SAN ANTONIO – What do “Hocus Pocus,” Reba McEntire and dinosaurs have in common? They’re all themes for corn mazes in San Antonio and the surrounding areas this year.

Wondering who invented the family-friendly corn maze tradition? Maize Adventure credits Earl Beal with creating the first full-size corn maze in Annville, Pennsylvania, in 1993.

“Beal’s original design was inspired by his father’s work designing mazes for a local amusement park called Knoebels Amusement Resort. He wanted to share this experience with others, so he created a large-scale version of the maze at his farm in Pennsylvania,” Maize Adventure reported.
