Autumn is the only season where pumpkins are judged by their personality as well as their performance in the swimsuit competition. Get to know fall's finest with today's Groupon: for $8, you get two all-day corn-maze passes to Hubb’s Corn Maze in Clinton (a $16 value). This Groupon can be used toward upgrading to a master pass. The maze is open to the public from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Friday, from 1 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Saturday, and from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday from September 17 to November 6.
Lauded by the Fay Observer, Hubb’s Corn Maze challenge navigators of all ages with 5 miles of twisting and turning trails carved into 12 acres of high corn. Boot up inner GPS systems and set off through the cornfield’s network of passages, designed in the shape of a shuttle to honor the 30-year NASA space-shuttle program and ward off curious extraterrestrials. In the two larger mazes, the longest of which is 3 miles, wanderers sleuth for 12 checkpoints secreted throughout the corn; navigators who punch their cards at all 12 points can register to win prizes, which in the past have included a $1,000 shopping spree at Cross Creek Mall. Beginners may enjoy the short maze, and youngsters can frolic through a simple half-mile maze designed especially for toddlers, by toddlers.
After conquering the maze, wanderers can linger to enjoy free activities. Kids can conquer a mini-bale maze, compete at a corn toss, run through a tire playground, ascend a wooden play tower, and attempt to fuse glass in a sandbox. Afterward, revive with a drink or snack at the concessions stand. Free parking is available, and kids under 2 get in free with a paid adult ticket. An adult must accompany children through the mazes.
Hubb's Corn Maze
From giant dinosaurs to soaring space shuttles, Hubb's Maze captures the imagination with its annually changing maze designs. Every year, guests can explore paths spread throughout over 10 acres of land. After sharpening their navigational skills in a pair of shorter mazes, guests and adult-accompanied kids can search for 12 checkpoints in two mazes that stretch nearly 4 miles. During each trek, roaming staff ensure that nobody gets lost or harasses the scarecrows, who are busy. Adding to the fun, participants can register for prizes ranging from tickets to sporting events to weekend getaways.
During the harvest season, the team at Hubb's Maze turns its eye for innovation toward scaring folks spit-less. Rather than throwing a handful of doofuses in janky masks into the maze, the creative crew set their sights on reinventing traditional haunted attractions. The result: a separate addition, the Trail of Fears with mile after terrifying mile of scares based on people's actual phobias, and an attraction that straight-up challenges you to conquer it.
Upon mastering the mazes, youngsters can ascend a tire mountain, play laser tag, race down slides, and craft sculptures in a giant sandbox. Concessions including hot dogs, burgers, and fries energize guests—as do occasional live acts such as magicians and bands.
