Ben suggested a maze that would change configuration mid way through the fair so the trampled grass would not give away the path in 2015.

    • Hi Bethany,

      It takes the better part of a day to set the maze up, but only about 30 min to take it down. Walking through it takes about 10 min, depending on a person’s height, age, and perseverance, also what time of day it is, the grass on the proper path gets trampled, so later maze walkers have it easier, like someone working in a book with partly erased pencil marks.

      I’ll point out your comment to Dan, he’s the maze man.


      • I find kids take about 10 minutes to walk through this. However, lots of kids keep coming back, to have a walk through with their parents, or to have a race with their friends!

I'd love to know what you think!
