The Peck family has
done it again at this year's Lincoln Corn Maze. Owner Jill Peck
gratefully expresses, "We never could have done it without the
tireless help of numerous friends."
The amazing 9-acre corn maze will open Friday for its second
season. This year's maze -- which is even bigger and more fun-filled
than last year -- features an original design of a charming, old-time
farm scene. Navigate your way through the giant hay barn, John Deere
tractor, towering grain silo, old-fashioned windmill, apple tree
(complete with a tire swing) and the larger-than-life rooster.
Play along the paths as you hunt for "chicken" eggs, swing on the
tire swing, climb through the giant tractor tire and search for the
Choose your own strategy of exploration through this
unforgettable maze as you maneuver through the standing corn, using
your own sense of direction, or stroll at your leisure, guided by a
convenient map. And the fun doesn't end when the sun goes down.
Visit after dark for a new twist to the excitement as you explore by
moonlight or flashlight.
New attractions for this year include old-fashioned games and
races at the Tire Track; the No-Left-Turn Maze; the Puzzling Pallet
Maze, including a two-story fort; Grandma's Garden Hose Maze; and a
"hot off the grill" barbecue with home-cooked fixin's. Additionally,
the Tangled-Web Rope Maze is twice the size of last year's maze, and
the Shoot-Out giant water balloon slingshot is still a challenge to
kids of all ages.
Your visit won't be complete until you have enjoyed the free
hayride and taken a few moments to meet the friendly farm animals at
Farmer Ben's Animal Corral. This is one unforgettable experience of
real down-on-the-farm fun! Or, as the Lincoln Corn Maze slogan says,
it is "More fun for the whole family than you can imagine!"
