Great news from Mike Boudreau, whose family owns and operates the largest maze in New England – The Great Vermont Corn Maze, right next door in Danville:
“We are writing to spread the word that to celebrate our 20th year of “cornfusion” we will be offering a discount of $5 off a regular adult admission to every adult that has a library card in the month of August (bringing the adult admission price from $15 to $10).
The Great Vermont Corn Maze is not your typical small maze with just some trails in a cornfield. Instead it is a mental and physical challenge – covering 24 acres and typically taking the average healthy adult couple 2+ hours to solve.” For more information about the The Great Vermont Corn Maze, check their website.
