Corn fields aren’t exactly the most exciting thing in life. If you’ve ever driven through rural Illinois -- you know the scene. But at Richardson Adventure Farm in Spring Grove, Ill., there’s been a slight change in plan.
The farm prides itself as the “World’s Largest Corn Maze,” and now it’s easily the world’s most epic.
Two hockey players, two logos, the Chicago skyline, ‘2015 Champions’ and a hockey puck? Yep. All cut out of five corn mazes into one gigantic 33- acre showstopper celebrating the 2015 Stanley Cup Champions.
In an interview with ABC 7 Chicago, the owner of the farm, George Richardson, explains how it was a lot more spontaneous than planned, making it even more impressive.
"So we called our maze designer out in Idaho and asked if he had time to create a new design," said Richardson. "Then we got permission from the Blackhawks to use their logo. The result is a bold design with the Blackhawks logo in the center and the Chicago skyline in the background, flanked by two hockey players and the word "Champions."'

The maze designer cut 11 miles of trails in the corn field using a GPS system for guidance. How cool, right? Here's a map of the full maze if you ever go up to Spring Grove to check it out in person (Although, you might need to jump on something with wings for an aerial view.)
The farm is open from Wednesdays - Sundays beginning Aug. 29 through Nov. 1. Try not to get lost!
But then again, go for it.
