Good Adventure

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 went to the maze just this month and it was soooo much fun! the Kennedys do a good job of informing you what to do and you get a paper where you have to mark when you reach the stations, and what time you start. Very fun place, unfortunately if you want to go better go quickly, it will... More

Our group of 15 had a great time racing against the clock (and each other) to try and beat the time for getting all eight stamps on their card and through the exit. Our group was made up of 40 somethings down to 5 year olds. We split up into teams, and pretty much everyone was done in an hour.... More

We have done one other maze and love them. We spent just over an hour doing this and thought it was very difficult even though we had done one before. Great for when you traveling and want the kids to have a break, if you have the time.

Fort Custer Maze was one of the stops I chose for a long road trip. It was an excellent choice! The maze is very large and quite challenging. Weekly changes are made to keep it fresh for repeat visitors and discourage cheating. The maze has a number of very well-laid traps that will find you circling. I do suggest a... More

My company held a competition through the maze with several teams - so much fun! I've brought my kids and their friends here as well and always have a ton of fun figuring out the maze and they are very welcoming upon arrival.

This is such a fun place to spend an hour or two with groups. The store where you sign up is worth the trip alone -- lots of cool stuff. The maze is actually kind of challenging and takes a while to do -- we did it as scout troops and it's great for that. The owners are the coolest... More

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!

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!
