Get lost in the Titanic corn maze at local pumpkin farm
RANDOM LAKE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- It's the last day of summer, and the cooler temps will bring people out to pumpkin farms all over the area.
Spieker's Pumpkin Farm in Sheboygan County has nearly 90 acres you can get lost on. First you can get lost in the 25 acres of pumpkin patch. With pumpkins so large, you'll want to bring someone along to help you get it into your wagon.
"They grew well," said Tom Spieker, owner of the family farm. "Between the pumpkins and the gourds we probably have well over 100 different types of seeds we plant every year."
The family started selling pumpkins in 1988, and just 10 years later they began getting people lost in their unique corn maze designs.
"We did the Wizard of Oz, we did an election maze, man's best friend with a dog and Brewers," said Spieker.
Every year since, the family of three comes up with something that the whole family will enjoy. This year it's the Titanic.
"He puts it on graph paper, from the graph paper it goes to the field," said Annette Spieker.
They start in the spring so that the corn is nearly 10-feet high by October.
"It's all marked off right after we plant it. As the corn starts to grow, we start cutting at a young age, and its cut about four times on average," said Tom.
The corn maze is something people of every age will enjoy.
"We try to make it difficult, but yet make it so you can get out of it," said Tom.
The only way to get out is to bring a friend with a good sense of direction. And if you see the same sign twice, go a different way.
"It's getting to the point now the next generations are coming. They say I used to come here when I was a kid and now they're bringing their kids here," said Tom.
