Middlefield, CT (WFSB) -

The corn maze at Lyman Orchards in Middlefield will be rocking out this year.

Its theme is the British invasion, which means the maze will feature rock 'n' roll facts and figures from the phenomenon that swept the U.S. 50 years ago.

"Getting lost in a corn maze is a fall-time tradition here in Connecticut, especially at Lyman Orchards," said John Lyman, executive vice president. "This year's theme is all about the mania and excitement of the 1960s British invasion and the impact it had on rock 'n' roll music."

Orchard officials said the maze is one of the largest in the state. It contains 2 1/2 miles of pathways that typically take people between 20 and 40 minutes to navigate.

The four acre maze will be open to the public starting Saturday. It runs through Sunday, Nov. 2.

"I'm also very proud that we continue to support the American Cancer Society with wholesome family fun," Lyman said.

A dollar from each admission will go to the American Cancer Society. Since 2000, the maze has raised $433,178 for the ACS.

"Through Lyman Orchards' generosity, we have raised an incredible amount of money that goes directly to supporting cancer research, advocacy and services," said Lynn Kipphut of the American Cancer Society. "This is our fifteenth year partnering with Lyman Orchards and we look forward to some fun in the maze to help raise money for a very worthy cause."

Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for children ages 4 through 12. Children 3 years and under are free.

The maze will be open from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. It'll be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, Sunday and holidays, including Labor Day on Monday.
