Who had the bright idea of a corn maze anyhow?
The history of mazes( aka labyrinths) goes back thousands of years, but ones made from corn-not so very long ago. At Lebanon Valley College in Pennsylvania,Don Frantz and Adrian Fisher designed and built the first corn maze in the US in 1993. Mr. Fisher of Dorset, England is considered the world’s top maze designer, with 6 Guinness World Records, and numerous other awards- so, no slouch to corn maze patterns.
Corn mazes are all the rage for fall. Get the family outside in the fresh air, good clean fun for all,yada,yada, yada.
Still, don’t knock it until you’ve tried it,right?
I’ve ‘enjoyed’ a corn maze trek with a twist-Zombies!
Davison’s Farm in Falmouth, NS host’s a Corn Maze every fall beginning in early September, and although I am not a fan of being in a situation when I don’t know where the exit is-I decided to try out.
View the video below to see if I did find the exit.
And then, you can check the accompanying list of corn mazes to try one for yourself near you! Always CALL before you go to ensure the property is open.
