While you’re here, you can take part in our many Attractions; ride on a horse drawn wagon, fire the mighty potato cannons, pick out your own Halloween pumpkin, and stay for lunch at the Corn Cafe, serving farm fresh food all day.

Young kids will delight in our larger-than-life playground featuring a giant double drain-tube slide, a jump pad, tractor tire jungle gym, and giant games! Older kids (and adults!) can enjoy a race around the track in our pedal carts at Dave’s Derby. And folks love to check out the view of the maze from the perspective of our giant walk-in camera obscura!

Visitors to Mike’s Maze will encounter activities, games, and amusements to entertain the entire family. Located on a working farm at the foot of Mount Sugarloaf, visitors enjoy gorgeous views of the New England foliage.

Every year we concoct a brand new maze, along with themed games that will challenge you to solve puzzles and problems, and lead you on your exploration through the corn! Be prepared to laugh and learn as you wander the 8-acre maze, encountering installations and trivia at every turn!

A Short History of How the Maze Came to Be

3

The idea for Mike’s Maze was born at a Christmas party almost twenty years ago when two friends, farmer Mike Wissemann (pictured here with his son, David) and artist Will Sillin, decided to combine talents and create corn art.

Will designed the inaugural maze and fashioned it using a rented ATV and a GPS. After the first year was a success, they decided to make each maze bigger and more detailed than the last.

Will developed a precise strategy to perfect his corn art by creating a grid system and removing individual stalks of corn for greater detail and precision.

After a decade and a half of making his world famous art in corn at Mike’s Maze, and designing creative games to pair with them, Will stepped down as our Resident Corn Artist after the 2014 season in order to spend more time exploring his other areas of artistic interest.

Mike’s son David Wissemann and his wife, Jess Marsh Wissemann took over as co-creative directors of the maze in 2015. Jess’ first design, “Alice in Sunderland” was a sensational success, and went viral overnight with over 3 million views! They have carried on the tradition of creating an immersive experience around quirky themes and mind-blowing designs.

Mikes maze is by far my favorite fall festival for little kids. The games and activities are awesome, the food is good, the bathrooms are clean, and you don’t have to pay for each individual activity. Kids can just roam from one to the next. And of course the maze itself is beautiful. My 2.5yr old said his favorite part was the corn forest. My 4yr olds favorite thing was the bouncey mat.

Had a lot of fun! It is not a huge place, and expectations should be realistic. But it's definitely worth a day trio down to spend a day!

Great family activities, fun for all ages. The corn maze (this year it’s more of a puzzle than a maze proper) had several different puzzles for different age/ability ranges. The playground area is great, some classics like swings but also a giant trampoline, giant slides, pedal car racetrack, “hamster wheel” pipes the kids can race, and a concession stand with food and donuts.

We really enjoyed this beautiful farm. So much for kids to do. Our 6 yr old son loved it. Not to big not to small, perfect size area for kids to run and play. Delicious food and treats. Very interesting Corn Maze about Artificial Intelligence and what makes us human.
