Corn Maze and Other Activities in Mountains of NC
As fall approaches the mountains, the Ashe County Corn Maze
returns for another season. Maze owner Marty Peters said that he and co-owner
Daniel Roten started the maze back in 2005 and have continued the tradition
The maze has six different stations where there are a series of
questions and clues. If children correctly answer all of the questions, they
win a prize. "It is sort of like a scavenger hunt,? he said. Walking the maze
typically takes between 25 minutes and a hour. The difference in time depends
on if those participating are stopping at the different stations. While the
maze is big, people have never been lost for substantial amounts of time.
"We?ve never had to go in and get anybody out, " Peters said.
Peters said that
the corn maze has more than the actual maze, including concession stands,
horseshoes , corn hole and other games. "It?s for all ages, not just for kids,?
he said. The corn maze will run from Thursday through Sunday, Sept. 21 to Oct.
27. The maze will be open from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays, 10
a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturdays and 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Sundays. The maze is located
at 644 Roy Goodman Road, in Crumpler.
