The Amaizing Corn Maze: Our Family Adventure

Last weekend we went to The Amaizing Corn Maze as our weekend family outing.  The sun was shining, the weather was beautiful... it was the perfect day to go strolling through a big field of corn!    We began our corn maze adventure, hoping to find all 18 check points scattered throughout the 3 mazes.  Just to ease into things we started with the smallest maze first.

With our maps in hand, our adventure began...


We finished the first corn maze very quickly, possibly in record time, and quickly moved to the next one.  Of course, it was a little bit bigger and more difficult.  With Daddy at the head of the line, we were sure to find our way... 

Right?


 All went great through the second corn maze as well, then it was off to the hardest and biggest.  We found the first two check points rather quickly and without trying too hard.  Then, it happened...

We got lost!

After a couple circles and "We've been here before" moments, we were back on track to finish the maze.  From start to finish, all 3 mazes... it took us almost 1 1/2 hours.  We had a fantastic time, worked together as a team and got some great exercise!


I credit our success to my husband, without him the kids and I would probably still be trying to find our way out of the last corn maze!


The Amaizing Corn Maze has been providing wholesome family fun since 2004.  Which just happens to be the same year my youngest child was born.

At The Amaizing Corn Maze there are 3 different mazes throughout 12 acres of corn, including the maze of terror!   
Small Maze (deer) - 15-20 min. to finish
Medium Maze (elk) - 30-45 min. finish
Large Maze (moose) - 45-60 min. to finish
 
They have also added several new features and attractions to the corn maze this year.  By participating in the maze game and corn cannon you will be eligible to win some great prizes! 


Those attractions include:

  • Maze Game
  • Carnival Rides
  • Corn Cannon
  • Helicopter Rides
  • Tractor Tire Playground
  • --- Much More!!

Love the pictures! We are a bit behind on our fall activities this year. We just got to the pumpkin patch a couple of days ago, and the kids were running late so by the time we arrived it was already their naptime. Between the picking of the pumpkins and the playing in the buckets of dried corn, we ran out of time to do the corn maze! Ah, well, there's always next year!

I'm stopping by from the Wednesday Window hop! You have such a pretty blog! I love the blue flowers... very peaceful! :-)

Have a great week!

Smiles, Jenn @Misadventures in Motherhood
