Hey, maybe it's corny, but a corn maze always sounds like a fun Fall adventure to me! Since there's one in New York City that really leans into the corniness and calls itself the Amazing Maize Maze, you know I had to check it out. On Indigenous People's Day, my boyfriend and I swung over to the Queens County Farm Museum in Queens, New York to get our puzzle fix. This year's theme is painter Georgia O'Keeffe! That means all of the clues hidden throughout the maze relate to the artist, her life, and her work. l happily got mud on my boots while learning about O'Keeffe's 2014 auction record for female artists and the fact that she studied at Columbia University's Teacher's College. You're handed a flag and activity booklet at the start of the maze and then weave (or bumble) your way through the cornfield, completing a crossword puzzle, maze map, and labyrinth in the process. Oh, and cute alert: the pieces of paper you need for your maze map are tucked inside of white mailboxes! When you finish the maze, you tell the announcer your team name and she proclaims your victory on a mic for all to hear. Our name? The Corn Daddies.
For those seeking a creative take on the ol' corn maze classic, I highly recommend this one! The Amazing Maize Maze runs through October 29th. Adult admission is $12. Find out more here.
