The annual Cajun Country Corn Maze returns this Saturday with a new twist (and a few new turns).
Year after year, area locals come to this lot to try their hand at navigating the extensive corn maze. Spanning 7.5 acres, this year’s Cajun Country Corn Maze comes back with a new design representing the importance of unity in combating the pandemic.
It takes the average person between 60 and 90 minutes to make their way through to the end of the tricky route. And not to worry if you get lost. ‘Corn cops’ are stationed throughout the maze to point you in the right direction, but only if you say ‘I give up!’ The popular corn field commences its twenty-first season this Saturday, October 10 and runs through Sunday, November 29.
One of the biggest features the maze is known for is the Haunted Corn Maze, normally offered during October nights. Due to concerns regarding the pandemic, Haunted Nights will not be included in this year’s festivities. However, there are still plenty of other activities to look forward to. Visitors can choose between two packages. The first includes the corn maze, pig races, animal petting area, slides, corn crib, pirate ship, playground area, duck races and the spider web. The second includes package 1 plus unlimited rides on the bee train, bucking cow train, pumpkin train, jump pad and 3 tokens for activities.
In addition to their own safety guidelines, the maze asks that all visitors practice social distancing while on the farm and strongly encourages wearing a mask when in places where distancing is not possible. See the full list of safety guidelines and more information here.
