How the Maize Trail works
We need you and your friends to help by following the directions and locating the clues on the information panels. When you answer the questions in the trail booklet you should then be able to decipher the password to pass over The Magic Rainbow.
Please remember that other families will want to enjoy what Dorothy and Kite are doing so please stick to the path and don’t damage the maize.
- Follow the directions and map around the Maize Field at Churchfields to discover the clues.
- The information panels can be found throughout the Maize and are attached to the posts. Each information panel contains information about the mission.
- Match up each marker with the clue found on its page within the booklet, answer the question then enter your correct answer on the answer page.
When you have gone Over the Rainbow you can head towards the Sunflower Picking Area.
Pick your sunflower and head back to the pod or café for a well-deserved ice cream!
