Welcome to the Official Boiler Mazer Web site!

The Purdue Boiler Mazer was a five-acre corn field maze designed especially for the 2001 Farm Progress Show (FPS) held in Tippecanoe County, Indiana on 25 - 27 September 2001. The maze featured over two miles of trails and was designed to emulate the widely recognized symbol of Purdue University, the Boilermaker Special.

While the Farm Progress Show 2001 is now history, these Web pages serve to preserve the memories of what was one of the more popular tourist attractions at the Show. Nearly 10,000 visitors ventured into the complex trail system of the Boiler Mazer during the three-day Show. Those patient enough to complete a six-station scavenger hunt were rewarded with a poster-sized version of the Boiler Mazer design. Proceeds from sales of specially-made Boiler Mazer t-shirts were contributed to the local Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund effort coordinated by the Purdue Student Government.
