Labyrinths cut out in large maize fields have become a new tourist attraction, mainly for families with children, in the Czech Republic.
They were opened by the Fit-Jump company, that now operates 25 maize mazes in the country. The aim of the project is to make children move. Besides, this is an interesting opportunity for farmers to use maize fields before the harvest.
The maze operators address families with children, schools, and kindergartens as well as companies that may use the maize labyrinths during team building events.
“Out of the original 30 mazes, we have 25 left and this week we will close another in the South Moravia Region,” firm executive Radek Skacel said.
The most popular maize labyrinths are in Hradec Králové, Opava, and Pisek. Those in big cities, such as Brno and mainly the capital of Prague, paradoxically attract fewer people.
