A new design in the Prairie Gardens corn maze is generating some anxious explorers.
 
The Minotaur Maze and Mindbender Maze are both now open for kids to test their navigation skills.
 
Seven acres of Prairie Gardens has been transformed into the thrilling maze, but teenagers and adults will still have to wait until the fall to get in on the fun.
 
"Slowly over time the farm has evolved and we plant what people are asking for," said Tam Anderson, director of fun at Prairie Gardens. "People said how about sweet corn and then we decided to do a maze."
 
A multi-purpose Mega Maze is expected to be opening in September and features four mazes in one field.
 
"[The corn] feeds the cows at the end of the season so nothing is wasted," added farmer Tam.
 
The expected opening date is September 20.
