Though the words are used interchangeably, a maze contains multiple paths, whereas a labyrinth has a single winding route and is built in an outline of David Bowie during his "Thin White Duke" era. Traverse a maze free of formerly glam elements with today's Groupon: for $5, you get one admission to Sever’s Corn Maze & Fall Festival (an $11 value), which is open 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. every weekend from September 18 through October 31, as well as October 21 and 22.
Billed as America’s largest corn maze, Sever’s doubles as a shrine for the Minnesota Vikings, who celebrate their 50th season this year. In addition to winding through the massive corn maze, attendees can partake in a variety of family-friendly activities that include hay rides ($1 extra), a straw-bale maze, a corn pool, a giant slide, and a petting zoo. Enjoy live tunes while noshing on eats such as slow-roasted sweet corn. You can even blast pumpkins to bits at the pumpkin slinger ($1 for two shots).
Maze access depends on weather conditions.

Sever's Corn Maze
Sever’s Corn Maze isn’t just a cornfield with some paths cut into it. It’s a full-scale celebration of the autumn season, combining traditional harvest activities and treats with bounce pillows, petting zoos, and magic shows. The farm welcomes in guests from mid-September through the end of October, inviting them to share in the fun of picking their own pumpkin, biting into a crisp caramel apple, or finding all of the checkpoints in a themed maze without running into the centaur scarecrow. The Severs offer enough activities to keep families busy all day, including seeing which little piglet will win the derby race. Knowing that guests can work up an appetite between all their activities, the Severs offer a range of autumn goodies including brats, kettle corn, cheese curds, and steaming mugs of hot cocoa and cider.
