WHITEHOUSE, Ohio — Wheeler Farms is keeping the corn maze tradition alive.
The popular fall staple has returned this year. The maze opened for the season on Sept. 19.
Last year, weather caused a shortened season for the maze.
The theme this year is "Hometown Heroes" and honors frontline workers during the pandemic with intricate images of a teacher, a medical worker and a delivery driver accented by a mail truck.
The maze spans 16 acres of land in Whitehouse with 3 different paths. There are 6.2 miles of pathways this year and guests can tackle any one they wish - or, if they prefer a challenge, all three.
Wheeler Farms offered discounted admission during opening weekend for frontline workers.
"We like to thank them for everything they've done," said Betsy Dieball, a five-year employee of Wheeler Farms.
The corn maze is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday with the season ending on Saturday, Oct. 31.
Friday: 5 p.m.-10 p.m.
Saturday: 12 p.m.-10 p.m.
Sunday: 12 p.m.-6 p.m.
(All dates and times are weather permitting.)
Adults (10+): $12
Children (4-9): $10 with adult
65 & Over: $10
Under 4: Free with adult admission
Ticket sales end one hour before close.
Guests are asked to bring flashlights after sundown and invited to enjoy on-site campfires for free if they are unable to participate in the corn maze. COVID-19 protocols are in place and social distancing should be practiced.
The Wheeler Farms corn maze is located at 11455 Obee Road in Whitehouse, next to the Butterfly House.
