MAiZE maze in Portsmouth


With 8 acres of corn planted and their new mind-boggling design now created, the Escobar family is bringing the “MAiZE craze” back to Rhode Island. The popular Portsmouth labyrinth, the largest maze in Rhode Island, that drew thousands of visitors last fall, will once again get curious maze-goers lost when it opens to the public on August 31. Though the correct pathways can be walked in under 30 minutes, most directionally-challenged visitors will require about one hour to travel through more than two miles of twists and turns, 2 bridges and 85 decision points.

WHERE: Escobar Farm, 255 Middle Road, Portsmouth
WHEN: Opens Friday, Aug. 31 at 4 p.m.; 10 a.m. Saturdays and 11 a.m Sundays; closes at dusk
