The Amazing Maize Maze ("AMM") was conceived by Don Frantz in 1991.

After two years of development in the American adaptation of the art of the maze, the first modern 'maize maze' was produced on the Pennsylvania farmland in 1993 and won a place in the Guinness Book of World Records.

With music, script, interactive audience activities and directions the maze was recognized as a new family entertainment by the media throughout the United States. For two more years the production and operation aspects of the maze and the rules of the game were refined to provide a successful entertainment experience.

In 1995 the Amazing Maize Maze received worldwide acclaim and established new educational and corporate team-building programs. In 1996 the American Maze Company ("AMC") was formed with the goal of 'spreading the word' and bringing the Amazing Maize Maze's unique show to the farmlands across the country. In the summer of 1996 over 55,000 people walked the maze. In the summer of 1997 over 67,000 relished in getting lost in three different corn-fusing farm fields.   Numbers have been increasing exponentially ever since.
