Verona Maize

Verona Maize - Gary Wood CDJ Blog

Fall is finally here, and nothing says autumn-time celebration like a good old-fashioned maze. At Gary Wood CDJ, we’re lucky to have perhaps the best maze in Missouri just fifteen minutes away. The Verona Maize is operated by the GRIP Boys Home, and was started 18 seasons ago. This 7-acre cornfield maze attracts families and friends from all over the area, and all proceeds go towards the GRIP Boys Home.

In fact, people of all ages are likely to have a swell time in the Verona Maize. The maze twists and turns for two miles, leading explorers to fake exits and dead ends. The maze takes an average of 45 minutes to complete. Once you’re finished, you can celebrate your win by participating in some of the other family-friendly activities on sight. Gather the group for an old-fashioned hayride, or give the kids a few minutes of wild fun on the giant jumping pillow.

The Verona Maize opens on September 23, 2017 and runs through October 28, 2017. The season includes admission to the maze, courtyard activities, and even offers haunted hayrides and events to spook you into the Halloween spirit. You’ll have plenty of chances over the next month to pay a visit to one of Missouri’s best fall sights, so don’t miss your chance.
