It’s truly a-maze-ing.
The cornfield maze at the National Forest Adventure Farm in Burton-Upon-Trent, U.K., recreates the iconic photo of Aldrin on the lunar surface captured by Apollo 11 Mission Commander Neil Armstrong. It also features a huge depiction of the Saturn V rocket that carried NASA astronauts Aldrin, Armstrong and Michael Collins on their historic mission.
Drone footage shows the giant maze, which stretches across a 10-acre cornfield. SWNS reports that the maze features three miles of paths, bridges and viewing towers.
The seeds for the maze were sown in May. “After months of planning we’re really excited to reveal the design especially as our 16th annual maze will celebrate the achievement of those pioneering astronauts 50 years ago,” National Forest Adventure Farm Owner Tom Robinson told SWNS.
Only 12 men, all Americans, have walked on the Moon.
The Apollo 11 maze will open on July 13. By mid-August, it is expected to reach a height of 8 feet.
As part of its Apollo 11 50th anniversary celebration, the National Forest Adventure Farm also sent a stuffed animal on a balloon that traveled up 22 miles into Earth’s stratosphere. When the balloon burst, the toy cow parachuted safely back to Earth.
