SHAFER CORN MAZE

 


2015 -10th Anniversary

“THE MOOSE!”

Open September 12th -  November 1st

We have transformed our 12 acre corn field into a life size puzzle in nearly half a million corn stalks! Much more than just a walk in the corn, our maze paths challenge even the most confident visitors! Professionally designed and cut by MazePlay, this is the only one in Minnesota.  Our paths are just 4 feet wide and give you a great hedge labyrinth feel ~ especially early in the season when the corn is green!


Our 10th anniversary ”The Moose” design for 2015 has two mazes within the design to fit ALL ages.  The large maze has 2.7 miles of paths and is a little more difficult for those that want to challenge themselves - or their family and friends! The small maze has 1 mile of paths and is an exciting challenge as well.  Both of these mazes have 6 checkpoints to find and punch your ticket with a unique shaped paper punch. We also have a short one-way path for the littles ones. Average time to complete the both mazes is 1 to 1.5 hours.

And YES - we do give you a map!!    


Back for 2015:



The scratch off treasure hunt game is within the large maze! Find all 6 checkpoints, use your clues to select the best place to scratch your card to compete with your friends to collect the most treasure! There are 24 different cards so that you all have different odds/outcome in collecting that treasure. Come check it out!




Also within the large maze  is the game “Farm Scene Investigation”. Farmer Joe is missing, there was an incident and it appears to be foul play. Collect the evidence at 6 HIDDEN checkpoints within the large maze to find the weapon, the suspect, and the location of where the crime took place. Solve the puzzle and receive your FSI badge sticker!


FARM SCENE INVESTIGATION APP FOR YOUR PHONE OR TABLET!!

A new fun way to collect your clues and solve the puzzle! The app is free and is a great way to get acquainted with the FSI characters!  You may also use the option of downloading the map with the clue locations.




We also have a challenge for the little ones called "FaRm TRaCks".  There are clues for the kids to collect along the way thru a one-way trail just 2/10 of a mile long to solve the puzzle "Who stole Farmer Joe’s pie?".   


The Shafer Corn Maze features a Farm Animal Petting Zoo, an Adrian Fisher Rope Maze, Human Foosball, Obstacle Course, Corn Bag Toss, and MOrE! Picnic tables are available so you can relax and sip a soda while taking a break or while waiting for friends or family. As always you are welcome to bring your own picnic lunch or birthday cake! Snacks and beverages also available.
