Every year we hear about the Great Vermont Corn Maze, but this is the first time we’ve gone. We have corn maze experience, of course, (2014, 2013, 2012, probably other years, and 2008) but nothing like this! They say the average person take about two hours to get through. We spent two hours and fifteen minutes inside, with moods ranging from excitement to frustration to annoyance to excitement to boredom to excitement again. We were in there for awhile!
They stop admitting people at 2pm and start helping people at 4pm. We got there just before two so by the end we got a few tiny hints from the staff along the way to get out. Hints like which way to turn at the next junction, which were barely helpful. I was joking that we would need to get airlifted out, but instead we ended part of a large group all trying to get out and sharing info about hints we got or paths we tried. Eventually we all made it out, no airlifting required!
Then we played in the kid village, visited the petting zoo, played gopher in the big gopher tunnels, and jumped from one giant hay bale to the next in the hay barn. Really the kids did all that while Alana and I made dinner plans and turned off our brains for a few minutes. :-)
Overall a fun way to spend a lovely fall day!
