What You'll Get
Corn mazes, like many of life's greatest challenges, require participants to remain levelheaded and navigate confusing hurdles and cannot be overcome by screaming at feet to "Get me out of here!" Lose yourself in fun with today's Groupon: for $7, you get two admissions to the Portland Timbers Maize at The Pumpkin Patch on Sauvie Island (up to a $14 value). Admission is normally $5 for children ages 6–12 and $7 for seniors 60 and older. This offer is not valid for admission to the Haunted Maize.
In its 13th year of befuddling pathfinders, the annually changing maze at The Pumpkin Patch challenges explorers to navigate through a mile of twists, turns, and dead ends. This autumn, the agricultural labyrinth celebrates the Portland Timbers' inaugural Major League Soccer season, touting a 5-acre replica of the club's logo. The maze's design—meant to exhibit the city's dedication to sports and corn's enthusiasm for midfielders—treats trailblazers to an easy start before a more perplexing back end. Maze-goers can opt to weave their own way through the web of cloud-scraping stalks or utilize provided passports, which harbor helpful directions in the form of answers to Timbers-based trivia questions. Additionally, observation bridges volunteer panoramic views of Sauvie Island, allowing visitors to observe sun-splashed fields and corn's wondrous metamorphosis into popcorn from above.

About Portland Maize
Many traditional artists paint linen or sculpt stone. For an agri-artist such as Portland Maize's Craig Easterly, though, a cornfield makes a perfectly good canvas. For two decades now, Craig has been chiseling through the 12-foot stalks of his field to create what is from the ground a maze of rustling green tunnels and from above a stunning tableau of Portland themes and images.
Along with its maze, Portland MAiZE is one of many fall-centric, family-friendly activities to experience at The Pumpkin Patch. Overall-clad patrons bounce along on free hayrides in October, get crowned king of the hay mountain, or mimic the beastly accents of farm animals in the big red barn.
