Sever’s Corn Maze

On Sunday the Hubby and I went to Sever’s Corn Maze in Shakopee, MN.  The weather was beautiful – sunny with a clear blue sky, and a cool nip in the air to give it that perfect fall feeling.

This is a view of this year’s corn maze, Vikings 50th Season (the Vikings are the MN football team for you non-native, non-sports readers), from the air:

The maze itself is gigantic – it took us about two hours to wander through it and find all 26 of the hidden signposts that were scattered throughout the maze.  That little tan board to the left of the picture above is actually a bridge where probably 40 people or so can stand side-by-side and look out over the maze.

At Sever’s they have pony and camel rides (yes, camels in freaking Minnesota – right der alongside dah corn, eh!).  They’ve got an area where an old-timey band plays and visitors can buy “state fair food” like corn dogs, cheese curds, roasted corn, and fresh-squeezed lemonade.  There’s a petting zoo, a corn “pool”, hayrides, a miniature hay bale maze for the younger kids, a pumpkin patch, magic shows, carnival games and all sorts of other entertainment.

We had a blast.

    It looks way cool. Reminds me of when we took you guys to the Pumpkin Farm up north way back when WGN hosted it. and there was the one closer to us. They’re both gone now, I think because of housing developments but I’m not for certain about the one up North.

    Wow! Stumbled across this blog and looking at these aireal pictures is amazing! I was one of the people who cut it out back in June! All ( 8 of us or so) took about 3 days to carve it out! Severs is the place to work in the summer.
