HP Intermission/Corn Maze

As you might have guessed….this is not a post about Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. The reason it’s not a post about that book is because I  haven’t finished reading it yet 😉

Sadly, I am currently on page 503 (out of 870). Phew, there’s a long way to go, but I thought I’d share a timely anecdote.

My husband and I recently went to a corn maze about an hour away from where we live. It was a-maze-ing! haha I couldn’t resist!  But, seriously, it was so fun—AND it reminded me sooo much of the final scene of HP and the Goblet of Fire with the giant maze set up on the quidditch field for the Triwizard Champions.


Corn stalks as far as the eye can see...or about 7 acres worth.

This maze was so fun and super challenging. The fact that it made me feel like I was in a Harry Potter book was just icing on the cake- or, should I say- butter on the cob 😉

I now have corn joke ammo for like 5 years! These people obviously appreciate a good corn joke, anyway.


We definitely were "cornfused" by the end. I'm not ashamed to say we cheated a bit to find our way out!


Triumphant Faces! And, dehydrated and hungry faces too!

My goal at this point is to finish Order of the Phoenix by Thursday and read most of the Half-Blood Prince this weekend. Heh…we’ll see. I may resort to bringing in Deathly Hallows into the midnight movie with me! Ah!

About Lisa Parkin

I'm a hardcore lover of young adult fiction and have been reviewing books since 2011. Other interests include Downton Abbey, heat lightning storms, Harry Potter land and (begrudingly) one orange tabby.
  • Love your pictures and definitely agree it reminds me of that awesome maze in Goblet of Fire/Harry Potter. Fun to relate things that happen in life to books we have read and then wonder exactly which book it was, especially at my age:) LOL Keep plugging Lisa! You’ll make it!

  • You can do it! At least, I hope so, because I’m re-reading along with you and I’m actually quite a bit behind you at this point… just started OotP this evening.

    Good luck!
