Let's get lost
Welcome to Mazezilla! This four-hectare corn maze in the Poconos region of the US’ northeastern state of Pennsylvania boasts a unique corn maze design each year. Don't worry, if you take a wrong turn, you won't be lost forever. 'Corn helpers' are scattered throughout the maze to help confused maze-goers find their way again, and 'tower people' keep a watchful eye over proceedings. This year, visitors to the maze are asked to wear masks, stay at least 1.8 metres apart, and take other precautions, but organisers are still promising a 'spooktacular 2020'.
While mazes and labyrinths date back more than 4,000 years, the first modern corn maze was created in Annville, Pennsylvania, in 1993. It was constructed on just over a hectare of land and was named the world’s largest corn maze by the Guinness Book of World Records. The current record for largest corn maze went to Cool Patch Pumpkins in 2014 for their 24-hectare maze in Dixon, California.
