Mario Bros. comes to corn maze in New York

Forget navigating pipes, this version of Mario and Luigi has the pair in a corn maze in New York.

The popular video game characters provide the theme for this year's Stoughton Farms 8-acre corn field labyrinth.

The Stoughton's started creating the mazes about 12 years ago.

"We wanted something big to do, to keep us profitable and keep the place running," Tim Stoughton told ABC news.

Stoughton Farms is a working roadside farm owned by Deb and Tim Stoughton. In addition to its "MAiZE," the farmers offer vegetables, fruits and gourds for sale.

The maze themes have featured uplifting messages and typically attract 10,000 people. In the past, the maze designs have had anti-bullying, literacy promotion and renewable energy themes carved out of the corn field.

A company in Utah helped come up with the Mario Bros. design, according to ABC News. It usually takes the Stoughtons a couple of weeks to prepare the field.

Deb Stoughton decided the theme this year.

"She just liked the idea of the Mario brothers because everybody pretty much knows what they are and it'd be fun for the kids to see," Tim Stoughton told ABC News.

The maze is opened Sept. 17 to Oct. 31.
