Design a Maze for the Stanley Hotel

The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado, has been in business over 100 years, but it became much more famous after novelist Stephen King stayed there and was inspired to write The Shining. The current owners embrace the hotel’s connection to the King story (even though the 1980 movie was not filmed there) and are planning to erect a 10,100 square foot hedge maze, consisting of 1,600 to 2,000 Alpine Currant hedge bushes, designed by …well, that could be you!

A design contest is open now for the maze, with instructions and a template provided by the hotel. The deadline to submit your entry is January 31st. Construction will begin immediately, and the finished maze will be unveiled during the 3rd annual Stanley Film Festival on April 30th. -via OTIS (Odd Things I’ve Seen)

It should not miss a pot smoking hole in there. A brand new post-prohibition Colorado is celebrating doing something illegal under federal law.
