COOLSPRING TWP., Pa., (WKBN) – Many fall activities have begun around the community. In Coolspring Township, there is a unique corn maze experience that is inclusive to everyone.
Coolspring Corn Maze’s sensory-friendly maze is in collaboration with Grove City College and CEC Program.
The sensory-friendly maze is an experience aimed to tone down any stimulation, creating a calm environment.
This corn maze will also give students with physical and mental challenges an opportunity to comfortably enjoy fall activities.
“There won’t be any judgment. There will be extra hands to help. No stares. To see the smiles on the kids’ faces, to let them experience something that a-typical children can, it’ll be great,” said Coolspring Corn Maze owner Sara McCullough.
“It won’t be rushed, they can take their time painting, they can take their time communicating, or what they need and making those choices with their community board,” said Grove City Professor Dr. Sam Fecich.
Coolspring Corn Maze and Grove City College have been working on this event for over a year now. There will be sensory stories, calm-down areas, blankets and headphones for hayrides, and extra support for everyone.
Coolspring Corn Maze is located at 537 Franklin Rd.
