|THE CORN MAZE CHALLENGE
From 9am to 1pm each Tuesday through Friday in October, we are offering an additional fun and
educational experience in our Themed Corn Maze for groups from middle school on up through high
school and to business and corporate groups that would like to come and "Challenge" their
classmates, or their co-workers, by using their knowledge of whatever topic they choose to see
which team can get through the maze the quickest.
HOW IT WORKS
Each school or group will need to break in to small collaborative teams. Each team will then appoint
a team facilitator that will be the one person with each team that has access to the maze map and
answers. If it is a school group, each collaborative team will need either a teacher or chaperone to
act as their facilitator and stay with their assigned team. The collaborative team that gets through
the maze quickest with the least amount of hints or answers from their facilitator are the winners.
