The Corn Maze on the Farm at the American West Heritage Center is open from late September through the end of October every year // (c) 2013 American West Heritage Center If you are stuck in the middle of a corn maze of corn during the fall months with seemingly no way out, you just might be in Wellsville, Utah. This small town – population 3,500 – is the home to American West Heritage Center, which stages a variety of fall activities.

Fall Harvest Festival
Set for Oct. 17 ^& 18, the Fall Harvest Festival encourages guests to learn all about life in the American West and features such activities as cider pressing, candle making, steam engine threshing and corn shelling–that’s taking the corn off the cob for corn novices.

Corn Maze on the Farm
The center is open year-round, however, and guests who miss the Fall Harvest Festival can still try their luck navigating the 7-acre corn maze. Open from late September through the end of October, visitors make their way to the center of the maze and then try to find the secret exit. Other activities include a hay jump, giant slide and tomahawk throwing, as well as pony and train rides for the younger viagra cialis levitra online set.

Haunted Hollow
In October, naturally Halloween events are also available. Every Friday and Saturday in October, the center transforms itself into Haunted Hollow, a haunted place where spooky sightings have included Butch Cassidy’s Hole in the Wall Gang, the Hunchback of Notre Dame, the Hound of Baskerville, and a variety of terrifying mummies. Beware, this isn’t an activity for the tiniest of tots, and there’s a minimum age limit of 8 years and older.

Why Wellsville?
Wellsville is on the way to Yellowstone National Park–home of 500 geysers, including Old Faithful. While you can’t be sure when the geysers will do their stuff, one thing is certain. There won’t be as many visitors to Wellsville as there are during the peak summer season.
