Pitt Meadows corn maze proves ear-resistible
Latest Pitt Meadows puzzle features theme celebrating 100 years of the PNE
Just don't expect maze manager Brad Hopcott to know how many stalks that equals.
"Too many to count," says Hopcott on a sweltering day this week.
To get things just perfect, the Hopcotts enlist the services of an American who specializes in carving out these giant puzzles based on client sketches, using GPS, a roto tiller and a tractor.
Note the word "average."
Hopcott's brother, Travis, remembers a woman who must have set the unofficial slowest time ever to complete the challenge.
"It took her over four hours."
Personally, I want to take on the maze at night, armed with glowsticks and flashlights, which is totally an option, too. The glowsticks aside, that's not corny at all.
