WHITEHOUSE, OH (WTOL) - It's an a-maze-ing sight every year: the Wheeler Farms Corn Maze in Whitehouse.

Past mazes have featured University of Toledo and Bowling Green State University football themes, a military tribute and even a Sarah Palin portrait.

This year it's all about dinosaurs, cashing in on the Jurassic Park craze.

"It's about making families happy. All of us are moving so fast. It's time you can spend with your family for your greatest memories. We're going to create memories at the corn maze" says Duke Wheeler.

There are four mazes totaling 6.9 miles.

The shortest is .7 mile ,with the longest being 3.5 miles.

It was designed by an artist who put the dinosaur outline in a computer on how to cut the maze.

"Early July, he came with a John Deere tractor and tiller, drove around for 15 hours, cut down the corn and went to the next farm and it's perfect" said Wheeler, who wants you to know something else about the dinosaur maze.

People do get lost, but are guaranteed to be found.

"It is dark at 10:00 at night. People get lost and we got people to come get them. The corn cops," said Wheeler.

The maze opens Saturday and runs through October 28th. To find out about the hours of operation and admission prices go to the Wheeler Farms Facebook page.
