Pumpkin heaven is located just a few miles outside of Sunnyside at Woody’s Corn Maze, located just off 1-82 at exit 63 on Gap Road. In addition to pumpkins, the maze includes a seven-acre labyrinth, plus a corn pool, a hay pyramid and a bouncy house and, naturally, pumpkins of all shapes and sizes.
Before entering the 2.5 miles of paths through Woody’s Corn Maze, travelers are warned to obey a set of rules that are pretty firm about the proper conduct expected. Woody’s Corn Maze is open most days from 2 to 6 p.m. Weekend times are a little later for nighttime travels through the maze, according to James Woodworth, maze proprietor.
