The Heroic Maze is designed to be challenging but still allows visitors to exit quickly if needed. The maze is divided into two phases so you can customize your experience:
Kiddie Maze—A short maze specially designed for our youngest visitors is a fun introduction to corn mazes. This maze has twists and turns but no dead ends. Recommended for children up to age four with adult supervision.
“Captain A Ship” Maze Quest—Hidden in the maze are 8 stations each representing a component of an 18th-century fort. Players are given a Quest Card to collect a stamp from each station. It takes perseverance and skill to find all the objects. Great fun for all ages!
