Like many other corn mazes, the Fritzler maze in Greeley, Colo., is also a working farm. Corn mazes are a great way to get people out to the farm to buy produce and stroll through the pumpkin patch. Even though the Fitzlers have only been at it since 2000, they managed to construct the largest maze in Colorado. Since then, they've built mazes with themes ranging from tributes to NFL quarterbacks (John Elway) to country-western cowboy singers (Chris Le Doux). In 2008, owner Glen Fritzler paid tribute to his own parents, the aerial view revealing an incredible likeness of the pair. The maze covers more than 15 acres of ground and has two miles of walking paths. How long does it take to navigate a maze that large? About two hours. If you get lost, 10 stations around the maze will guide your way. If that doesn't work, employees are also peppered throughout to lend a hand.
