Here’s a great (world record) reason to visit Manitoba this winter

St. Adolphe, Manitoba doesn’t top many travel bucket lists.

But that doesn’t mean the sleepy town of 1300 residents isn’t worth a visit. Sitting just down the Red River from Winnipeg, St. Adolphe is home to the world’s biggest snow maze. Guinness World Records said so last year. Previously, the world’s largest snow maze existed in Thunder Bay’s Fort William Historical Park.

This year’s maze opens on January 4th and is complemented by bonfires, a warm-up barn, and food and drinks. Visitors can also enjoy a sleigh ride or luge ride.

The attraction is brought to life by a wonderfully named local company called A Maze in Corn, Inc. Construction required 12 workers to build a 2,789-square-metre labyrinth during a period of six weeks. The maze cost $57,000 and 150 semi-truck loads of snow.
