The maze has closed, the little cabin is there but surrounded by a corn field. It was a unique experience while it was there. Sadly you will have to find other things to do in Clear Lake.

It was very fun but they tore it down - and now it is a field of soybeans. So don't go because it is gone forever. The owner retired.

Maze was a lot of fun. Great challange, especially for those with no sense of direction. We completed it on a 88 degree day! Which made it even more of a challenge!

We were surprised how fun this was. Thought it was going to be so-so and ended up being the most fun of the weekend! Not as easy as you think so be prepared to really work at it!
