As the geese overhead signal the onset of brisk days that turn into colder nights, it is time to bundle up and meander through one of the corn mazes located in the Detroit Metro area. Corn mazes are an amazing feat of nature, that, with the help of human hands, are transformed into something miraculous. Mazes offers children, teens and adults the opportunity to have unabashed fun or experience extreme terror, either of which will be the source of great memories for years to come.
