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

Took five grandkids to the Fort Custer Maze. 'Boys' vs 'Girls'. It was a more challenging maze then I was expecting! But it was fun and everyone had a good time.

This maze ISN'T a corn or hedge maze but instead is made of tall fences in a square like a fort--hence the name. There are four corner towers, one center tower, and three bridges, and at all of them there is a stamp pad with a letter, pair of letters or word that you stamp on a postcard that you... More

My 8,6, 4 year old all enjoyed this puzzle. It took us about an hour and half to find our way back out. It did get a little warm as we got there about 11. Bring water if you go mid day in the summer.
