    The Oprah maze covers more than nine acres, versus the Dole Pineapple maze which covers slightly more than two acres. So while the Oprah maze is definitely larger in area, the Dole maze may very well be longer. (this site says the total length is 1.7 miles)

    I don't know if it is anymore, but the Dole maze was recognized by the Guinness Book as the "world's largest maze" in 2001. And I think that probably only includes permanent mazes, so if the Oprah corn field maze was there in 2001 it probably wouldn't have qualified.

    I've already posted the honeycomb maze above, but nice repost.

    And yes, oprah is a repost, but I think it's bigger, not longer.

    unfortunately there are a few mazes out there that claim to be the worlds largest. If memory serves me correctly (and it usually doesn't!) i think the latest Guiness book of records, or the previous edition lists the largest mazes.

    (sorry, dont have it handy, but i believe that has been updated from the edition that Cermo lists.)

    Default World's largest corn maze

    I just found this thread on world's largest corn maze.

    I have found what must be the largest maize maze or corn maze in the world in York England. It claims to be 15 football pitches which is over 30 acres.

    Aerial image of last year's star trek themed maze on their webiste.

    Yes welcome t GEH too.

    What to be the biggest mase is allways a discussion theme. The biggest permanent maze is the Peacemaze at Castlewellan, Northern Ireland.

    Here are links with a placemark for GE and to the Peacemaze:
