As you journey through acres of pathways inside the corn maze, you find pictures and clues to help you play the game, which makes learning about pirates’ fun for the whole family. Compete with friends to collect all the hidden clues as you hunt for hints and answers for your game sheet. Get into the great outdoors and soak up the fresh country air.
