Transcript for Corn Maze Chaos: When Fun Turns to Fear
Finally, an American past time, mazes carved into corn fields across the country. But what happens when that maze proves too difficult? ABC's Ron claiborclaiborne. Reporter: It's supposed to be a fun, family adventure. But this corn maze outside Sacramento, California, is so puzzling, so confusing, that some people just can't figure out the way out. Ever. I have Kevin on the line -- he's advising he's stuck in a corn maze. We can't find a way out. I don't know what to do anymore. We've been in here like four hours. Reporter: Yes, those are 911 calls from people stuck inside the maze. So many callers, half a dozen this year, that dispatchers have kind of gotten used to it. Do you know where you're at in the corn maze? I mean, we can hear the freeway, but we have no idea how close we are. You can get a little bit worked up when you can't get out of a place and everything looks the same. Reporter: The cool patch pumpkins corn maze has gained such notoriety for being befuddling, it's been featured on the travel channel. No, it's this way. No, this way. Reporter: Finding your way out of a relatively tiny corn maze like this one in New Jersey is hard enough. Now imagine trying to escape from one that's six times larger with nine miles of trails and 400 dead ends -- in the dark. They're afraid and they're tired. Reporter: The maze has just been closed for the season, raised. And no, they didn't find anyone still wandering around inside. Ron Claiborne, ABC news, Chester, New Jersey. Tired of being lost. We'll see you right back here tomorrow night.
