BUFORD, Ga. (Aug. 2014) –The Buford Corn Maze is set to begin its 2014 season Saturday, Aug. 30 at the five-acre site on Friendship Road in Buford.
The maze, which attracts approximately 20,000 visitors each year, is open through Nov. 16 with activities on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays through September then expanding to Mondays and Wednesdays in October.
“We are starting our sixth season and have really enjoyed providing fun, family-friendly entertainment,” said Rodney Miller, founder of the Buford Corn Maze in 2009, and now operates it with his wife Kendra and partners Jerome and Tina Beggs. “Most families spend a half day with us each visit, exploring all the activities we have to offer.”
There is more to do at the Buford Corn Maze than just finding your way through the five-acre maze. The attraction features Atlanta’s longest hayride. The mile long trail wind around the maze and through the forested area on the property then back through the Haunted Forest.
There is also a corn box play area, face painting, pony rides, a bounce house and farm animals to pet. And in late September, October and November, the Buford Corn Maze’s Haunted Forest comes to life for Halloween. Live music is presented on some Fridays and Saturdays, and visitors also get a chance to sing on Sundays with karaoke.
“We see a lot of the same families and groups coming back year after year, and we are attracting new ones as well. We’re really excited about the coming season,” Beggs said.
