheelchairs or crutches.
Game #1: Farm Scene Investigation (FSI)
Farmer Joe is missing! Navigate your way through our maze…Be a detective…Discover who dunit! Find the 6 stations with clues to figure out which of the 7 suspects is guilty. They’re your typical farmy bunch. Punch your card to keep track of the clues. Time is critical to save Farmer Joe.

How do we make the maze?
We get many questions and guesses as to how the maze design is done. We design our own mazes with a different design every year. We plant the maze 1st of July then cut it out late July. We use animal feed corn to get that notable 10′ height. The corn is planted in a grid. We superimpose our design onto the grid and then use “old school” method to cut out the design by counting rows, marking them and using a small tractor with a tiller. We then cover our trails with composted sawdust to minimize the mud.
Field Caution! The corn maze has uneven ground and can be muddy and slippery after rain storms (hey it’s a farm). We recommend boots and play clothes. Strollers, walkers and other wheeled items are not recommended for the trails. Not recommend for infants or toddlers barely walking as trail system is over 2 miles long.
Maze by Night (No-haunt Dark Maze corn maze)
Our day-time maze turns into a flash light maze on certain October Nights. No haunts here but plenty of chills wondering the spooky hallows of our corn field. And don’t forget a flashlight! See Frightmaze.com for dates, times and prices.
