Hettmansperger corn maze to provide Halloween fun


Somerset —

Plus, the scary characters are actually quite helpful — “If you absolutely cannot find your way out, we can go in and help; the spooks out in the corn can help if needed,” she said.
The maze — spread out over eight acres — takes approximately an hour to get through, but for some, it might be two or three hours, or not even on the first try.
“Most people make it through eventually,” said Hettmansperger. “We had a group come in for the third time (the other night) and make it through for the first time.
“There are signs that help people they’ve been (to a spot) before and they know to turn around and go the other way,” she added.
The maze opened the last weekend of September and runs through the month of October. Admission is $7 for adults, $5 for children ages 12 and under, and special group rates are available. Hettmansperger noted that the maze is open on Wednesdays for church groups which may want to take their youth through the maze as an activity.
The Hettmanspergers partner with Kentucky Proud and the Farm Bureau website market to help promote their own brand of agro-tourism, which also includes the spring greenhouse and fall mums. They also work with the Y Club at Casey County High School, which helps with the maze; a portion of the profits will go to the school club, serving as a sort of fundraiser for them.
