frequently asked questions

How big is the maze?  The hay and corn maze are linked together and cover more than 1 acre, providing more than 4500 feet (nearly a mile) of passageways.  (Yes, you will get lost.)

What should I wear?  Everything is outdoors, so be prepared for sun, rain or even snow in late October.  We also recommend sturdy shoes or boots (occasionally corn fields have mud) and don't forget a flashlight if you come at night!

How long does it take to get through?  It depends on how many wrong turns you make!  Every person will make it through in a different amount of time. We estimate the average time in the maze will be about 20 to 30 minutes. Most people spend at least an hour to enjoy all of our activities.

What if I can't find my way out?  Answering questions correctly from the clue sheets will help you navigate the maze.  But, if you're still baffled, we'll help you find your way. (If you are bringing kids, we suggest anyone under 12 enter the maze with an adult or older teen to ensure a fun experience.)

Is the maze just for kids?  No! If you think this is a kid maze, you haven’t tried MissoulaMaze! With almost a mile of passageways, we guarantee you’ll get lost. Still not convinced? Take the ultimate challenge: come after dark for the NIGHT MAZE. That’s when the maze goes ‘clueless’ - we remove all the markers and clues. How long will you be lost? There’s only one way to find out! (A flashlight might be helpful if you want to get out before morning.) 

Is the maze haunted?  Being lost in the maze after dark is scary enough!

Can I take a stroller through the maze?  Yes, but please note passageways are 30 inches wide (plus or minus 2 inches).  Most jogging strollers or double strollers will not fit - especially around corners.

What about wheel chairs?  Most wheel chairs will not fit.  If too big they will get stuck and you will have to back out. 

Do you have school rates?  Yes, we offer school rates.  For more information please call 544-8657 or email:

Can I bring my dog?  Sorry, pets are not allowed.

What forms of payment do you accept?  We accept cash, Visa and MasterCard.

What do you do with the hay and straw when maze closes for the year?  During the first week in November, the hay and straw is sold for animal feed and bedding.  If you're interested in a bale or maybe 100 bales, just ask.

What will next year's maze be like?  It's a surprise...  But, we welcome your ideas and suggestions!
