Why You Should Attend a Corn Maze!

Why+You+Should+Attend+a+Corn+Maze%21

As Halloween quickly approaches and fall is already in full swing, people are already finding ways to celebrate the season. That could be by enjoying pumpkin-flavored items, carving pumpkins, or just enjoying the turning of leaves. There is always a hobby for someone to enjoy, though going through Corn mazes is something I don’t hear a lot about. Corn mazes are appealing because they’re harmless fun in general. They’re also a step down in the horror department from haunted houses but still eerie. The Liberty Corn Maze’s layout changes every year, which keeps it from being uninteresting. Going is a fun choice for an outing with family and friends, and by participating in the corn maze, you can support the people who put the whole thing together.

If you’re looking for something other than a haunted house that’s a creepy experience, then going to a corn maze might be for you. Attending a corn maze doesn’t have to be too scary unless you want it to be. Even then, you’re trying to find your way through all the tall stalks at night. That may sound scary, but it’s really just using your brain to find the exit. Going with friends and family can make the experience twice as better because you can guide them through the maze, or they could lead you. You don’t have to worry about getting scared in front of your peers because you can scare them yourself.

One nice thing is that the design of the mazes changes every year, at least at the Liberty Corn Maze. This year, the design honors KC Current, the women’s soccer team. The year before was the Welcome To Missouri Sign, and the year before that was a depiction of Lewis & Clark. Even though you can’t see the design on the ground unless you have the activity card, it’s fun to traverse the new pathways each year and find each checkpoint hiding in the routes. Each route throughout the maze is of varying difficulty. If you have the time, you could go through each route, but it’s tough.

There is usually an entrance fee to these corn mazes, and the price isn’t generally much. The entrance charge encourages these mazes to keep opening each year and to continue the hard work that makes people happy. When you first enter the Liberty Corn Maze, you can purchase flashlights and other things to help you through the journey. These aren’t required, but they could be helpful. All the money matters to the family-owned business, so if you’re feeling nice if you visit, consider buying a souvenir or a shirt.

While corn mazes may not be for everyone, you should still visit once before you write them off. It’s just a nice place to go and celebrate the fall season and bring some friends. Corn mazes are a comfortable amount of creepy and refreshing each year. You can tell there is love put into the detailing of the new picture each year, so supporting the place by just going is enough. It isn’t too late as well– even though it opens in September– the maze is cut down by the 30th of October, so go while you still can!
