Most of the time getting lost is just plain frustrating. But at the Great Godfrey Corn Maze, getting lost is part of the fun! Two family-friendly mazes are cut out of seven acres of cornfield. The "Alice In Wonderland" inspired theme will have visitors twisting and turning around every stalk. In mid-October, an additional third maze opens for their Halloween Spooktacular. While the mazes are the main attraction, for a few bucks kids can take a hayride, shoot ears of corn out of a cannon or zoom through the sky on a zipline.
On October 2 the Mazeis hosting their annual Fall Corn Festival. This one-day event features music, a cow train, food, crafts, antique tractor and engine exhibit, kiddie pedal tractor pull and cook-off contests. This free event is being held at Glazebrook Park from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
