Frequently Asked Questions ( FAQ )
When does the maze open?
Refer to our Fritzler Corn Maze schedule for dates and times.
How big is the maze?
The Fritzler MAiZE covers over 15 acres of ground and contains over 2 miles of pathways guaranteed to get you and your family or friends lost.
How long does it take to go through the maze?
It all depends on how many wrong turns you take. The average person will finish the corn maze within one hour. Some people have taken a lot longer and a few a bit quicker. For those who are afraid about the time it will take to finish the maze, we do have Corn Cops in the maze that can help you find an exit.
Will I get Lost?
We hope so! It’s designed to be that way. While everyone does get lost to a different degree, we have designed the maze to be an interactive activity that makes a trip inside the maze more than just a walk through some corn. At the beginning of your visit you have the option of taking a “passport”. The ten questions on the passport will help you make your way through the maze.
What forms of payment do you accept?
The preferred method of payment at the maze is cash (US currency only, please), but we also accept Visa & Mastercard! Cash is the only method of payment for our concessions vendors.
What age is the Fritzler Maze most appropriate for?
One of the great things about Fritzler Farms is the fact that it offers something that everyone of all ages can enjoy. From babies all the way up to grandma and grandpa, our goal is to make sure everyone in your group leaves with memories to cherish.
When do you begin haunting?
Phase 2 of the maze, Scream Acres, the interactive ghost haunt, and Zombie Slayer Paintball are all haunted shortly after dark. We do not haunt on Sundays.
What age is appropriate for Scream Acres and other haunted activities?
Scream Acres is appropriate for older children and adults. Since each child is different, we leave it up to you, as the parent, to decide if your child would enjoy the haunted experience. While we try to avoid unnecessary gore, this is a dark cornfield and you will undoubtedly encounter some startling things lurking in the corn!
Children under 13 must be accompanied by an adult. Discretion is advised when purchasing haunted tickets – there will be NO REFUNDS on purchases.
Are you open during bad/inclement weather?
Unforeseen weather can force us to close at any time, an announcement regarding any weather closures will be recorded on the MAiZE hotline (970) 737-2129, Fritzler Maze on Facebook, or here on the website.
Are there refunds if guests leave due to weather?
No, but rainchecks will be issued allowing you to return on a future date.
How accessible is the maze?
Fritzler Maze is handicap accessible. The corn maze and courtyard itself however are on unpaved farm ground. Wheel chairs, strollers and wagons can be brought on premises and are able to complete the corn maze, but the ground (like any farm) can be bumpy or in some cases muddy in spots.
Are there restrooms on site?
There are porta potties on site at Fritzler Maze.
What should we wear?
Because we operate in September and October, we recommend being prepared for cool weather. We also recommend wearing closed-toe shoes or sneakers. Remember that you will be in a farm atmosphere and should dress appropriately for the best experience.
When is the best time to come to the maze?
Friday and Saturday nights after dark in October are our busiest times. You may want to plan your visit to Scream Acres for a Wednesday or Thursday evening if you are looking for a smaller crowd.
Can we bring our own food and picnic at the maze?
Absolutely! Though we sell lots of great food onsite, you are welcome to bring your own as well. We have a large grassy area and picnic tables that are available on a first-come-first-serve basis. Additionally, we have tent areas that can be reserved for groups or parties. We also take reservations for campfire sites for those wishing to bring hotdogs to roast over the fire.
Are we allowed to bring our dog with us to the maze?
Unfortunately, we no longer allow pets on the property, the exception is service animals.
What are the maze rules?
No running; no smoking; no alcohol; no throwing corn (kernels, ears, or stalks); stay on the designated pathways; no hitting/touching actors or special effects in haunted areas/attractions; please refrain from using obscene/derogatory comments, gestures, etc. while at the maze.
How do you make the maze?
Its taken lots of practice. Our particular process of making the maze is a trade secret, but we can tell you that we plant the whole field in the spring and then cut out the design when the corn plants are still fairly short. The design is created on a computer and then transferred into the corn field.
Can I eat the corn?
You could, but it wouldn’t taste very good. The variety of corn that we grow for the maze is field corn for cattle.
