El Paso’s Corn Maze, Pumpkin Patch Opens For the Season
Fall is here -- at least on the calendar --and that means it’s corn maze season in El Paso.
Getting lost among the cornstalks is an annual tradition for many El Paso families, and now there’s a third option for those looking to get an earful of corny weekend fun and adventure: El Paso’s Corn Maze.
This year’s 10-acre corn field has been cut in the likeness of the desert Southwest. In fact, they’re calling it “Desert Southwest,” that's how much it resembles the desert Southwest.
If you think corn mazes aren't mentally engaging enough, this might be the one for you. The design reveals twisting, turning pathways and lots of blind alleys. Uh-oh, I fear someone may have to send up a flare.
Hopefully, everyone will be able to find their way out. As they say in that movie, "may the odds be ever in your favor."
El Paso's Corn Maze is located on Nuevo Hueco Tanks Road in Socorro, making it especially convenient for eastsiders who don’t want to make the trek to New Mexico where the other two area corn mazes are located.
In addition to the 10-acre corn maze, the farm also features a Kiddie Maze and a train ride to Patsy’s Pumpkin Patch where you and the kids can pick out a pumpkin or two to decorate your home with, or carve up for Halloween.
Other fun kiddie activities include a cow train, pedal cars, and a tire pyramid to climb on.
