Kids of All Ages LOVE Our Corn Maze! Whether you’re 5 or 55, our corn maze offers a challenging and fun adventure that inspires creativity and teamwork. In fact our corn maze is the perfect activity for school field trips or corporate team building programs. Prairie Gardens & Adventure Farm offers a brand new theme every year!  In 2011, it was the Gold Rush Corn Maze , in 2012, it was the Sturgeon County Farm Maze; in 2014 it’s a – a 7 acre huge cornfield maze with 5 km of maze-ways and puzzles to solve.  This year’s quest?  A Celtic maze complete with bagpiper and castle, to celebrate the Scottish heritage of the Town of Bon Accord! Come join the fun!

Groups

Groups (10 or more) can book a Flashlight  n’ Campfire Adventure on Evenings (Wed- Sat) in September and October. Please call ahead for a reservation at 780-921-2272.   Evening admission is $15 per person + GST and includes the use of a campfire site, complete with firewood and roasting sticks for hotdogs and marshmallows!  There is a minimum charge of $150.

There is plenty to do at the farm before dusk – visit the baby goats at the petting farm, take a turn on the pedal karts, play a giant game of chess, checkers or snakes and ladders, pick a pumpkin in October, scream through the haunted house, or gem mine* for real amethysts and gems to take home at the Lost Lemon Mine.  * Gem mining costs $4 / pail of ore.

Don’t forget your flashlights!  Evening maze hours: 5pm – 9:30pm.  Gates close at 10pm.

Special Note:  The MEGA Maze is 1 km away from the campfire sites; please plan to provide your own transportation to and from the maze.  It’s a long walk in the dark!

Maze Trivia
Use trivia to help find your way through the maze. At each checkpoint, you will answer a question. If you answer correctly, you will be headed towards the next checkpoint. If you answer incorrectly, you will be headed the wrong away or even towards a dead end. Choose from tons of fun categories for all ages.

QR Hunt
Find checkpoints in the maze using your phone. When you come to a checkpoint, either enter a code or scan a QR code and your phone will track that you have found the checkpoint.

 Corn Maze School Field Trips – Teachers

Add an additional educational component to your fieldtrip this year at Prairie Gardens! Try our Maze Master Trivia. We know you are under constant pressure to make everything have an educational value to it, and your trip can now include learning that fits specifically with your curriculum. As the students navigate through the corn maze, they can answer multiple choice questions about one of our premade topics, or you can create your own questions. If they choose the right answer to a question, they will advance through the maze in the right direction. If they answer incorrectly, they will head for a dead end or in the wrong direction.

Maze Master Trivia is great for schools because you can customize it for your group. Just enter 5 multiple choice questions on our website, and hit print to generate your unique maze trivia card. Make enough copies for your students (or for younger children, just give a copy to chaperones to read to the students) and bring them with you on your fieldtrip.

How it Works for Students

  1. As students enter the maze, you will pass out their question card complete with 5 questions and answers. For younger students, it may be best to just give cards to adult leaders to read to the students. But for older students, this can be a great way to practice reading skills.
  2. When students come to each of the numbered checkpoints in the corn maze, they will read the corresponding question on their card. For example, the students come to checkpoint #1. They will then look at their card and read that question #1 is, “What eats corn?” Then, they will look at their answers. “Left: Cars,  Right: Geese.” If they think it is Car, they will head to the right and end up in a dead end because their answer was wrong. But if they answer Geese, they will head to the left and be headed towards checkpoint #2.
  3.  So, correct answers show learning, and also help them master the maze.

Types of Questions

Each class that visits our farm is studying different topics, so we are putting the power into your hands. You can create customized questions to fit the needs of your class. You can upload questions related to your visit such as facts about pumpkins, corn, plants, fall, Halloween, or farming. Or, you can create questions about some topic that your class is studying. For example, you could ask history questions, ask question to practice for an upcoming science test, create some simple math problems, or even practice that week’s spelling words.

How it Works for Teachers

  1. Creating your question sheet is easy. First, it is probably best to create your questions in a separate document as a backup. Each question will need the question, the correct answer, and up to two incorrect answers.
  2. Once you have your questions, you need to get them to match up with the right way to go in the maze. Luckily, the Maze Master takes care of all the hard work for you. Since he knows the maze by heart, just tell him the questions, right answers, and wrong answers, and he will generate your question card for you. To enter your questions, visit the maze master. Just enter your questions in the form and click “View Printable Sheet” at the bottom when finished. 
  1. Once you have finished entering questions, be sure to to click “View Printable Sheet”. Your question card will automatically generate. Make sure you print your card. Your card does not get sent to us, and we have no way of printing it. You must print or make copies of your card for each student/group leader and bring them with you on your trip.

Trivia FAQs

Do we have to use trivia with the maze?
No, but it does add an extra educational component to your trip if desired.\

Do I have to write the questions?
You certain may write the questions, but we do have some premade written categories online that you can print including ‘Farm Animal Sounds’ and ‘Pumpkin Trivia for Children’.

Where do we get our printed cards?
You must create and print your own question cards before arriving at our farm. We do not have access to cards you create.

If we get every answer right, does that mean we will never get lost?
No, there are about 10 decision points (intersections) in the maze where you could go the wrong way. However, this maze is only 1/2 acre, so there are only 5 questions in the maze located at the most major intersections.

What is the cost?
Maze Master Trivia is included free with the corn maze for school groups.

What is the recommended age?
The concept of asking a child a question could apply to any age, but children in kindergarten on up will benefit the most. For young children, it may be best to just give the card to leaders and they can verbally ask the students the questions. For groups older than 2nd grade that follow a special field trip plan, please ask us about using questions for the entire maze or in our Impossible Maze.
