The 16th annual corn maze at Long & Scott Farm opens on October 6. In previous years, the popular seasonal attraction reportedly brought in an estimated 1,500 - 2,000 weekend visitors.
Visitors that dare can enter the seven-acre corn 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, mist maze, hayrides, rope maze, country market and cafe. There is also a quaint wooden castle very similar to the play fort recently removed in Mount Dora’s Gilbert Park.
Visitors can grab a bite to eat at the farm’s Country Cafe or choose a food truck
