Lose yourself in this extreme corn maze on the North Shore.
The Cajun Country Corn Maze unveils nearly 8 acres of spellbinding bends and pathways at the annual fall attraction in Pine Grove, La., near Amite.
We captured mesmerizing drone footage of this year’s design. This year, the maze’s central design features a giant pirate shape, a nod to “Pirates of the Caribbean” explains founder Donald Courville.
Courville says each year the family tries to incorporate part of Louisiana history into the maze design.
“We’re right here at the Caribbean, so it’s just part of Louisiana’s history,” Courville said.
Visitors can use corn maze passports filled with trivia games for clues to escape the maze.
Courville says a journey through the 7.5-acre puzzle maze can take between one to two hours to complete.
Families can also plan a full day with other activities including pig races, an animal petting area, a playground area and duck races.
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.
The Courville family planted South Louisiana’s first corn maze in 2000 and crafts a new design every year.
The first corn maze was in a shape of a giant crawfish with the phrase, “let the good times roll.”
The Cajun Country Corn Maze opens every weekend until Nov. 25.
Hours during October are Fridays from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m., Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
