Funny… if we were forced to enter the maze of a mouse and told to find our way to the cheese, we would resent it and feel trapped. But this time of year thousands of people voluntarily enter human-sized mazes for the sake of fun. And fun it is! It is corn maze time. Slip on the sweater and the tennis shoes, it is time to find the cheese.
The idea of human navigated mazes dates back 4,000 years in ancient Greek myths. The mazes were not used for fun however; they were processionals and rites of passage. Today Adrian Fisher of Dorset, England is considered the master of mazes and his company, “Maize Maze,” is a site where farmers can get one of his designs and begin creating a masterpiece.
Here are some tips to mastering the mazes this season:
- If you have little kids – visit during the daylight hours… the adults and teenagers often prefer the nighttime maze activities with a dash of haunting.
- If you are up for a little nighttime terror – bring your flashlight and watch Stephen King’s “Children of the Corn” before you visit.
- Bring an extra set of clothes just in case the dust and dirt is too much.
- Wear really comfortable closed-toe shoes.
- Dress in layers… Sometimes it is cool on the outskirts of the maze and much warmer inside where the wind cannot find you.
- If you live in an area with mosquitoes – bring the bug spray!
- Bring bottled water for the bigger mazes… some are more than 20 acres!
- Visit some Rhode Island corn mazes…
