Massive ‘Stranger Things’ Maze Pops Up In Corn Field, Turns It ‘Upside Down’
The release date for Stranger Things 3 has been delayed to Summer 2019, but at the very least, you can still get lost in one of its installments.
Exploration Acres in Lafayette, Indiana has assembled an intricate 20-acre corn maze inspired by the hit Netflix series, and you’ll have to give it an ‘Eleven’ out of 10 for effort.
Tim Fitzgerald, President and CEO of Exploration Acres, said that the idea for the field’s annual corn maze stemmed from his love for the show. “After binge-watching the entire Stranger Things series last year, I knew we had a unique opportunity to create an immersive environment for fans at our farm.”
The labyrinth is a reiteration of an artwork by Kyle Lambert, the official poster designer for Stranger Things. Spanning an area that’s equivalent to 15 football fields, it sports a glaring ‘Eleven’, the show’s title, the ‘Demogorgon’ chasing the boys on their bikes, and the Netflix logo.
Fitzgerald explained that his team was able to pull off the detailed look because of a “new technology” it adopted this year, which “allowed us to plant the maze design like an inkjet printer, dropping seeds into the precise design we imagined.”
The massive maze will open on 14 September through 28 October. Here’s hoping it won’t lead visitors to the terrifying ‘Upside Down’.
