Can you solve the maze? Take a trip to the North Shore to find out.

The Cajun Country Corn Maze unveils 7.5 acres of twisting pathways at the annual fall attraction in Pine Grove, La., near Amite. The maze opens for the 19th season, ready for families to solve the puzzle.

Founder Donald Courville said the corn maze is a great way for families to combine fun and education.

“Educating kids to agriculture…helping them understand where their food comes from is important to all farmers. With the corn maze we get a chance to add fun to education and when you can do that, it sticks,” Courville said.

Courville says each year the family tries to incorporate part of Louisiana history into the maze design. This year, the maze’s central design features a giant pirate shape, a nod to “Pirates of the Caribbean.” We also captured more mesmerizing drone footage of this year’s design.

“We’re right here at the Caribbean, so it’s just part of Louisiana’s history,” Courville said.

A journey through the 7.5-acre puzzle maze can take between one to two hours to complete. Visitors can use corn maze passports filled with trivia games for clues to escape the maze.

Families can also plan a full day with other activities including pig races, an animal petting area, a playground area and duck races. Guests can meet farm animals like goats, cows and bunnies. Other popular attractions include the bucking cow ride and hay rides.

The farm turns into a haunted playground on Friday and Saturday nights in October. Haunted activities include a haunted trail full of spooks and scares, a haunted pellet maze and a zombie shoot. Night time guests can also explore the pumpkin walk light fixture.

The Cajun Country Corn Maze opens every weekend until Nov. 25.

Courville reminds families heading to the corn maze to bring comfortable shoes, dress for the weather and bring sunscreen.
