Corn maze 玉米迷宮

The 2006 Stocker Farms corn maze in Snohomish, Washington in the US. 2006年美國華盛頓州斯諾荷米遜鎮上,史塔克農場的玉米迷宮.


It's a bird! It's a plane! Nope, it's a maze — a maze shaped like an airplane.

Mazes are fun places through which people must find their way. There are usually many turns and dead ends that make it hard to get from one end of the maze to another. In fact, it is often the goal of the maze to get people lost before they are finally able to find their way out.

For the past few years, each September, a place called Stocker Farms in the US state of Washington has built a maze of corn. Each year the farm builds the maze in a different shape. Then they open it for a month and people pay money to see this great big maze and try to find their way through it.

This year, the farm teamed up with the Boeing airplane company to make their maze in the shape of a Boeing 787 Dreamliner airplane. If you look carefully, you can even see the airplane’s name written into the maze!
