Coming in at 53 acres (13 acres larger than 2007's Guinness Book of World Records layout) this year’s design will be bigger and more challenging that ever before. Starting out with just a few acres and a lofty goal, the brothers began building their mazes with an eye to the Guinness prize. They create a fresh design each year for the maze, starting with an idea and hand-cutting each and every turn of the massive design. The patch also features a scarecrow contest, tee pee village, and pedal carts and big tricycles for a ride through the patch. Oh, and they’re selling pumpkins too. Thousands of them. Come get yours at Cool Patch Pumpkins in Dixon! No strollers or wagons allowed in the maze. Backpacks are recommended for small children.The corn maze opens every day at 9am and closes at 8pm. When going through the maze at night we highly advise that guests carry a flashlight and warm clothing.
