GREAT GODFREY MAZE IS OUT OF THIS WORLD
(Godfrey, IL – Aug. 2, 2012) - Crop circles have been spotted in the “Out of this World” seven-acre corn maze in Godfrey’s Glazebrook Park. You don’t have to be an astronaut to enjoy the adventure this fall as the Great Godfrey Maze takes you deep into the cosmos.
Thrill seekers will get to blast off on a space adventure beginning Friday, Aug. 31 as the Great Godfrey Maze opens for its 13th season in Glazebrook Park, located at 1401 Stamper Lane in Godfrey. The theme for this year’s maze is “We’re out of this world.” A space shuttle, a planet and an alien are cut into the maze to give visitors an out of this world experience.
Lift off for the 2012 maze will begin at 6 p.m. with a ribbon cutting ceremony and then the maze will be open for the first time this year to travelers wishing to get a little lost. The movie, E.T. the Extra Terrestrial, will be shown on the giant inflatable outdoor screen as the sun sets. Regular admission fees apply for the maze. Concessions will be available on the grounds.
Mark your calendar for special events at the maze where you can get lost in space and enjoy some corny fun.
