Rivers of the Cherokee
Our 2015 Corn Maze
That’s Sequoyah on the left and Nancy Ward on the right!
Sequoyah was the inventor of the written Cherokee language and Nancy Ward’s grave site is right here in Polk County along the lower Ocoee River. Come learn about the history of the Cherokee Indians as you travel the River Maze! We will continue with our own unique game…Mystery at the River Maze. This year our mystery is:
“Sequoyah’s Secret Message”
We have created a scavenger hunt through our maze to help us find what Sequoyah is trying to tell us. You can use a pre-printed card or your smartphone to play this game. Click here for Smart Checkpoints info
Passports to aMAZEing Learning
We are including educational signs about the rivers in this 3 state area and the history of the Cherokee people at the passport posts in the maze. Speaking of passport posts, in the past we have had 10 spots in our maze where you see numbered posts. We will still have that! Guests carry a trivia passport on a topic of their choice and a correct answer gives a clue about which way to turn. But this year, you can play on your smartphone or create your own trivia card.

Even More aMAZEing
Have you heard of The Three Sisters? We will have a soybean maze with beans, corn and squash (the pumpkin is a member of this family) carved in it. The Cherokees planted these together in one mound. This food sustained them throughout the winter. Learn about these three staples as you travel this maze. Don’t forget to try our “No Left Turn” Maze and the “Color Maze”, “Tag with Spookley and Friends” and more…
