The 13th Annual Corn Maze at Lyman Orchards kicks off this Saturday, September 1 at 10:00 a.m., with a ribbon-cutting ceremony fit for fans of two of America's favorite pastimes: the great sport of baseball and getting lost just for the fun of it.
Designed by the country's leading agricultural maze designer, Brett Herbst, the Maze is grown and cut into a four-acre field of giant corn, featuring the logos of the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox cut into twisting and winding pathways. The Corn Maze is within a few miles of the actual geographical and emotional center of this historic rivalry.
Visitors wandering through the Maze will enjoy fun baseball trivia and tests their knowledge of Yankees and Red Sox history with special questions that may provide clues to the Maze’s exit.
Lyman's Corn Maze is All-Star Fun for kids of all ages, family groups, old friends, school classes, teams of business people, even first dates and long-time mates.
According to John Lyman III, Executive Vice President and 8th generation family member, even some marriage proposals have occurred on the Corn Maze grounds.
"The corn maze has become one of Connecticut's most visited seasonal attractions." according to Lyman. "This uniquely disorienting experience has been enjoyed by more than 350,000 visitors since it's inception in 2000. We are thrilled to partner with Major League Baseball, the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox.
"But it's not just all fun and games," said Lyman, "The corn maze also helps a great cause. One dollar of every maze admission ticket is donated every year to the American Cancer Society."
To date, Lyman Orchards has donated more than $350,000 to help in the fight against cancer.
