CORINNA, Maine (WABI) Over the last 14 years, the Thunder Road Farm Corn Maize has been staple in Corinna during the fall season. The 2017 pattern offers a fun and challenging experience for families. The maze is different every year, something owners Barbara and Charles Peavey take pride in.
“This year we're doing the Maine Cabin Masters,” explained Charles. “That's a bunch of people out of Augusta that go around and renovate camps on ponds. We got a picture of a canoe out there and a chain saw and a cabin.”
“Every year we try to use a theme that's unique. We just try to keep it something that's in touch with Maine so Maine people can feel like when they come here maybe they're a part of it. So just always try and find something different.”
Of course the corn maze isn't the only fun thing to do on the farm. There's lots of other games and activities for children young and old.
“We have the bouncy pillow and the cow train and the hayride and large pumpkins for only 4 dollars apiece and it’s just a fun relaxing day.”
Even though the weather hasn’t been exactly fall-like, that hasn’t stopped the Peavey’s from providing a fun family outing.
“This next three weeks are definitely our big three weekends when people come out to get their pumpkins and their corn stocks and their gourds to decorate and hopefully it'll feel more like fall this weekend.”
The farm is open on weekends. Admission is 9 dollars, but children under three get in for free.
“In this world, if they can come out for a day and relax and have fun with their family at an affordable price, it makes us happy.”
And if you get lost in the maze, take this advice from Charles:
“Just keep walking to your right.”
