Owner description: Maize Quest Fun Park is the largest collection of people-sized mazes in the world. Different attractions open year round. Challenge mazes made of Bamboo, Rope, Fence, Stone, Tile, and Cornstalks. Zip down the 80-ft-long tube slide and zoom on the peddle karts. We're located in York County, PA in South Central Pennsylvania, just 3 miles from the Maryland/Pennsylvania border. Just minutes from Harford & Baltimore County, MD.

Although the corn mazes are not quite in season in mid-August, the pick-your-own sunflower patch is a great way to spend an hour or two in the summer. We pre-purchased our tickets online and received wrist-bands for the hayride to the field. Once in the field, you are given a pair of pruning shears and a paper listing the different varieties of sunflowers. There are at least 28 varieties available for cutting. I never realized there were so many different sunflowers.
One sunflower is included with your admission, but we also added a "+6" ticket and a "bucket +6" ticket. We came away with a total of 16 sunflowers for a family of four. After you pick the flowers, the friendly staff helps you place the stems in a plastic bag filled with water and zip-tied to keep most of the water inside. Carrying the large sunflowers was challenging, but the hayride back to the parking area makes the walking distance very short.
While we were in the field, we enjoyed the music from the live band playing classic rock songs from bands such as Lynyrd Skynyrd and The Eagles. There were a few food trucks available near the music tent as well.
All in all, the staff was friendly and helpful, the flowers were beautiful, and the hayride was fun. We will be back in the fall for the actual Maize Quest events.

It’s a great place for all ages honestly. The maze it the dark is awesome. You could exit in. An hour but there are so many puzzles to finish that you could spend more then 3 hours to accomplish it. There’s also smaller mazes and slides. Overall it was a great time with my friends and we are in our late twenties.

Friendly staff available to ask qustions and direct you inside. Watching the video before getting lost in the maze was helpful. My two teens enjoyed it but it definitely offers more activities to do for the younger children. Went on a Saturday morning before it got too crowded which was perfect.Really enjoyed the bamboo maze the best which offered shade from the hot sun. We all would have tried the pedal cars but most of them were broken and we would have waited a long time for people to finish. Only our youngest had the opprtunity to try it.There should be someone working there to remind riders one lap around to give others waiting in line a chance. We enjoyed the free apples, donuts, & ice cold refreshing apple cider on our way out which was wonderful! Overall, a nice fun family experence. Be prepared to do lots of walking and wear comfortable shoes.

Perfect for adults and children. So much to do and see, educational and fun. Loved it. My grandchildren ages 13, 9 & 8 had a fabulous time. Mazes abound. Well thought out and perfect for engaging kids of all ages. Loved the Genie theme, and video of what to do and the rules. Snack prices are family friendly, which is greatly appreciated. Off the beaten path, but so worth the extra miles. Hint: Look for coupons - don't pay full price!!

I took my son 9/17/17, on a Sunday and there were no lines at all. We used the voucher for his summer reading program for his ticket and I just paid for mine. We had a blast! There were so many activities to do. We really liked the bike course. They looked like go-carts but they were bicycles. There was a fun course that included going through a tunnel. There was a big slide and so many mazes to try. We LOVED the bamboo maze. When you found each clue, you put a smudge of color on a random finger. When you come out of the maze, you match your finger colors to a chart for a fortune. The bamboo maze was perfect for our short attention spans. It was cool inside without the direct sunlight and had a fun feel to it. Because we saved so much money on my son's ticket, I splurged for the gem mining experience. We bought the $8 bag which was filled with fun rocks and minerals. My 8 year old son had a lot of fun figuring out which each was using a guide card that was included. We never even went through the major maze attraction. We had so much fun running all around the rest and spent most of a fun Sunday there. After we finished, we stopped for our complimentary apple and some apple cider at the café. We bought some ice cream and honey as well. It was less than a 25 min ride to this place from Forest Hill. We will definitely do this again next year in September again when there are no lines.
