Frequently Asked Questions
Should I bring my own flashlight on flashlight nights?
Yes, please bring your own flashlight since we don't provide them. Sometimes we have glow sticks available for purchase.
Do I need to make a reservation if I'm bringing a group?
No reservation is necessary on days we're already open. It is possible to make a reservation for days we're not normally open. Please see our event page for more information.
What ages will find the maze challenging?
The maze is fun and often surprisingly difficult for all ages. Sometimes children find their way faster than adults!
How tall is the maze?
The maze is 3 to 4 bales tall (4-6 ft) and designed to challenge people of all ages. The varying height contributes to the confusion.
How long does it take to get through and how long should we expect to be on site?
Average times range from 20-40 minutes to go through the maze. Most people spend 1 to 1-1/2 hours on site enjoying the beautiful mountain view from the farm, going through the maze, and participating in other activities. This year, we have several new challenges so you may want to plan for a longer stay.
Is it safe? What is the plan in case of fire?
Yes, it is safe! We have an emergency water pumping unit (new 2012), fire extinguishers, and tractors on site. Our staff is trained in their use and in evacuation procedures.
Straw bales do not burn quickly! We had the unique opportunity to watch a fire burn a portion of the maze in 2011 on a day we were closed. We studied the fire propogation rate and know that we would have had plenty of time for everyone to get out safely - had there been anyone there. The slow burning bales do generate a huge amount of smoke! Please call Dale if you have any further concerns about this topic.
Don't forget your camera!
