Mazes have been around for a very long time. Hedge mazes have been popular in Europe for hundreds of years. The American Indians used to make mazes out on the flat ground with stones. Twenty to thirty years ago, Nevada hosted some brush type walk through mazes. However, corn mazes are a relatively new idea. The first corn maze of this new venue was in Pennsylvania in 1993. It was a super success, so it wasn't long before corn mazes started popping up all over the place. Today there are hundreds of corn mazes all over the world.
