The Amazing Maize Maze in Queens

So after traveling East on the BQE and LIE, we ended up in Floral Park, Queens, to attend the Amazing Maize Maze at the Queens County Farm Museum. We had to sign up and get a wristband to enter the 3-acre corn maze, where we were greeted by a volunteer among the tall stalks. He described to us rules of the scavenger hunt—to look for clues and puzzle pieces in order to complete the maze. We were also instructed to carry tall flag poles for them to spot us with in case we got lost, and to use code words when asking for clues on how to find our way out.

It was a very scenic adventure!
