This week begins the autumn season, and Colonel Cob’s Corn Maze in Oxford is open again with an all-new maze and several new attractions.
The pathways through Colonel Cob’s 7-acre cornfield this year is in the shape of a giant pirate ship. You should be able to navigate your way through the ship and safely back to the dock in about 30 minutes. But for the “directionally challenged,” it could take much longer. Co-owners Tommy and Emy Mitcham have also placed water-related trivia clues throughout the maze to help you navigate. If you answer the trivia questions about uses of water, large bodies of water, etc. correctly, they’ll point you to the next clue and out of the maze. Incorrect answers will send you in circles and ensure that you just wander about in the corn.
Other attractions at Colonel Cob’s include the traditional pumpkin patch, hayrides, bonfires, helicopter rides, pony rides, a corn cannon, inflatable slides and jumpers, a sand mountain full of treasure, and barbeque catered by Where There’s Smoke Barbeque and Catering from Mansfield. The Mitchams also provide educational activities for children and school groups such as movies and audios about farming and farm life.
At Colonel Cob’s, tickets are $8 for the maze and $4 for the hayride through the farm. Combined tickets are available. Helicopter and pony rides cost extra.
