Corn "Maize" Offers Texas-Sized Adventure in Montgomery

By  | 

If you are looking for a Texas-sized adventure for the whole family it might be worth your time to take a drive to Montgomery where there's a something happening with the maize... That is m-a-i-z-e.

At first glance this looks like a typical cornfield just off of Highway 105 and Poole's Road in Montgomery.

But what's on the inside will really surprise you.

Carey Poole of P-6 Farms tells us it's a new approach during this difficult drought.

They've turned an eight acre cornfield into a giant maze for the fall.

"When you plant it we cross plant it and we plant, we come up with our design and this company it's all computer generated and when they cut out the pattern it was a day," said Carey Poole.

With corn this tall you can spend lots of time getting lost but to give you a true perspective of how massive this maze is you really have to see it from the air.

News 3 got a bird's eye tour from 2,000 feet up at the maze which says Montgomery... Birth of Texas Flag.

Anderson Mayor Gail Sowell also went along on the ride.

"'It is pretty massive and it's pretty cool that they have Montgomery Birthplace of the Texas Flag because that's where the Texas flag came from and Montgomery's a very historical town so that's exciting," said Sowell.

For Maddie Poole and her younger brother Tanner, it's the best backyard ever.

But they still have to do chores.

"We've had to help set up we've had to run around through the maze to get used to it let's see helping the store all that," said Maddie Poole, an 11-year-old.

As for just how a Utah-based company made this corny creation, the Poole's won't say.

"Could be aliens... you never know," said Carey Poole.

And for a small fee you too can get lost in this maize. It's $10 for adults 12 and up, and $8 for kids and seniors.

It will be open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday until November 27th with other activities including a pumpkin patch and hayride.
