For a very different take on the landscape, venture into the rows at the Great Vermont Corn Maze (1404 Wheelock Rd., Danville, 802/748-1399, www.vermontcornmaze.com , 10 a.m.–4 p.m. daily, Aug.–Sept.; 10 a.m.–3 p.m. daily Oct., $9 adults, $7 seniors and children 4–14, children under 4 free), more than two miles of twisting confusion carved each year amidst 12-foot-tall corn stalks.
Owners Mike and Dayna Boudreau have been constructing the maze for better than five years, getting progressively trickier with each course. Participants quest for the elusive “bell of success” in the center of the maze, which can take anywhere from one to four hours. If that sounds too tough, the complex has a smaller corn maze for kids, along with a barnyard mini-golf course among the animal paddocks.
To relive Children of the Corn, come in October when the farm is transformed into “Dead North: Farmland of Terror” just in time for Halloween.
