While modern doctors prescribe crossword puzzles to exercise the mind, ancient farmers knew that corn mazes were like sudoku for the feet. Test the brain power of your sneakers with today’s Groupon: for $10, you will receive two tickets to the Amazing Maize Maze at Long Acre Farms (up to a $20 value), located in Macedon. This Groupon expires on October 31, 2010.
Long Acre Farms' Amazing Maize Maze ($10 value for ages 5 and up, $6.50 for ages 2–4) celebrates its 13th year of corn-related convolutions with this year’s five-acre maze, “Lucky 13," a 2.5-mile labyrinth of perplexing paths, two bridges, and an observation tower. Equipped with a flag, a pencil, and a gameboard, trekkers will set out on a husky hootenanny in search of 12 mailboxes, each containing a piece of a map that, when combined, points the way out of the maze. As guests traverse the sea of amber waves, they'll enjoy music, jokes, and puzzles as they look to escape a scarecrow's fate within the cornfield. Access to the Back 40 play area is also included on Thursdays through Sundays from Aug. 13 to Sept. 17, and a hayride is available on Saturdays and Sundays from Sept. 18 to Oct. 31.
Though the Maize Maze can be traversed by light of day, Long Acre Farms also holds special Moonlight Maze events ($10 for ages 12 and up, $8.50 for ages 5–11) on select weekends. Brave the dusky hike as thousands of eavesdropping ears listen in on your strategies, all while the stacks of stalks judge you via high-fructose whispers.
