McCoard's Mystery Corn M…
The McCoard’s Mystery Maze is sponsored by McCoard’s Garden Center. The corn maze has three different mazes at varying levels of difficulty and length. The Kids maze is .3 miles long, our Adventurous maze is 1.6 miles and the Insane maze is 3 miles. Admission allows you access to all three mazes. We have designed the maze to be an interactive activity that makes a trip inside the maze more than just a haphazard stroll. Solve a crime scene investigation while in the maze. Option 1: The Farm Scene Tracks. Farmer Joe’s pie is missing. We need you to find out who stole it. Six of the animals took off through the corn maze with the stolen pie. Navigate the corn maze to find all the tracks, and then match up the prints to all the animals that are guilty of the pie thievery. Option 2: Farm Scene Investigation (similar to Clue©). Farmer Joe is missing and we need your help to find out who kidnapped him. There are seven animal suspects, weapons, and locations that we need you to investigate. Players collect all the clues on a punch card that they take through the maze to solve the mystery and earn an FSI badge. Zombie Paintball Patrol: In the spring of 2014, the Head Farmer at McCoard’s Garden Center began experimenting with the cross-breeding of plants, hoping to create a new breed of corn that would never die and produce fruit year-round. The farmer was very close to creating a breed of corn that would never die, even if deprived of sun and water. Then, everything went horribly wrong. There was a big chemical spill which affected all of the people working in and around the greenhouses. The people who survived haunt the greenhouses at night, feeding on human flesh. They feel no emotion and sense no pain. They do not die even when deprived of water. They appear to be walking dead men or ZOMBIES!!! That’s why we need your help. We’ll send you out in teams to kill as many zombies as you can. If you see someone infected, shoot to kill or you may not survive the night.
