The Amazing Maize Maze(R).

A great, off site camp trip, the official maze of The Old Farmer's Almanac will get hundreds of thousands of people lost this summer.

Eight giant cornfield mazes will spring to life this summer in seven states across America, overtaking cornfields in Rochester and Rockland counties, New York; Carmarillo, California; Paradise, Pennsylvania; Clemmons, North Carolina; Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; Princeton, Iowa; and Titusville, New Jersey.

"The American Maze Company is comprised of an extraordinary collection of theatre artists and craftsmen who love a great game," said Don Frantz, creator and founder of the American Maze Company. "We've spent the past six years developing our show throughout the United States"

Often challenging, bewildering, and ultimately enlightening, the journey through these giant cornfield labyrinths promises to be a breathtaking experience. Set within beautiful four- and five-acre cornfields, wanderers are invited to journey through two miles of an elaborately designed and thoroughly challenging "living" puzzle. Each maze is individually themed and depicts a grand image from an aerial viewpoint.

Hurry through or take your time. Enjoy the atmosphere, musical score, and interactive activities. Master the maze on your own terms while relating to nature. Whether strolling through the cornfield, solving the challenging 3D interactive puzzle, or developing camp staff's leadership, team building, and problem solving skills, it's all there for you! The ultimate challenge and reward are to successfully navigate through the maze . . . and then enjoy fresh baked goods and entertainment provided by local farmers.

Since the company's inception in 1993, over 350,000 people have been lost in Amazing Maize Mazes located in the U.S. The company's first three cornfield mazes made it into the Guinness Book of World Records, and the concept has been widely imitated throughout the U.S. and Europe.

Don Frantz conceived the idea of cutting mazes into cornfields in 1991. Growing stronger than ever, the Amazing Maize Maze has given a new twist to family entertainment while providing unique educational opportunities for all ages, and economic aid to preserving American farm families and nonprofit agricultural backgrounds.
