2. Corn Mazes
Two amazing corn mazes located in the Calgary area!
Calgary Corn Maze
The Calgary Corn Maze at 284022 Township Road 224, just outside of SE Calgary is a terrific change of pace for party planners. It is a completely outdoor setting so keep in mind that can be tedious to book around our ever-changing weather. However, if you are able to make it work there are so many different and unique things to do such as:
- A) Calgary Corn Maze Railway – Hop on a miniature railroad and take a ride around the farm and learn all about the history.
- B) Jumping Pillows – Each one is bigger than most houses and can definitely bring the kid out in any person of any age.
- C) Potato Sack Slide – 80 feet long and three lanes wide.
- D) Zip Lines – 150 long, all ages welcome.
- E) Low Ropes Course – 8 excellent obstacles for all ages.
- F) Mini Golf – 18 holes farm-themed fun.
You will definitely get your money’s worth. Remember that you can use up an entire day to get through all of the activities which is nice if you would like a longer party. They offer a variety of non-covered picnic tables and they are on a first come first serve basis, or book your party directly for economical rates.
Cobb’s Adventure Park & Corn Maze
The Cobb’s Adventure Park & Corn Maze NE Calgary 1500 84th Street NE is another unique corn maze outdoor party extravaganza! There is so much to do here and the vibe is amazing. The beautiful sunshine and blue sky set against the green corn in the summer, or the yellow corn in the fall (my favorite) is an amazing addition to your party. The sights and sounds make up half of the fun!
Petting Zoo, Corn Mazes & Games, 3 Little Pigs, Blacklight Minigolf, Climbing Wall, Euro Bungy, Spider Climb, Blaster Balls, Ropes Course, Fun Balls, Bouncy World, & Archery Tag are just some of the amazing things to do at this fun packed place!
