Like life, a corn maze involves a complex series of twists and turns that, based on the path chosen, can lead to success or to a scarecrow friendship lasting a lifetime. Navigate kernel-based routes with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get two tickets to the Edmonton Corn Maze in West Edmonton (up to a $20 value). Admission for children ages 5–11 is $8, and children 4 and younger can enter free when accompanied by a paid general admission.
The Edmonton Corn Maze delights wanderers of all ages with 15 acres of sprawling paths currently carved into a hockey-player homage to the 2012 IIHF World Junior Championship. Trail detanglers navigate the two phases of the complex corn network by checking in with helpful numbered posts to keep on course, and the maze’s 5 kilometres of pathways offer up 85 unique decision points that test participants’ rock-paper-scissors prowess. A bridge lookout provides a vantage point from which orienteers can scan the premises for potential passages and ensure they stay two steps ahead of direction-seeking crows. Average amblers generally spend one hour traversing the labyrinth, and those with keen cranial compasses have been known to twist through the eared channels in 20 minutes. Edmonton Corn Maze also offers a bevy of nonmaze activities for all ages, including a bounce-infused jumping pillow, friendly farm animals, and a farmyard replete with picnic tables for premaze strategizing or après-navigation noshing.
