We arrived at Kersey Valley, paid our admission, and got our scratch off cards. The person at the entrance of the maize explained that there were 6 kiosks located through out the maze that we would be searching for. Each of our scratch off cards contained three clues and the clues would be helpful in knowing which slot to slide your card into before you scratched it off. Each scratch off would reveal points.T he object of the maze was to find all 6 kiosks and scratch off the most points possible.
She told us that three of the kiosks were easy to locate and the other three much harder. We took our scratch off cards and entered the maze. We found the first kiosk pretty quickly. The next two took longer to find and we were getting hot.
I had failed to bring any water into the maze and that was a poor decision. It was 86 degrees on Saturday and if you've never been in a corn field, let me warn you, there is absolutely zero breeze getting through that corn. Zero.
We were hot. And sweaty. And sadly, I was the sweatiest one of all. But we persevered. Although about an hour into it, the kids were done. We had only found 4 of the 6 kiosks and I was determined that we should finish. We kept going around in what felt like circles. It all started to look the same and even though the maze is 3.2 miles, it felt like we walked every inch of it twice.
We searched for twenty more minutes and finally we were done. I hated that we didn't find all six kiosks but we had fun searching and would definitely go back again next year.
Here we are at the entrance to the park:
After we exited the maze, the kids had fun jumping on this giant air pillow:
