ARCHDALE, NC, September 10, 2019— Kersey Valley Attractions has used a new GPS planting system to
produce this year’s Maize Adventure cornfield maze starting on July 8. The company has partnered with Maze
Play to create more specialized, intricate designs and a better interactive experience for maze visitors.
“The GPS planter will allow us to create more custom, picture-perfect designs than we were able to make with
just an old-school tractor,” said Kersey Valley Attractions owner Tony Wohlgemuth. “Guests making their way
through the maze will find more surprise twists and turns. And we hope that will up the level of fun they’re
getting when they spend a day with us.”
For the past 17 years, Kersey Valley has planted their entire cornfield, then used a GPS-enabled tractor to cut
the paths out of grown corn. Instead of being limited by a tractor’s turning radius, this year Maize Adventure
will use a GPS planter programmed with the designated maze design. Now, corn will be planted in rows and
when the planter reaches a selected pathway, it will omit a seed then continue planting.
The GPS planter will also allow Kersey Valley Attractions to be more eco-friendly by eliminating the need for a
tractor to plow paths from the corn. Plus, corn maze staff members will have more time to learn the maze each
year. Instead of quickly learning the paths once the corn is plowed, they can learn the maze as it grows.
“We always try to stay on the forefront of technology and innovation when it comes to our attractions,” said
Wohlgemuth. “Adding technology wherever possible makes our job easier. It allows our staff to focus more on
the fun stuff and heightens our guests’ experiences.”
This year’s design includes many North Carolina-related designs, including a lighthouse, the letters ‘NC’, and
an outline of the state. Maize Adventure cornfield maze opens September 21.
