Heroic Corn Maze at Fort Ticonderoga

Fort Ticonderoga’s Heroic Maze: A Corn Maze Adventure!

Share time with family and friends while exploring a unique corn maze located on the shores of Lake Champlain at Fort Ticonderoga. Getting lost in this life-size puzzle is part of the fun as you look for history clues among towering stalks of corn! Find clues connected to our story as you make your way through the maze!

The Heroic Maze is designed to be challenging, but still allows visitors to exit quickly if needed. The maze is divided into two phases so you can customize your experience:

Kiddie Maze 
A short maze specially designed for our youngest visitors is a fun introduction to corn mazes.This maze has twists and turns but no dead ends.  Recommended for children up to age four with adult supervision.

"Engineer a Fort" Maze Quest 
Hidden in the maze are 8 stations each representing a component of an 18th-century fort.  Players are given a Quest Card to collect a stamp from each station. It takes perseverance and skill to find all the objects.  Great fun for all ages!
