ABOUT "Afton Apple Orchard Corn Maze"
Will you accept the challenge of the maze? This huge 15 acre corn maze is calling your name! The maze is divided into 3 phases. The first phase is for beginners, and those who consider themselves to be directionaly challenged! You can exit there, or go on to the 2nd, more difficult phase. If you are up to the challenge, continue through the 3rd, and most difficult phase. There are over 6 miles of twists and turns! Try it by the light of day, or try your luck by the light of the moon. It's a great time for people of all ages! Ideal for youth groups, school groups, church groups, scout groups, or companies that want to emphasize the importance of team work and building relationships in a relaxed, yet challenging atmosphere.
