We had a lot of fun at the maze. Our toddler bounced in the bouncy house with one of us while the other did the maze. It is a lot harder than I thought it would be- but super fun! Like others say, it gets hot. They sell water and snacks there at a bit of a steep price, but... More

We had fun but once you are inside there is absolutely NO air movement whatsoever! The kids struggled, to my amusement, thinking they were on the right path only to have to go back and figure it out. If it's a warm day take water!

It was warm, and with all the walls, etc there was not much air movement. Fun to do, was much harder than anticipated.

We had a ton of fun doing this which surprised us! We were thinking it'd be easy but found out it took some doing to make it through. It was a great way to spend a couple hours and walk a few miles! WEAR walking shoes!! It's all pea gravel.

We went in thinking it would be a piece of cake to negotiate. Two hours later, we weren't as arrogant! We did find all 8 stations, but it wasn't easy. The route to the maze is well marked and easy to get to. It is $6 per adult to get in which is entirely suitable. Each member of the group... More

This place was fun! You get a card and have to find 8 checkpoints throughtout the maze. It takes most people 45 mins to get through it took myself, husband and 5 yr old 1 hr 30 min. The only thing that they might want to improve on is pulling unwanted weeds, staighten the pallets alittle so they don't look... More

My husband and I stopped here with the kids to break up the car ride (ages 9,7, and 4). They have bouncy houses that the kids played around in before starting the maze. This is a good maze, but it was really HOT, so would recommend taking a water bottle in with you. Also, the path is rocky, so sandals... More

It was something for the kids to do on a cold day in May. They weren't overjoyed to go (10 and 14), but they had an okay time running through the maze. It is reasonably priced, too, which made up for the lack of excitement!

Go into a maze of pallets at the Fort Custer Maze in Clear Lake. Bring a phone in case you get lost! We had such fun separating into "teams" and finding all the check in posts. Adults and kids love it. Teens can run independently while one would want to keep a close eye on their very young children. Fun... More
