HONDO, Texas – This year’s corn maze at South Texas Maize just west of San Antonio in Hondo is sending a message in celebration of its 20th anniversary.
This year’s maze spells out “God Bless America” and “Land of the Free” with symbols of a church, dove, fish and praying hands.
In previous years, the corn maze has paid homage to Texas-based grocery chain H-E-B and the beloved San Antonio Spurs.
The maze, located at Graff 7A Ranch, will open for the season on Sept. 19 and is expected to stay open through Nov. 28.
General admission hours are Fridays from 6-9 p.m., Saturdays from 10 a.m.-9 p.m., and Sundays from noon-5 p.m.
The cost for admission is $17.50 for anyone ages three to 64, $12 for seniors ages 65 and older and kids two and younger are free.
“It can take 30 minutes to an hour to find your way in and out of the maze, depending on how directionally challenged one is! We have all maze patrons go through a brief orientation prior to entering into the maze crop,” a ranch official told KSAT.
Admission includes access to the 7-acre maze, hayride, MatterCorn Slide Mountain, Twin Cow Train, Cowboy Ken’s Kiddie Korral, Hay Bale Jump, Colin’s Cluckers and unlimited jumping on two Corn Pop-Poppers, according to Graff 7A Ranch’s website.
Season passes are also available for purchase and group discounts are available.
