Corn mazes can attract a wide audience, from the very young to the very mature, although children and young adults are the most common visitors. While some children may be accompanied by parents or adults, many want to go into corn mazes on their own.
Corn mazes can range in size from a few acres to tens of acres. Some mazes have very elaborate designs with many dead ends and require considerable time to navigate. Other mazes may be a simple winding path through the field. Regardless of how elaborate or simple the maze may be, the same basic safety recommendations apply.
The “walkthrough” that follows will encompass some general safety guidelines for corn mazes, and also provide links to useful resources.
Note: The increase in popularity of corn mazes has led to some local regulations being adopted in some areas. Check your local municipality for regulations regarding corn mazes in your area.
