While in Edmonton, another fun thing that you can do with your family is the Corn Maze, located 10 minutes southwest of the Alberta capital. The maze is a 10-acre field with a number of cleared pathways that form a maze. writer Karen Evenden had the chance to get lost in this inventive and confusing puzzle last year and wrote about her experience.

Evenden: “At the entrance to the maze there is a choice of ‘passports’ with a range of trivia questions designed to help you find the numbered checkpoints inside. Of course if you were so inclined, it’s possible to wander around without the aid of the passport, but having the target of finding the numbered signs in the correct order creates more of a challenge and promotes teamwork. We disregarded the ‘Animal Quizdom’ and ‘Are you Smarter than a Fifth Grader?’ passports for ‘Where in the World …?’ (being travel enthusiasts) and we headed off to conquer the maze. The corn, which rises up to 10 feet, lasts for a period of six weeks until the cooler weather sets in. The Edmonton Corn Maze is open from early September until the third week in October and offers a day-time or night-time experience.”
