Do you guys feel that chill in the air out there? That means it’s almost corn maze season.

The Ozark Corn Maze opened for the first time in 2010 at a five-and-a-half acre farm north of Fayetteville in Cave Springs, and the attraction will return for a second year beginning Friday, Sept. 16.

It’s basically what it sounds like. A cornfield, cut into a maze that you can pay an admission fee to enter and then walk around in.

The design for the 2011 version of the maze features a 1960s-era-Razorback-logo. A second maze has also been added this year, a “haunted” version will be open nights in October.

Other activities available at the farm include an animal petting zoo, a corn-launcher, a concession stand, and a “cow-train” for rides around the grounds.

The maze will be open to the public from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.Friday nights, from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday, and from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday. The 2011 season runs through Nov. 13.

Admission for both mazes and the petting zoo is $10 for adults, or $7 for groups of 10 or more. Other activites, including the corn-launcher cost extra. For more info, visit ozarkcornmaze.com.
