Passports to aMAZEing Learning

We include educational signs about plant and animal life at the passport posts in the maze.   Speaking of passport posts, in the past we have had 10 spots in our maze where you see numbered posts.  We will still have that!  Guests carry a trivia passport on a topic of their choice and a correct answer gives a clue about which way to turn. But this year, you can play on your smartphone or create your own trivia card.  Click here for Customized Passports.
