Get lost. And have a blast doing it.
The annual corn maze at Long & Scott Farm opens on October 3. The popular seasonal attraction reportedly brings in an estimated 1500-2000 weekend visitors.
A police car, fire truck and ambulance are cut into pathways in the 7-acre corn maze to convey this year's salute to first-responders. Visitors that dare can enter the maze and attempt to find their way out of the tall and twisting corn field. No need to panic. It's a friendly day of fun and before an anxiety attack kicks in, participants can raise a flag to surrender and be promptly rescued.
There is also a one-acre corn maze for smaller guests, plus a 3-acre live Tree Maze in the shape on an ear of corn. The popular attraction also includes an over-sized jumping pillow, 60' super slide, kids' zip line, covered picnic areas, tree maze, mist maze, hayrides, rope maze, country market and cafe.
