UNION GAP -- A yakima Valley tradition kicked off Wednesday night in Union Gap and Toppenish. That is if you're into the spooky side of the season.

Schell's Massive Corn Maze in Union Gap and The Nightmare Corn Maze in Toppenish are open for the Halloween season.

This year's theme is a bit out of this world... alien crop circles. The creators also brought the corn maze into the 21st century.

It was designed and cut using GPS satellite technology... Which we're told could add a little time to your escape.

"So in the past we've had trails that come close together and people cut through," said guide, Sean Perrault. "This year all of our trails are so many feet apart so nothing really comes in close to each other. It really gives it the feel that you're out here in the maze by yourself."

Google maps and Google latitude also give you the ability to use your smart phone to track yourself going through the maze or just pinpoint where you are and which direction to turn.

The pumpkin Chucker is also back. It's basically a sling shot for small pumpkins. There are also hayride and other activities for the kids.

The haunted maze runs every Wednesday through Saturday.
