The Queens County Farm Museum's Unisphere-shaped corn maze.

The Queens parks commissioner calls it an “a-maize-ing tribute” to the iconic landmark in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park.

FLORAL PARK, QUEENS — The Queens County Farm Museum has released a sneak peek of its new, three-acre corn maze in the shape of Flushing Meadows-Corona Park’s iconic Unisphere, which opens this weekend.

The Unisphere-inspired Amazing Maize Maze makes its grand debut during the 37th Annual Queens County Fair, a two-day extravaganza featuring carnival rides and games, performances and the Queens Farm’s blue ribbon contest.

“This a-maize-ing tribute pays homage to Queens’ roots and celebrates one of our city’s most iconic landmarks,” Queens Borough Commissioner for NYC Parks Michael Dockett said in a statement when the maze was announced in August.
