Autumnal adventurers: today’s the day to start charting your course through the cobs.
The Walla Walla Corn Maze officially opens this evening at 6 p.m. at 853 Five Mile Road.
Those planning to sojourn through the stalks can do so Thursday through Sunday throughout the season, which ends after Halloween. The maze, a creation and operation of the Filan farming family, is open 6-10 p.m. Thursday; 6-11 p.m. Friday; 2-11 p.m. Saturday; and 4-9 p.m. Sunday. For the time being, the maze is in its non-scary version. It will be “haunted” Oct. 25-31. The last admittance is a half-hour before closing.
A few tips: Guests are asked to bring their own flashlights. The maze and area also has poor telephone service, and there’s no public phone, according to the Walla Walla Corn Maze website. The operation does, however, have a concession stand with hot dogs and a portable restroom onsite.
The cost to participate is $6 for those 12 and older; $4 for those 4-11 (those in this category must be accompanied by someone 16 or older); and free for those 3 and younger (must have a parent or guardian).
To get to the maze, follow the signs east on Isaacs Avenue. Take Five Mile Road, and the property is one mile from there, the last house on the left. For more details, visit wallawallacornmaze.com or call 525-4798.
