Many farms have corn mazes, but not many can live up to the size and detail of the Richardson Adventure Farm Corn Maze. With its nine to 10miles of trails winding through 28 acres of live corn, this year’s maze turns back time to pay tribute to the movie Jurassic Park, which hit screens 30 years ago.
The maze in Spring Grove, Illinois, is actually created out of four smaller mazes. Each one has its dedicated in-and-out path. There are multiple checkpoints throughout the maze and three bridges that will help you find your bearings while looking at the map.
Finding the checkpoints is the challenge and the way to solve the maze, but if you have had enough and need to get out and get a fresh donut or a cup of hot chocolate for added strength and stamina, you can find your way out in just minutes.
A perimeter path surrounds the entire maze, and there are no dead ends in this maze. And it is entirely up to you whether to do one maze or all four. All the fun starts on September 9!
If corn mazes aren’t your thing, Richardson Adventure Farms has other adventures and 13 acres of sunflower fields. The sunflowers are planted in intriguing and beautiful designs with a simple three-mile trail to stroll through.
