2013 Corn Maze Opens September 21, and Runs Every
Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, Through October 27
Waterloo, IN (August 23, 2013) – With Fall just around the corner, Amazing Acres Farms, LLC, operators of the Amazing Fall Fun Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch™ today announced that the popular attraction for families and kids of all ages will feature two corn mazes, one with a layout in the likeness of Andrew Luck, NFL franchise quarterback of the Indianapolis Colts.
“This year, Amazing Fall Fun would like to show our support of the Indianapolis Colts and new Quarterback Andrew Luck,” said Larry Smith, founder and operator of Amazing Fall Fun, and owner of Amazing Acres Farms. “The maze will comprise an image of Andrew Luck and the Colts’ logo. There will also be an Andrew Luck trivia game to play throughout the maze.”
Now in its third year of operation, the Amazing Fall Fun Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch is a regional attraction drawing thousands of visitors from the tri-state area. Amazing Acres Farms is located just five minutes East of Waterloo (East on US 6, exit 334, off I-69) at 3150 County Road 43, Waterloo Indiana, 46793. Events will open on Saturday, September 21, and will operate every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, through Sunday, October 27.
“We’ve designed two Corn Mazes and Amazing Fall Fun events for all ages,” said Smith. “We are particularly excited about our biggest Maze ever – a 12-acre maze that, from the air, looks like Quarterback Andrew Luck of the Colts poised and ready to make a winning pass across a field of 10-foot high corn.” He adds, “The Andrew Luck Maze is going to be fun and challenging. Some people may get lost for a while navigating dozens of turns and dead-ends in this year’s maze.”
“We also have a five-acre acre “Halloween Trail” Maze, which was a hit last year. This corn maze features surprises and special effects for nighttime fun,” said Smith. “We’re telling everyone to bring a flashlight after dark.” The Halloween Trail Maze opens on Friday, October 4, and will be open through October 27.
In addition to the two Mazes, the Amazing Fall Fun attraction includes numerous Fall fun activities, including a Pumpkin Patch, Hayrides, a Straw Mountain, a Corn Box (16-foot by 16-foot box filled with corn), a fun feature especially designed for kids, a Tractor Tire Mountain, a Straw Maze made with more than 120 bales of straw, Cornhole games, and many other family fun activities.

Last Friday, the Colts held their final Fan Fest of the summer at the Three Rivers Festival in Ft. Wayne. A football bounce house, Colts In Motion traveling museum, inflatable football players Tiny and Crusher, carnival rides, Play 60 Zone, “Junk Food Alley,” The Hunter Smith Band and many Colts fans were all in attendance.
With fans arriving hours before the 4 p.m. event start time, the Wilson family appointed themselves “Colts Line Ambassadors” while waiting for the Colts players and cheerleaders to arrive. They instructed to other fans, with help from the Colts staff, where the line started and which way the line would wind and weave.
Rose Wilson, along with her three adult children, Nicole, Kayle and Jason, are all looking forward to watching the Colts play and win this season. They waited patiently for almost four hours to get posters and purses autographed by Colts players Anthony Castonzo and Donald Thomas.
Castonzo and Thomas arrived in Ft. Wayne via bright red helicopter; this time bringing along a plus one. Dominique, Castonzo’s girlfriend, enjoyed her first helicopter ride, especially with her two tour guides. “Anthony and Donald were pointing down the whole time, saying ‘Look here’s where I work!’ and ‘That’s my house!’”
One fan at the Colts Fan Fest had a unique connection to the Colts organization. Jody Trent used to stand on the sidelines in 2004 as a Colts Cheerleader. “It was one of the most fun years of my life,” she explained.
Jody heard about the event on the radio that morning and brought her three children, including her 10-month-old little cheerleader, to the family-friendly event. Her sons, 4 and 6 years old, are not into football yet, but they definitely were champs at the Colts Play 60 Zone running drills and throwing passes.
The National Guard, one of the Colts Fan Fest sponsors, had quite the setup Friday. A cobranded Hummer, Chevy truck and booth are where Specialist Kingsley and his four coworkers hung out to beat the heat and talk to Colts fans.
Specialist Kingsley, 20, explained that the Colts are much more than a football team to him. “They support us. Even when we are deployed we can still watch the Colts games, and the Colts organization makes that happen.” Kingsley had the honor of holding the American flag on the field at Lucas Oil Stadium during the Military Appreciation game last year.
Although the Colts summer promotions tour is over, fans can look forward to “Blue Fridays” during the season. “Blue Fridays” will include Colts Cheerleaders, the Colts In Motion traveling museum and giveaways. The first one is Thursday, September 5 at a Meijer location in the Indianapolis area before the Colts first regular season home game versus the Oakland Raiders.

