Lost in the Maize


So Edz and I decided to head out to the country this afternoon.  Our destination? The Corn Maze in The Plains.


In addition to the corn maze there are some farm animals, a tractor ride, and lots of pumpkins.  These piglets are where baby back ribs come from.


It's $10 each to get in.  We had a couple of cheeseburgers, checked out the gift shop, and then went to the maze entrance.


The theme this year was sharks!  You couldn't tell from the ground, but from the air the maze was a giant shark.  And there was shark trivia all along the way.


I think we were a little late in the season; most of the corn looked pretty dead.  But I had no idea corn grew so tall!  It was over 10 feet.  I thought it only grew to about half that height.


There were six stations along the way that gave hints on how to navigate the maze.  You didn't really need the hints because it wasn't really that complicated.


You could also make rubbings of the map, which wasn't helpful at all because you had no idea of knowing where in the maze you were.  Well, except most of the corn was dead and you could see right through it and guess the right way.


But yeah, it was a lot of fun.  Except for the mud.


Edz didn't like the mud.


It took us about 30 minutes to navigate our way through.


And at the very end there was this raised bridge where it was fun to watch the people below.


And at the end I got to shoot pumpkins with a giant sling shot.  All in all, a fun afternoon.
