Like a good mystery novel, mazes are full of unexpected twists and occasional dead ends, and the killer always turns out to be the minotaur. Unravel your own conundrum with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get a ticket to the South Texas Maize in Hondo (up to a $10 value).
South Texas Maize revels in the autumn harvest with farm-fresh concessions and family activities crowned by a 7-acre hay maze. Adventurers can grab passports for help navigating through an hour’s worth of puzzling turns or may forgo help and tackle the twists in the bright sunlight or dark of night with only a flashlight or laser pointer to guide them. Unlike many fall labyrinths, South Texas Maize utilizes hay rather than corn due to hay's natural resistance to drought, insects, and snowmen seeking corncob pipes. Following a feast for the feet, visitors satisfy their stomachs by purchasing on-site concessions or sprawling out in the shaded picnic area with a home-brought lunch. Those seeking additional amusement may tour the surrounding farmland on a hayride while kiddies feed goats and slip down two jumbo slides. For an additional fee, offspring may leap onto the corn-popper jumping pillow or launch an ear into the stratosphere or the mouth of the neighbor's pig with the corn cannon.
