Estes Park's Stanley Hotel was the inspiration for Stephen King's novel The Shining, but it has long faced one key problem: The hedge maze that audiences saw in the iconic film version? It didn't exist.
Now, 35 years later, the hotel finally has that hedge maze. Sort of.
"It's a little smaller than I would have thought," remarked Earl South as he walked through the maze for the first time. "I think I had the expectation of like, BOOM! here's the maze, and not having to see the process of it growing in. So probably in a year or two it's going to be really spectacular."
