Meridian, Idaho: Land Of The Dueling Corn Mazes
Here in Meridian, we have not one, but two corn mazes just south of town to choose from for our autumn entertainment. That's just the way Idaho rolls.
The most well-known of the two (because it used to be right in the middle of town, next to the high school my kids attend, until two years ago) is Idaho's Original MAiZE; here's their design for this year:
This design is timely, but it looks like it doesn't have as much of a "maze" aspect as our favorite, the one at Linder Farms:
(Disclaimer: Our youngest just started working there, so that's one reason we like it better.) The more famous, and better advertised "MAiZE" has one problem; its new location is quite a few miles south of town, and they never say anywhere what crossroads it's near on the Meridian-Kuna Road; additionally, last year they didn't put up any signs saying "X Miles to the MAiZE" or anything. Linder Farms is a mile off the main drag, but closer to town. The smaller business takes advantage of that by putting up signs at their turn saying "Turn right for the Corn Maze"; I've got a feeling they (deservedly) snipe a lot of business from people thinking their going to the "MAiZE".
Anyway, if you're here in SW Idaho, I'd recommend taking the family and enjoying some traditional fun, at either one of the mazes. If you go to Linder Farms, make sure to look for the tall, handsome young man who works there, and tell him that Bubblehead sent you.
