• Ac­cord­ing to Don, it takes an av­er­age of 30 to 45 min­utes to go through one of his mazes. He aims to keep them just sim­ple enough so around 80 per­cent of vis­i­tors can com­plete them in that time. A large maze—20 acres, for ex­am­ple—could re­quire two or more hours to solve.

• A good sense of di­rec­tion can help you get through a com­plex maze more quickly. And for those who get lost eas­ily, there’s usu­ally a quick-exit fea­ture cut into the larger mazes.

• Don says to for­get about us­ing the GPS on your phone. Al­though it can help to some de­gree with ori­en­ta­tion, it can’t an­tic­i­pate the turns and dead ends de­signed to block the path.

• One of the best ways to pre­pare is to visit the farm’s web­site and print a pic­ture of the maze to use as a map.
