Not your typical trip to the strawberry fields, this haunted corn maze is the perfect October activity. The third-annual Rogers Farm Corn Maze, 3831 NW 156th Ave., is now open, and it offers the perfect mix of fright and fall. Here's what to expect.
1. It IS scary.
Don't be fooled. Just because the maze is family-friendly during the day doesn't mean it can't deliver at night.
"Oh yeah, expect to be scared," said Larry Rogers, owner of Rogers Farm. "We got a couple chain saws out there, some scary suits and masks."
2. You will get lost.
With 10 acres of corn, it's almost impossible to avoid. But what's a night at a corn maze without about an hour or two of wandering around scared, cold and lost? So make sure you gather around your favorite group of people and wander through the maze. It could take you a while.
"The maze was scary, but it was a lot of fun. We all got lost for quite a while," Kjerstine Payne, a 19-year-old general business studies major, said of the maze.
3. The spook trail.
This is a special feature of the maze that runs through the woods located on the farm. But keep an eye out; the trail isn't your average hiking root.
"We got a few things out in the spook trail that work pretty well," Rogers commented.
4. Not too much "Paranormal Activity."
"We try to scare, but it is more friendly scare. We aren't out there grabbing people," Rogers said.
No Halloween Horror Nights, this family-owned and operated maze is a nod to the nostalgic days where fear factors were as simple as spooky ghosts and scarecrows.
5. While you are on the farm make sure to pick up your Halloween essentials and get your fill of fall.
Pumpkins and tractor pulled hayrides are available.
Rogers Corn Maze will be open until Nov. 13. The haunted corn maze comes alive at 8 p.m. and goes until midnight Friday and Saturday. The costs for the corn maze is $8. For more information, visit rogers-farm.com.
