This maze was a bit smaller then others in the area, (We live in Holly Springs) but it was so much more fun. The maze took enough time to be challenging but not so long that if felt as if it would never end. There were huge plastic pipes for the kids to crawl in and roll down the hill. The girls rolled for a long, long time. You park and take a hay ride to the maze and barn. That was a blast too and even more fun riding it back in the dark to the parking lot. They can a barrel wagon, and could shoot corn into large barrels with the help of the employee. The girls loved that too. We got hotdogs and drinks and had cake and gifts under the roof of the nice open barn. It was an EXCELLENT place for a kids birthday!!!!"
