Get lost in the stalks: Corn Mazes in Maine
Tackle one of these corn labyrinths with only a few clues – and your own husky intuition – to guide you. The fall corn maze is solvable, so they say, although it’s rumored some maze-goers went in and never came out. Mwuhahaha.
Don’t let the fear of never making it out alive deter you, but you might want to keep your cellphone handy anyway, just in case you need to phone emergency services to get yourself choppered out of there.
