Huck's Corn Maze is a five-acre maze cut in the shape of Popeye. Maps are available at the gate, which is good because there are plenty of dead ends and paths that will have people retracing their steps if they don't choose well.
Huck's offers numerous other activities. You can build your own scarecrow, pick your own pumpkin, jump in bouncy houses, plunge down the 20-foot inflatable slide or take a hayride. There is also a water balloon slingshot, beanbag toss and corn box.
On the grounds, you'll also find a free photo spot with an antique Johnny Popper John Deere tractor and a hay wagon. Parker encourages people to bring their camera and take as many photos as they like.
Food services include hamburgers, hot dogs, nachos, funnel cakes, fried Snickers, and sodas.
The maze has already opened for the season and runs from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday through Thursday, 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday, and 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday. For nighttime maze-going, bring a flashlight or rent one from Huck's. A special trick-or-treat maze night is Oct. 28.
50% of the proceeds go to the Lowell police and fire departments to help buy equipment.
