In autumn, pumpkins mature and find outlets for self-expression, such as grinning creepily and spontaneously bursting on a neighbor's doorstep. Witness an explosive harvest with today's Groupon: for $18, you get an unlimited season pass to Cornbelly’s Corn Maze and Pumpkin Fest in Lehi, redeemable from Friday, September 30, to Saturday, October 29 (a $37.31 value). Children 2 and younger are admitted free.
Cornbelly’s has whirled visitors through 12 acres of unexpected twists and enthralled them with a vast array of harvest activities since 1996. This season’s maze design by Brett Herbst—who has devised more than 2,000 mind-vexing corn mazes—pays homage to NASA’s space program, allowing wanderers to orbit corn planets and trek through the components of a giant space rover. Navigators seeking further thrills than their own corn-based paranoia can sojourn into the haunted maze, whose creepy causeways are woven with animatronics, live apparitions, and other surprises, while miniature trail detanglers can make their way through the kiddie maze.
Once they’ve had their fill of puzzlement, visitors can undertake the other activities included in their unlimited season pass. Guests of all ages can achieve advanced altitudes on the giant jumping pillow or, hobnob with farm fauna in the Barnyard Animal Band. Pick a prize pumpkin or a gourmet gourd from the pumpkin courtyard or watch the fastest pig take first in the pig race before going on to star in Babe 6: Pig Visits Bars in Midsized College Town.
Cornbelly's Corn Maze & Pumpkin Fest
Autumn has some of the best seasonal activities of the year, from crunching through the leaves to find the perfect pumpkin to holding close to your loved ones while running through the eerie turns of a htaunted house. That’s why when Brett and Nicole Herbst first started making their corn mazes—which they say once held a Guinness world record—they didn’t stick to just one activity. They decided to fill their farm with a celebration of the whole harvest season.
During the day, guests can partake of the farm’s more than 40 activities and events, including squeal-filled pig races, corn and pumpkin cannons, and a Halloween trick-or-treat parade. This year's main maze is themed around The Wizard of Oz and is cut into 12 acres of murmuring stalks, offering quick, easy paths for little ones, complex designs for the ultimate adventurers, and a haunted nighttime excursion guided only by a flashlight. At night, in an area isolated from all the family fun, gleefully terrified screams drift from Insanity Point, which incorporates evil clowns, the sensation of being buried alive, and an abandoned farmhouse where dentists will try and talk to you even though you obviously can’t talk back.
