September 16 – October 31 – WELCOME TO THE FIRST CORN MAZE AT THE BUFFALO BILL CULTURAL CENTER
Our first corn maze is completed and ready for you, your family, school group or community club to take to the paths. Landowners Gary and Raelene Keller planted the corn for the maze at the site of the Buffalo Bill Bronze Sculpture and home of the Oakley Corn Festival and the Kansas State Cornhusking Contest. The maze, cut by Oakley’s American Implement’s Jason Pfeifer and Bert Maxfield, features twists and turns and even a few dead ends.
The Corn Maze is open to the public daily from dawn until dusk until the end of October. For your safety, wear shoes and socks, stay on the cleared paths and watch your step. Enter the maze under the golden entrance archway created by Oakley’s, Rod Bates.
There are eight numbered Corn Fun Fact panels to help you find your way. If you find all the fun facts in order, you will have successfully completed the nearly half mile maze and exit after #8 on the path to the left of the entrance. Need a shorter route for the little ones? You can cut across at fun fact #2, #3 or #4 and pick up #7 and exit after #8.
Funded by a grant received from the Midwest Energy Community Fund, the Fun Facts make our maze both fun and educational. After you tour the maze, come on in to the center and take the The Corn Maze Quiz
Mr. Shucks will greet you if you hit a dead end. Shucks!, you’ll have to try another path.
