Getting Lost In A Corn Maze

A corn maze is back this fall out east of Broken Arrow.

News on 6 reporter Emory Bryan says Jack Schlekeway would have liked to have had a better corn crop this year, but he's not really worried about yield. He's more interested in how tall his crop is. You can't have a maze in a cornfield waist high. Thankfully, he got enough rain to grow taller corn on most of his 10 acres.

It's a crop circle design, with two mazes that intersect. It's complicated enough that even the guy who designed says he's been lost in there. Rick Anderson: "I was out there checking the trails and I got so lost I made a trail in the back to get out."

When a person is in the middle of a cornfield - it's hard to judge whether it's best to go this way or that. It's easy to get lost out here; it's almost impossible to see your way around.

A lot of people find the attraction of this place is not just being lost, they want to be scared too. That's why there's a haunted path through the maze.

The busiest time for the maze is the two weeks before Halloween. Jack Schlekeway: “there's a lot of people that come out to try and solve the maze itself. The city folks seem to enjoy it the most.”

But it's more than just a maze with a way in and way out. There's a hay hop, and a fire pit for cookouts - enough that Schlekeway says people sometimes come out and spend hours - even if they're not lost in the corn.
