Feel like a challenge? Bring your friends, bring your compass, and tackle this year's MAiZE creation! The MAiZE has been our signature attraction from the start, each year featuring a different design that is sure to get you corn-fused. The MAiZE is carved into 18 acres of corn, and is divided into two phases.
2019 MAiZE Design:
The Very Hungry Caterpillar
Those who venture into the cornfield will inch their way through the twists and turns of a Very Hungry Caterpillar among the one-million stalks of corn ultimately destined for cattle feed.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar, a 50-year old children’s book authored by Eric Carle, follows a week in the life of a caterpillar who eats a different type of produce daily, eventually binging on a ridiculous assortment of foods followed by one nice green leaf in preparation for his transformation into a beautiful butterfly. The image carved into the field is a nod to the vast bounty of Idaho farms and ranches which produce more than 180 different commodities that find their way on to dinner tables around the world.
Not sure if you want to tackle the whole MAiZE? Try our Mini MAiZE, set in the same cornfield, but much shorter and easier to navigate. This is intended for the little tikes who want the experience of the corn but primarily want to enjoy the other activities.
