New York farm creates ‘Super Mario Bros.’ themed corn maze

NEWARK VALLEY, N.Y., Aug. 16 (UPI) — A farm in New York created an elaborate corn maze depicting several characters form the Super Mario Bros. video game franchise.

Stoughton Farm in Newark Valley shared a Facebook event announcing the large mage which featured the faces of video game characters Mario, Luigi, Peach, Toad and Yoshi.

“Come join us this fall for the 2016 corn MAiZE! This year’s theme is the Mario Brothers, combining outdoor adventure with a popular video game,” they wrote.

Tim Stoughton told ABC News the nearly eight acre farm has presented a different theme every year since 2005.

“My wife, Deb, decides the theme,” he said. “She just liked the idea of the Mario brothers because everybody pretty much knows what they are and it’d be fun for the kids to see.”

According to Stoughton, they use grids to create the images and lay it all out on the field before the corn is too tall to see over.

“We wanted something big to do, to keep us profitable and keep the place running,” he said.
