Some corn mazes are square and typical of a puzzle magazine, but others are designed by professionals and qualify as works of art -- at least from a bird eye's view. Of course, the curved paths that make up the picture's lines may play havoc with your innate sense of direction, but corn certainly qualifies as an interesting artistic medium. There are several new themes for 2013 at Detroit Michigan Corn Mazes.

The corn-rendering for the Best Corn Maze in 2013 is “Pure Michigan.” The maze opens on Friday, September 13th. The cost is $8 a person. Note that the location has security towers to insure you can't get too lost, a concession stand and restrooms.
