We are very excited to announce this years corn maze celebrating the Toronto Maple Leafs 100th season. This theme has been 8 years in the making! Back in 2009, when we celebrated the Montreal Canadiens 100th season, Chip teased his brother-in-law, a diehard Leafs fan, that he’d do something special for Toronto in 2017 – the 50th anniversary of its most recent Stanley Cup victory. When we realized that 2017 was also the Leafs 100th season, the decision to choose this as our maze theme was a no-brainer.
The maze is open from September 9th to October 29th, 2017.

How It's Made
Once we decide on the theme, we have a graphic designer draw up the maze. Once we are happy with the image our survey engineer plots GPS coordinates for the design on his computer. The 6-acre field is prepared and planted in a crisscross pattern to fill out the canopy. The surveyors then come in and lay out the design in the field using GPS and flags. The Hunter crew, equipped with a small sprayer, goes in and removes the corn which needs to be "erased" to make the paths. After several days of work making the trails we use a small drone to inspect the maze and fix any small mistakes.
In order to make visiting the maze safe and fun for everyone, the maze is made up of many large paths. The objective is to find and answer all the trivia questions related to our theme that are hidden throughout the maze.
