Cherry Crest Adventure Farm
In the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch country lays the Cherry Crest Adventure Farm. This New Jersey farming family has ratcheted up the fun meter, calling their venture an "agri-tainment" farm on their Web site. They lay claim to the "most dynamic and interactive" corn maze in the world. Judging from the aerial views of the mazes from years past, that description seems right on target. Some of the mazes have familiar themes, but the Cherry Crest mazes are a little more complex in their design. The reason why is because a former Broadway producer and co-owner of the American Maze Company heads up the design and construction. This 2.5-mile (4-kilometer), hour-long maze is filled with clues, random facts placed at stations, music and tunnel slides. There are also bird's-eye-view bridge lookouts so people can watch their family and friends get lost in the five-acre maze.
