Get lost and have fun at Edmonton Corn Maze. The 10-acre, 10-foot tall corn maze may cause you to fight with whoever you bring on this twisty turny journey, but it will be worth the memories you make along the way. Pick a pumpkin from the patch after conquering the corn maze or check out the other activities offered.
“On site, we also have farm animals and jumping pillows, pedal carts and a bunch of games,” says Jesse Kraay, owner and operator of Edmonton Corn Maze. The Farm Market is also open for guests to browse local products from food producers, artisans and crafters from around the county.
What makes the maze unique each year are the fun designs. This year’s maze features a design in honour of Edmonton Food Bank’s 40th anniversary, and Edmonton Corn Maze will collect food bank donations for the remainder of the season.
The corn maze takes about a half hour to complete if you take the right path, but it’ll take closer to an hour or longer for the directionally challenged. With five km of trails and 85 decision points, you’re bound to get lost.
“The corn maze is a great activity that you can do safely. We’ve got lots of space here,” says Kraay. “I like listening to people out in the maze argue and try to find their way out. It’s lots of fun hearing people laughing out there and just having fun.”
Edmonton Corn Maze, located at 26171 Garden Valley Road, Spruce Grove, is open until October 17, or the end of October if the weather permits. The hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. from Tuesday to Saturday and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays. Tickets can be purchased online for a discounted price or in-person at the gate. Online tickets will be available in one hour time slots, and it is asked that guests limit their stay to two or three hours. Walk-ups will not be granted entry if the maze is at capacity, so purchase your tickets ahead of time for guaranteed entry.
Edmonton Corn Maze will be operating with capacity restrictions and social distancing is required in the maze and on the grounds. Masks are not mandatory outdoors, but they are mandatory inside the Farm Market.
