All too often, autumn weekends are spent completing domestic chores, such as reinforcing the house's Deeping Wall in preparation for winter's orc sieges. Take an opportunity to actually enjoy your weekend with today's Groupon: for $10, you get admission for two to the corn mazes and other attractions (up to a $20 value) at Corn Fun Family Farm in Casco. This Groupon expires Monday, November 1, 2010.
Sprawling across 20 acres, Corn Fun provides a full folio of fall family festivities, including two themed corn mazes (free for kids under 5; a $6 value for children ages 5–11; a $10 value for adults). This year's theme captures the rivalry of Michigan and Michigan State with players and helmets emblazoned in the corn, as well as a giant humpback whale spouting Gatorade at victorious coaches. Labyrinth lovers can choose to meander the more than four miles of twisting trails on a sun-soaked autumn day, or by flashlight on a spooky night. Once you've safely emerged from this monument of Borgesian agriculture, you'll also get to scale a hay-bale pyramid, send tots tottering through the mini hay-bale maze, or watch them make audible boing noises in the bounce house. And in the evening, the whole fam can savor the season with the simple pleasure of sipping cider and eating doughnuts around a crackling bonfire. Don't leave before picking a pumpkin from the patch and experiencing the exotic sounds and smells of the petting zoo's goats, llamas, and more.
If the corn maze's many dead ends and fey goblin kings don't sufficiently tickle your scary spleen, terror junkies can apply the value of their Groupon as credit toward the Haunted Fear Farm ($17 for adults; $13 for kids under 11)—a haunted corn field and forest that contains almost one mile of pitch-black trails, only one way out, and things all around you, lurking in the dark. No flashlights, torches, or pitchforks are allowed. As with movies directed by Michael Bay, you are advised to expect the worst.
