Follow the Yellow with Green Letter Maze signs and your will find your way to “Getting Lost” at the Maze.

The Maize Maze will provide you, your family or group with and “Electrifying” experience. This years design is CFL Charlie, the energy efficiency mascot for Touchstone Energy Cooperatives.

The cost is $6 for ages 12 and up, $4 for ages 6-11 and free for ages 5 and under
Contacting LaVern Swenson at 563-419-1133

The Maze Maize is also open for Groups by appointment, like the scouts, 4-H, Schools, Church groups and more. If your group has 10 or more the cost will be $3 per person for all ages. Contact LaVern at 563-419-1133 to schedule your group’s field trip. Field trip dates are limited though, because, the last day that groups are able to visit will be Oct 29 during the day.

Why you ask are the group field trip and weekend visit only occurring until Oct. 29?
That is a good question. It is because the Maize maze will soon be “Haunted”.

Once again the Haunted Halloween Maize Maze will occur!
Friday, October 29
Saturday, October 30
6:30 – 9 PM Each Night
$5.00 per person for all ages

The Postville Jr. Class and the Valley CEW SODA Students will be helping to make this year's Maize Maze an “Electrifyingly Spooky!” experience.

So come out “Get LOST” and “Get Scarred”!
