Ages 3 and up – $10 + tax

Ages 2 and under are FREE


DETAILS:
The Hall Family Farm corn maze theme this year is based on “Space – the Final Frontier”.  The corn maze is taking people 45-90 minutes to get through it and build the complete map. Bring your smart phone with a QR code reader (iHandy Quickscan for iPhone, QRDroid for Android works well) or Snapchat works too. You will be challenged with space trivia questions to successfully complete the map. If you don't have a smartphone or don't want to do the smartphone challenge, we have a paper and pencil version you can do in the maze.

Bonus:  Find all nine map pieces and answer the nine trivia questions with no more than 4 mistakes and your phone will tell you to go to the sales tent for a reward. You must show the reward screen at the sales tent to claim your reward.

The maze covers over 5 acres of land and features over 2 miles of interconnecting pathways and is sure to keep your family entertained!  You will also have access to the other family friendly activities we have available at the farm. Come pick a pumpkin, try our mini mazes, have a picnic, race the ducks with old-fashioned water pumps, or relax with a slushie and a sing-a-long hayride.
