A recently discovered alternative to the indoors, going "outside" offers adventurous explorers exposure to things such as wind, sunshine, and the naturally occurring mazes found in corn fields. Leave the indoors with today's Groupon: for $4, you get one admission to A Maze in Corn (up to an $8.50 value). This Groupon expires October 31, 2010.
The massive cornfield maze, which features a yearly changing theme, is conveniently located about 10 minutes south of Winnipeg near St. Adolphe. Your Groupon is good for admission for as long as it takes you to find your way through the twists and turns to the end of the dirt-pathed labyrinth. Flee to the family-friendly corn forest and walk or run the trails in the crisp open air, all while partaking in the maze’s scavenger hunt. First-daters, vampires, and recently arrived travellers from Russia still acclimating to the time difference will enjoy exploring the maze by flashlight after dark, where creepy stalks of corn and menacing corgis lurk around every darkened corner (the last entry into the maze occurs at 9 p.m.)
You can check the corn maze’s daily updated website prior to your visit for trail conditions, recommended footwear advice, and personalized horoscopes, ensuring you’re properly prepared for any puddles or unexpected proposals that appear along the path.
This Groupon is not valid for the Haunted Forest.

A Maze in Corn
For owners Clint and Angie Masse, A Maze in Corn isn't just a destination for outdoor adventure—it's an extended family. Since 1998, the Masses have gathered their own families and up to 100 staff members to create a safe, personable environment where visitors can navigate a winding corn maze, meander along on a hayride, or dole out Swedish massages to the pigs, kittens, and sheep in the petting zoo. Mr. Masse's mother embellishes the pumpkin barn with her decorative touches, and the duo's two sons spruce up the surroundings by mowing the grass and cultivating sweet corn.
