The Maze Park offers many great adventures for families to embark on. The Finger Foods Game is an interactive maze game where families try to find five different educational food group stations, coloring a finger with chalk at each station. At the end, you’ll match the pattern of colors on your finger to the food chart to learn what healthy food you should try this week for a surge of good luck. The Spooky Pumpkin Maze offers 13 illustrated storyboards that tell the story of Spookley the Square Pumpkin. The Farm Scene Investigation Corn Maze is much longer than the other two, taking about an hour to complete. Set up like a classic “whodunnit,” families search for clue stations to eliminate potential suspects, weapons and locations to figure out what happened to Farmer Joe. Admission to the Maze Park is $15 and includes unlimited wagon rides, tractor rides
