As reported by 5 News
, Farmland Adventures
once again flattened its crops to create a ten-acre corn maze in Springdale
, Arkansas. The maze this year depicts the faces of President Barack Obama and presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Organizers say the maze’s theme is to remind people to vote in the upcoming presidential election.
Dwain Parsons,the land owner of Farmland Adventures, said the faces were created by programming a GPS unit into a tractor and tiller.The maze opens September 7th at 3 p.m. and will run till November 3rd. Last year's maze depicted a large kangaroo with a baby in its' pouch. The theme last year, "Outback Adventures," was created in order for visitors to learn about Australia and its' creatures. This years maze size is 18,000 feet. Visitors may come in the evening times as well, to receive a more challenging experience by weaving their way through using only a flashlight.
Last year I was able to visit Farmland Adventures and the maze. It was amazing and had many educational opportunities within it. Inside the maze there were clues and questions to answer along the way so you could advance through as an actual quest. Rubbings
, were also found along the way for which you had to piece together, as you advanced in order to find the next object with a clue. Farmland is truly an educational stop for children and adults alike.
