Tuesday Oct. 27th update. (CLOSED TUESDAY & WEDNESDAY) Weekend looking great for Friday and Saturday….Sunday is looking better than it did.
Last Saturday on Oct. 24 it was VERY EASY to spot “first timers” at Bestmaze who had been at other corn mazes other years. They were the ones wearing mud boots; while most veterans of Bestmaze showed up in comfortable walking shoes. OUR TRAILS ARE GREAT CONDITION! This past weeks weather is why we went to huge expense of installing 5 miles of underground drainage tile in the maze. And why we grade then hand rake all maze trails shaping them so they shed rain to sides instead of becoming a mud bog. We know of no other maze that spends the time we do in trail prep. Yes hand raking 3 miles of maze trails plus another trail in haunted trail is HUGE amount of work in spring & summer. But this is Bestmaze; and we do the insane amount of work so your experience can be the BEST. If we are open…the trails will be fine. You already missed some perfect days because you thought the field was going to be muddy. We can get hit with a heavy rain in morning and trails are fine that night!
If it is raining at your house, CHECK OUR WEBSITE. We will update here daily during bad weather. EVERY YEAR we see rain systems to west or east of us and those people do not come to the maze even though we never get a drop here. MANY rain systems fall apart coming from west once they hit Lansing area.
