Have you ever been to a corn maze? Oh my goodness, it is a must do activity for your family. We had the BEST time at Uncle Shucks Corn Maze this past weekend.
When we arrived we met up with the owner, Mike, and got a glimpse at past mazes and learned all about the history of Uncle Shucks.
The mazes are A-MAZE-ing!
It is something else to see the precision in the mazes, and to learn how they are designed and then cut into the corn.
I had no idea that there is a company that helps with designs and then travels all over the country cutting out corn mazes each year. So even if you don’t live close enough to visit Uncle Shucks, you can probably find one in your area to visit. They are really Corn-tastic!
This is the 2012 maze at Uncle Shucks. You see all the little swirls? Yeah…I think I visited EVERY ONE of them!
It was really corn-fusing.
I LOVE all their signs.
And make sure to watch out for the Corn Cops! They can help you along the way.
Yes, I know…I am a little Corn-y.
I just can’t seem to help myself.
And even though we got instructions, were showed how to read the map and given pointers…we still got lost. Several times.
I mean really, it all begins to look the same. Every turn and twist looks like the last, and it is hard to figure out which path to take. Bric eventually figured it all out and led us to each checkpoint and we made it out. WoooHooo!! He is such a great navigator!
The great thing about Uncle Shucks is that there are different mazes, each having 6 checkpoints and one having a Clue type game. After we did the first maze, got all 6 checkpoints IN ORDER, we went and sat at a picnic table and had a cold drink and a snack. Then we went back and finished the second part. I wish we had taken a picnic with us because it was so much fun watching all the folks there having a great day with family and friends. Shooting the corn cannon, picking out pumpkins, taking the hay ride, feeding the goats, the little ones making their way through the soybean maze, etc.
And if you go at night, they have a bonfire where you can sit and meet folks from all over, have a cup of hot chocolate, roast marshmallows and if you are really brave…you can attempt the haunted maze. The haunted maze is the pumpkin shaped part in the picture of the maze. I hear it is Scream-Tastic!
We spent about 3 hours on our trip, but when we go again, we will be staying for all the evening activities. And we will be going again! You can spend anywhere from 30 minutes up to several hours, it is really all up to you.
