I read that as "custom porn mazes."

Guess it's time for the reading glasses...

Corn mazes are Chuck Norris' way of saying that sometimes corn needs to lie the fark down.
 
2006-01-13 12:27:07 AM  
As opposed to all those standard, pre-fab corn mazes...

This supports my theory that farmers have waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much time on their hands.

/sorry
 
2006-01-13 2:05:35 AM  
Yay! Just in time for mid-January!

/seriously; look at most of the mazes' dates of operation

Some people have way too much time on their hands.

2006-01-13 2:27:26 AM  
people who think crop circles aren't made by humans need to look at this
 
2006-01-13 2:30:26 AM  
HOLY CROP!

corn mazes are the best when you're stoned

Not a corn maze, but this guy carved his last name in a field. Gotta be the biggest... 3050' by 13,150'. Or 2.5 miles long.

There is a fun "haunted corn maze" in Farmland, Indiana that I've been to a couple of times. It's a lot better than most haunted houses, because it puts you in a pitch black maze with things jumping out at you when you least expect it. I didn't think it was scary, but there were people running terrified out of that place. heheh.

Also, what the heck is the deal with all the chicken little mazes?
 
2006-01-13 4:53:44 AM  
I love these things; only been through one of the state of Wisconsin but it was fun to get lost in

A "Maize Maze" is about a mile away from my house. They've even opened a flight park for ultralight airplanes there. The farmer makes more money on what's being called agri-tourism than he ever made just farming.

The only one I've been through, I thought it looked cool.

This one made me laugh:

Really, why?

Good to know I'm not the only one that instantly thought submitter missed a blatant pun.

The entrance to a corn maze is usually referred to as the 'corn hole'...

Being A City Boy.
I find those "TOTALLY FARKING OUTSTANDING".
Whoever did those should keep up the good work.
 
2006-01-13 8:06:25 AM  
what's with the chicken little shiat? there's like two'ofem
 
2006-01-13 8:14:02 AM  
Kind of puts that whole 'cutting "Will You Marry Me" into the crop' guy into perspective, eh? Jeez, what a low-ambition fark *THAT* guy is.

This crap gets greenlighted but my link to Beermapping.com gets snubbed? WTF?

Nope, that's not corn. Those are TREES.

If you want an idea of how big this is, go to Google Maps and enter "Smithville, TX". Switch to hybrid, then zoom out. I've heard that astronauts and satellites have used it sometimes as a reference for calibrating instruments.

Lots of creativity...

a surprising amount of commercialism/advertising...

And just way, Way, WAY too much NASCAR. (any)
 
2006-01-13 9:51:18 AM  
this was impressive to me before GPS. now-a-days farmers can plot this shiat out on their computer and have the machines do it for him.

it's still cool, just not impressive.

I know it's not corn, that why I said it wasn't a corn maze. The guy was told to clear x% of his property to grassland, and decided to do something creative with it. Not sure how tall the trees or scrub brush is, someday I'll ride the bike out there and try to find it.

DblDad: Shouldn't that be corn maizes?

A couple towns over from here, they have "The Amazing Maize Maze" every year.
 
2006-01-13 10:33:15 AM  
Is it just me, or is the one of the eagle and statue of liberty faked?
 
2006-01-13 10:44:17 AM  
Ah, CUSTOM corn mazes. As opposed to the mass-produced variety.
 
2006-01-13 10:44:31 AM  
Those letters are about 3000' tall. Impressive.

Prairie:

Quite fake indeed.
 
2006-01-13 10:51:01 AM  
Also, the Village Green Nursery one (leaping deer) is fake.

They have a local "Maize Quest" in my area. Every year is a different theme for the maze. Their mazes are huge and intricate, and they feature various types of scavanger hunts. They even had a "survive the night" event for Halloween, where your team had to find their way through the maze without getting caught by one of the "monsters".

My favorite one was the year they had the dragon maze. From the air, the maze looked like a huge dragon breathing fire over a castle. The maze was so large that it would take 5 hours or more to reach all the checkpoints, or 2 hours if you took all the shortcuts.

The maze also featured a Grand Prize drawing for those who completed the "quest" (that year the prize was a 15-speed mountain bike, IIRC). At each checkpoint, you would get a stamp on your entry card, and a clue to that year's riddle. Getting all the checkpoint stamps got you a free T-shirt. At the end of the maze, you had to write down the answer to that year's riddle. The drawing was then held at the end of the season among all entries with the correct answer.

Overall, it was lots of fun, and a great way for your friends to get together.
