Get Lost in a Corn Maze in Queens

Usually when people say they got lost in Queens, I wish them luck and say nice knowing you, but now there’s a spot I wouldn’t mind getting lost in. Every Saturday and Sunday, put yourself up to the challenge with this 3-acre corn maze at the Queen’s County Farm Museum.  Apparently there are farms in the city, not counting all the ones on the rooftops of Bushwick.

For 8 bucks, you get to wander around the maze, following a series of clues and solving puzzles as you go. For the spatially challenged I recommend tackling this thing during the day, but for the more advanced navigators, go at night for an added spooky factor. While you’re there, pick your own giant pumpkins and ride the train home with your produce trophy. As for the maze, it’s no Shining, but it certainly comes in handy when you’re trying to break it off with your girlfriend.
