The Guinness world record for the largest temporary corn maze measured 163,853.83 m² (40.489 acres) when opened to the public in September 2007 at Coolpatch Pumpkins in Dixon, California, USA.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest permanent hedge maze: the Pineapple Garden Maze at the Dole Plantation in Wahiawa, Hawaii, USA, which has a total area of 12,745.79 mÂ² (3.15 acres) and total path length of 3.962 km (2.46 miles).
The 96,847-square foot Garden Cents Maze easily eclipsed the Guinness World Records minimum requirement of 12,916.7 square feet.
Brian Jentzsch, builder and designer of the maze says, " It took about 3 weeks to build and probably 2 weeks to design."
"This maze is a year-long process for us," Jentszch said. "We have 3-D mazes this year and mazes that go up and down."