Our second Colts Fan Fest last Thursday in Louisville was crazy to say the least. A tire problem, a long delay and quick-changing weather lead us to a long line of fans waiting with a beautiful view of Louisville’s skyscrapers along the Ohio River in the background. It was a hot afternoon, but the refreshing breeze and The Hunter Smith Band’s country music made the 90 degree weather bearable.
Kentucky’s Classic Hits Station 97.9 FM was with us playing “Funky Town” from their tie-dyed VW van, as well as our local affiliate ESPN 680. Winners Choice Sports was also there providing fans nationwide with live streaming coverage of the event. This has been archived for fans to see if they were caught on camera at www.ihigh.com/wcs.
Fans gathered and cheered as the red helicopter carrying Colts players Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen arrived next to the Ohio River. Tiny, our 30-foot inflatable football player, welcomed them, while Blue, our mascot, gave them each a special handshake.
Meeting the fans is very special to the Colts players. Fleener enjoys giving back to the fans by visiting with them at fun events like Thursday’s Fan Fest. “[The fans] support us. Ultimately, we play for them. Without them, we wouldn’t have a team or the Colts organization,” said Fleener.
Colts players also enjoy signing autographs and taking pictures. Dwayne Allen loves signing autographs for fans, but he has gotten some crazy requests in the past. “In college, I signed a couple of babies. I didn’t feel comfortable doing it, but they really wanted me to,” Allen said.
I talked to Patrick, 21, from New Albany, Ind. while he was waiting in line with one of his friends and his little brother. He contemplated bringing his dog’s collar for Allen and Fleener to sign, but rethought that idea because their autographs are too special to be slobbered on.
Like many other fans, Patrick is looking forward to the Colts first preseason game August 11. He usually watches the game at the local Buffalo Wild Wings, but sometimes he prefers listening to the game on the radio. “I’m the kind of fan who yells during the game. I try to get the refs to hear me when they mess up,” he joked.
All of our fans had a great time walking around Waterfront Park wearing their new COLTSTRONG bracelets, carrying their Colts schedule posters and testing out their football skills at the Field Goal and Quarterback Challenge stations. We loved meeting all of our dedicated Colts fans in Louisville and look forward to doing this all again for our fans in Northern Indiana in a few weeks. We’ll see you July 12, Ft. Wayne!

The line extended far beyond Baldwin Memorial baseball field at our first Colts Fan Fest last Thursday in Crawfordsville’s Milligan Park. It was a hot night, but the fans didn’t mind. Tiny, our 30-foot inflatable football player, welcomed nearly a thousand fans into our event where they enjoyed eating Papa John’s pizza, getting autographs from Colts cheerleaders and players, walking through Colts In Motion, playing on our multiple inflatables and listening to the Hunter Smith Band.
An hour before the event even started, I wandered through the long, winding line to talk to the excited fans. Crawfordsville local, Ty Biddle loves the Colts, especially one in particular. The 13-year-old looks up to Colts Quarterback Andrew Luck. “I’m the quarterback at my school. I encourage my team to not get down, keep going and be in a happy mood because that’s what he does.”
Although Ty didn’t get to meet Andrew Luck that night, he did get to meet Colts linebacker Jerrell Freeman and cornerback Greg Toler. Fan Fests are just as special to these guys as they are the fans. “My favorite part about meeting fans is putting smiles on the kids’ faces. I used to look up to guys like myself, so it’s a neat feeling,” Freeman said.
There were also several little girls walking around the event excited to meet “Miss Leanna” a.k.a. Colts Cheerleader Leanna E. She is a local idol for these girls since she is from Crawfordsville and works at the local elementary school.
Looking around the event, I saw many future Colts players at the Quarterback Challenge inflatable, fans swaying to the beat of the Hunter Smith Band’s country-music and many happy faces at the bottom of our Colts slide. Three in particular came from Roxanna’s foster children, Lillian, 5, Scarlet, 3, and Wesley, who will be 2 years old next month. “One at a time!” Roxanna kept repeating to the three young ones, who had to have gone down the slide at least twenty times each.
The real commotion came when Blue, the Colts mascot, appeared on top of the Colts In Motion trailer with a t-shirt gun. Fans were tumbling to the ground on top of each other trying to snag a great souvenir. Blue then shot a t-shirt at former Colts punter and lead singer, Hunter Smith. With their history together, it was a sight to see.
Blue missed the first two times, shooting the t-shirt way to the left and then far right. But the third time, Blue was right on target. Hunter Smith stopped mid-song to catch the t-shirt with guitar pick still in hand. “I’ve played a lot of concerts, but this is the best thing that I have ever done!”
I’d classify the Crawfordsville Fan Fest a definite success. We loved seeing so many dedicated Colts fans! We’re all excited to see what our next Fan Fest will bring us. See y’all next Thursday in Louisville at Waterfront Park!
