La Ferme Forget in Laval offers visitors some pretty un-forget-able experiences, including their famous corn maze, available to visit all weekend.

The farm is not exaggerating when they call their cornfield “giant” as it spans the area of over five football fields (3.5 hectares). With all that real estate, the farm manufactured two mazes; a shorter one that takes about 20 minutes to solve and a longer one that can take over an hour.
