Could You Escape This Enormous ‘Stranger Things’ Corn Maze?

With the newest season of everyone’s favourite Netflix series, Stranger Things not dropping until late next year, fans are going to great lengths to make the wait a little less miserable.

Some have found comfort in a new show to binge and bide the time, others are re-watching the first two seasons, and one group of super-fans straight-up constructed an enormous corn maze to celebrate the series.

The corn maze in Lafayette, Indiana was created by Exploration Acres, Northwest Indiana’s largest corn maze and it’s bloody huge. It’s equivalent to around 15 football fields and has more than 16km of paths to explore.

CEO of Exploration Acres Tim Fitzgerald got his inspo for this mega maze after binging the entire series last year. “I knew we had a unique opportunity to create an immersive environment for fans at our farm. It’s the perfect setting, we are in a rural Indiana location with woods and a pumpkin patch,” Fitzgerald told Lonely Planet News.
