The largest annually planted corn maze in Indiana USA, Exploration Acres have created something rather magical. Inspired by Netflix’s cult hit-series, Stranger Things, the agri-team have created a 20 acre super-maze that was unveiled in Lafayette, Indiana. Not only is the series set in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana but the show also features the ‘Upside Down’ – a dark and terrifying maze in itself, making this piece rather perfect in terms of placement and reference. But none of that really influenced the work as it was not commissioned by Netflix.
“After binge-watching the entire Stranger Things series last year, I knew we had a unique opportunity to create an immersive environment for fans at our farm,” – Tim Fitzgerald, president and CEO of Exploration Acres
Each year Exploration Acres chooses a theme for their crop and this year the team just wanted to celebrate one of their favourite shows. The company uses GPS equipment to plant their field so specifically, allowing them to plant the maze like an ‘inkjet printer’, dropping seeds into a precise design.
The Stranger Things maze is open from Sept. 14 through to Oct. 28 – check out the impressive masterpiece below and be sure to check out the Exploration Acres Facebook fan page for more on their incredible crop designs.
