For 10 years Great Adventure Corn Mazes (GACM) has been working with the Schopf Family at Hilltop Dairy. Each spring, when the plants are short, GACM brings in a computerized corn-cutting machine, GPS-guided via satellite, to carve out a maze in detail.
This year, a cake and candles for “Cookie the Cow,” Dairy View’s mascot, is engraved in 30 acres of corn with more than 10 miles of trails. There are three separate mazes, with levels of difficulty ranging from beginner to expert.
A fourth maze, the FSI (farm scene investigation), tests players’ wits over a 1.6-mile trail as they try to solve a who-what-where crime scene investigation.
Visitors of the maze will also have a chance to enter their name for an i-Pod drawing, which will take place at the end of the season.
The corn maze is open daily. Pumpkins and gourds will be available at the Dairy View Country Store, located on County Road I, just east of Carlsville.
Admission to the corn maze is $7.50 for adults, $5.50 for children, and free for children 5 and under. Maze players are advised to dress appropriately, wear suitable footwear, and expect to be in the maze approximately 2 hours.
