It's Opening Soon...The Amazing Corn Maze In Hauser Idaho!
HAUSER, Idaho - The Amazing Corn Maze, Located in Hauser ID, Will Officially Open on September 24, 2010.
Wrapping up months of preparation (planting over 420,000 plants) and days of cutting about 5 miles of paths inside more than 12 acres of cornfield, the Hauser ID Amazing Corn Maze is ready to open to the public. The maze, which also serves as a fundraiser for a variety of nonprofit sports groups, and the Kootenai County food bank, will be open to the public for six weeks starting September 24th and run through October 31st.
According to Lynn and Cheryl Humphreys, owners of C&L Farms, there are five totals mazes to choose from: a beginner maze, an intermediate maze, an advanced maze, a haunted trail which will be open nights starting Oct 9th and finally a Mega Haunted Maze opening at night starting October 22nd.
"People are given a map, and they can choose to use the map or not. We don't want anyone getting lost but want them to enjoy the challenge" Said Mr. Humphreys "There is also two separate games to play inside the maze. "We have built in 18 different check points. Once you reach that check point you can punch your map with a check point specific hole punch. If you get all 18 punches you can turn your card in to win prizes. Also new to the maze this year is a game called FSI (Farm Scene Investigation) it is a fun twist on the game Clue. You will use your FSI Investigator card and the check points to find out Who Dunit. It is really fun and we are told the game is a huge hit at mazes all across the nation."
"We tried to add some new excitement to this year's maze" Said the Humphreys. "The maze is great family fun but we wanted to offer even more this year. So not only did we add the FSI game, we also added a petting zoo which will be open every Saturday and Sunday until 5pm, they will also occasionally offer camel and pony rides, and finally new to this year's event is a corn cannon. We will have a high powered cannon that will shoot cobs of corn into a field filled with targets. The cannon can shoot corn up to 600 feet. That is 2 football fields. We are excited about these new attractions and think maze goers will too." Also offered at the maze are food concessions serving everything from pulled pork sandwiches to kettle corn and hot drinks like coffee, cider and cocoa to warm the crowd on cold nights and a variety of family community minded businesses that have sponsored fun activities at the event. Little Smiles Pediatric Dentistry in Post Falls for example will be giving away 100 free children's admission tickets as well as being on site at the maze with their Morris the Moose bean bag toss game for kids to play and win prizes.
The maze was designed and cut by Shawn Stolworthy of Maze Play. Shawn cuts about 90 mazes all over the United States each year. Shawn calls Firth ID home so the Maze in Hauser is his final maze of the season.
The cost of the maze is $8 for adults, $5 for Seniors 60+ and children ages 5-12. Children 4 and under are free. The prices for the haunted mazes are $10 per person. The maze also offers special rates for large groups.
