Getting Lost In The Corn Maze At Meadows Maze

Meadows Maze

With 6.3KM of trails, the corn maze at Meadows Maze is one of the largest corn mazes in the world. People of all ages have been going there every year to test their navigational and map reading skills. More that just a maze, other attractions include a Petting Zoo, Bee Observatory, Lions “Goat” Bridge, hay wagon rides, full concession and Cranberry Meadows Country store.You can also take a slide down Meadows Mountain or take a dusty ride through the maze on the Barrel Train or Corny’s Maze Train.

Hopcott Farms, the maze operator, creates a new maze in the corn field every year. The 2010 maze celebrates 100 years of fun at the PNE. When you look at the maze from the sky (or Google Maps), it looks soemthing like this.

However, from the ground, it looks like a giant corn field with a bunch of endless trails going off in every direction. The object is to go into the maze, locate a bunch of checkpoints and then find your way out. If you try doing it without reading the map, you’ll be stuck in there for hours, wondering aimlessly until you go crazy and get eaten by the crows.

I had planned to hit the maze yesterday but then discovered that yesterday was a holiday (BC Day). I don’t like going to public attractions on weekends or holidays because there’s normally too many people and I hate waiting in line. So, I decided to go today, which is not holiday and we had the entire maze pretty much all to ourselves. You got to love the Dot Com Lifestyle!

Meadows Maze is located at 13672 Reichenbach Road in Pitt Meadows, BC. If you have a plane and you want to see the maze from the air, the latitude is 49.250573 and the longitude is 122.710530. You can punch this into Google Maps but the satellite view is showing the maze from 2008.

  1. That looks like a lot of fun John! Corn mazes are always interesting, especially haunted ones!

    1. Big mazes can get scary for children but they are fun too!

    2. PPC Ian says:

      Agreed! That looks like a ton of fun!

  2. d3so says:

    lol, what an adventure. I haven’t been to a corn maze yet but I hope to!

    1. Bidet says:

      Me either, it looks like so much fun though. I wonder if they have races towards the end of it.

  3. “So, I decided to go today, which is not holiday and we had the entire maze pretty much all to ourselves. You got to love the Dot Com Lifestyle!”

    Yeah the internet lifestyle. Pretty impressive John! You truly are enjoying and making the most of this style. And I guess Sally is very lucky!

    1. O and why is Sally wearing those goggles in the second picture?

      1. John Chow says:

        To prevent dusk from getting into the eyes!

          hahah i didn’t notice, but i went up again to check, and yes, saw those bright orange goggles! was it really so dusty, John?

  4. Just to rephrase John’s “Dot Com Lifestyle” from the sky point of view it looks like “Dot Corn Lifestyle”
    It’s the same as “The Corn Maze” seems like “The Com Maze”
    It’s nice place to be for sure.
    Are you gonna be at the Sand Sculpture Contest this year, John?

  5. This is just AMAZING 🙂
    Thanks for pointing out this wonderful attraction. It is fascinating to see what creativity can do with farmland. Just an other How to Make Money idea.

    Dude, I didn’t know there was a corn maze in Pitt Meadows.

    I wonder if it would work to go there and use the iPhone GPS combined with Google Satellite View to cheat. 🙂

  7. 11.1 v LiPo says:

    Oh LOL. Google maps shows an old version. That sucks… there goes my idea. 🙂

    1. John Chow says:

      I had the same idea when we were inside the maze. 😀 Google maps was no help at all!

      1. That bridge was a great help I think. Without it you could have been stuck for longer than you’d like.

        Unless I missed it you didn’t say how long you were in the maze.

        1. John Chow says:

          The first maze took over an hour. The second took about 45 minutes.

  8. That is surely one amazing maze 😉 SY

  9. Sally says:

    Hey John,

    Cool video, looked like a lot of fun even with the rain, I liked your son bouncing up and down trying to see over the corn, showing initiative ha ha.

    Looks like you all had a fab day out, Sally 🙂

    1. John Chow says:

      He’s not my son. He’s the son of a friend who came with us. That other girl is his sister.

  10. Paul avery says:

    Do they have a search and rescue?

    Ha ha. Kids must love it.

    1. John Chow says:

      They used to make people carry 10 foot tall flags to find lost people. Now they say “call us on your cell phone if you get lost.” Doesn’t help people with no cell phones, however.

      1. I kind of find it hard to believe that you can get cell reception in the middle of a ginormous cornfield…

        1. John Chow says:

          I was about to get Google maps and Internet. Don’t see why I couldn’t make a cell call.

  11. I would like to participate in that race if ever I could go there.

  12. I love corn mazes! We visited one in PA years ago, but now they are so popular there is one 3 miles from my house. It is great fun and doing it in the dark is even better!

  13. That thing has to be in serious competition for biggest corn maze in the world, if it hasn’t won already. Very cool.
    I have to say though, I usually think of corn mazes as a Halloween time kind of thing. I think a lot of people do haunted corn mazes 🙂

  14. Looks like a great time John

  15. Bidet says:

    Wow that maze looks crazy, and a lot of fun too. It must be scary getting lost.

  16. Dan Lew says:

    Looks like you guys have really enjoyed yourselves!

  17. Krystle says:

    This is amazing, and that is one heck of an aerial view! Wow. The people behind the creation of that maze are definitely talented. I’ve personally never seen anything like that.

    With that in mind, I wonder if crop circles are man-made as well? It’s a topic that interests me very much. Any ideas? 🙂

  18. Boy love the victory sign of Sally.

  19. Boy that one is really interesting but wanted to see videos of those photos as well.

    That’s some tall corn towering over your daughter in that first picture. Looks like fun!
