The Lethbridge Corn Maze is planning to officially open July 30, and goat snuggling will continue until some time in August – according to Theo Slingerland, owner of the Lethbridge Corn Maze.

But, that’s not all the local attraction has to offer this season. The Lethbridge Corn Maze has just announced things will be done a little bit differently, including a floral surprise at the maze this year.

“We’re planning to be open July 30 and we’re open until the end of October,” says Slingerland. “We have a new maze, of course, this year.”

All in all, Slingerland says, the Lethbridge Corn Maze is open for business.

“We don’t have to make appointments anymore,” says Slingerland. “Last year we had a very busy year. We had to turn people away.”

“I think we’re going to go back to normal.”

“We don’t expect to be as busy, but still busy, and of course it will be easier to handle crowds now,” Slingerland noted.

However, that’s not all that’s been happening at the Lethbridge Corn Maze.

Since May 13, the corn maze has offered one-hour goat snuggle sessions of up to five people.

“The goat snuggling will be open until some time in August. We’re not sure exactly how long,” says Slingerland. “The petting zoo is open.”

“Our yard is open, which includes a hedge maze, rat rollers and a few other things.”

One of those other things at the maze this year is the addition of a sunflower maze. In past years, the corn maze has taken up the full 10 acres of the maze. But, this year, the corn maze is only taking up nine acres to accommodate a one-acre sunflower maze.

“This year we also have a smaller sunflower maze,” says Slingerland. “We have an acre of sunflowers and we cut some paths in there.”

“We hope they’re going to start blooming next week,” says Slingerland. “The end of July people can come (and) take pictures in there, get lost in there.”

It’s something new, added Slingerland. For more information about booking a hayride or detailed hours of operation visit lethbridgecornmaze.com.
