People Are Calling The Police To Get Out of the World's Biggest Corn Maze
CBS Sacramento are reporting that people trying to complete a 63-acre corn maze in California are getting so lost that they're having to call the police to get out. The maze was awarded the title of "world's largest corn maze" by the Guinness Book of World Records back in 2007 and, according to its website, is 50% larger than the previous record holder. According to visitors, once you enter it takes roughly 3.5 to 4 hours to get back out. "There's a concern; there’s a bit of fear involved," said Deputy Daryl Snedeker from the Solano County Sheriff’s Dept. "I think they are overwhelmed. You can get a little worked up when you can’t get out of a place and everything looks the same. But some people who get turned around panic and dial 911 for help […] We don't laugh… It's not a comedy to us, and our dispatchers have a very serious job, and they take every call to 911 very serious."
