A recently discovered alternative to the indoors, going "outside," offers adventurous explorers exposure to things such as wind, sunshine, and the naturally occurring mazes found in corn fields. Leave the indoors with today's Groupon: for $6, you get one admission to the corn maze and a hayride at Shuckle's Corn Maze in Gallatin (up to a $12 value). Shuckle's Corn Maze is open from September 24 through October 30, and children 3 and younger are admitted for free.
Romp through the 6 acres of corn-based twists and turns for a vexingly entertaining evening. The maze opens at various hours, with the latest start time at 9 p.m. Come post-sunset for flashlight-lit fun where explorers can ambush friends with a strategically placed flashlight beam or a vintage 14th-century pet minotaur.
After completing a corn circuit, hop on the Hey Hey Hayride to experience hay-filled fun without heckling a scarecrow. Though this Groupon does not include costs for all activities, guests can romp between stations for face painting, bale mountaineering, and more. A variety of autumn activities, such as the corn cannon, the 40-foot super slide, and the expanded pumpkin patch, absorb the members of any household.
Shuckle's Corn Maze & Pumpkin Patch
Night has chased the light out of the sky, forcing the lone figure weaving in and out of the towering corn stalks to slice through the darkness with a flashlight. The evening’s silence is broken by an eerie noise that causes the figure to break into a frantic run, but his escape is thwarted as his friends leap out of the corn into his path, giggling and hooting, “You weren’t scared, were you?!” This is not a scene from a horror movie, but instead from Shuckle's Corn Maze’s Maze by Flashlight event, which dares visitors to navigate the almost 7-acre maze with only a flashlight to illuminate their path. Dedicated to delighting visitors with family-friendly activities, Shuckle’s staff welcomes guests of all ages to spend the day celebrating autumn’s arrival.
On any given fall day, the staffers usher intrepid explorers into the maze to maneuver the numerous twists, turns, and vengeful mutant corncobs therein. The Kiddie Hippity Hoppity mini maze grants youngsters a chance to tackle an age-appropriate labyrinth, and events such as hayrides, face painting, and bouncy pony-hop races unleash the inner children of all those who participate. The pumpkin patch's rotund inhabitants eagerly await the moment they’ll be scooped up and taken home to a new family, while audiences nestled in the Ho-Hum theater shimmy along with an ever-changing roster of musicians belting out bluegrass, country, and gospel tunes.
