Like masterfully escaping from a pair of blazing handcuffs, navigating a maze of maize may necessitate coughing up the key and fire extinguisher swallowed for such an occasion. Construct your own skilled escape with today's Groupon: for $8, you get admission for two to the Edmonton Corn Maze (up to a $16 value, including the $1-off coupons available on its site).
The Edmonton Corn Maze carves more than 5 kilometres of twists, turns, dead ends, and periodic mental breakdowns into a corn-field labyrinth. The kernelled crop in the maze currently reaches over 11 feet tall, towering high above you and your puzzle-solving economic advisor as you roam the dry dirt paths. Whether you go with a sweetie or a friend, you'll find plenty of opportunity to playfully pop around the winding maze's green edges and contemplate which direction to take at 85 decision points. Though the cheaters and fortune-tellers can theoretically wander through the produce puzzle in less than half an hour, most path amblers complete the adventure in about an hour or more.
The Edmonton Corn Maze, which has been tricking and trapping young adventure seekers and out-of-place penguins for 10 years now, works in conjunction with the Edmonton Food Bank to raise money, food, and awareness of the stockpiled pantry's work. As such, this year's maze design and mascot is the food bank's chapeau'd grocery bag "Fill - Up." Take a day to get lost among your thoughts with a thousand friendly ears, or race an indecisive ex to the end to prove your superiority. Check online for info about hours and how to get there.
