Get lost! And have a blast doing it!
The 17th annual Corn Maze Adventure at Long & Scott Farm opens on October 5. The popular seasonal attraction reportedly brings in an estimated 1500-2000 weekend visitors.
This year’s theme of the giant 6.5-acre corn maze is “Feel Whole” and features various healthy outdoor activities carved into the rows of corn. Visitors that dare can enter the maze, sponsored by AdventHealth, 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 half-acre mini-maze for smaller guests.
The two mazes have lots of paths and plenty of room. Employees inside the maze and on a bridge monitor and help guests navigate the rows of corn. Guests are asked to divide into groups of four to six people, with an adult in each group, and then enter the maze with a flag and a game sheet.
The popular weekend attraction also includes a lot of fun outdoor activities for kids, including an oversized jumping pillow, 60' super slide, kids' zip line, mist maze and hayrides. Food vendors are onsite, as well as a country market and cafe.

Latest entry is 3 p.m. The farm is located at 26216 County Road 448A, Mount Dora. Admission is $12; children 3 and under are free.
