The ice maze built for the 2010 Buffalo Powder Keg Winter Festival set the world record for the largest ice maze with measurement of 12,855.68 square feet.
The maze which was organized by Roaming Buffaloes features more than 21000 blocks of ice and each weighs 300 pounds. The maze is decorated with red and blue lights and its centre is shaped like a buffalo. The ice necessary for the construction of the maze was supplied freely by Artic Glaciers Inc. The maze was designed by Dean Sutton Architects and completed with the participation of 50 volunteers building it through snow, freezing rain.
