Corn Maze Trivia
Ready to make your question sheet? Create questions for the Adventure Maze (Scarecrow Bowl) or the Impossible Maze. Or, create different questions for both mazes! Please note that The Impossible Maze is the only maze open at night.
Group leaders, let your corn maze adventure take a whole new twist that is customized for your group at Skelly's! Try Maze Master Trivia. Whether you are bringing a class on a field trip, scout troops on a maze adventure, a church group, a company picnic, or just a big group of family or friends, you can use customized trivia questions that you create to make your adventure extra special. As your group navigates through the corn maze, they can answer multiple choice questions about one of our premade topics, or you can create your own questions. If they choose the right answer to a question, they will advance through the maze in the right direction. If they answer incorrectly, they will head for a dead end or in the wrong direction.
Maze Master Trivia is great for groups because you can customize it specifically for your group. Scouts can create questions about Scouting topics (or choose from our many premade Scouting questions), church groups can review current topics or just fun Bible trivia, and companies can create questions to make office training more exciting. Just enter twelve multiple choice questions on our website, and hit print to generate your unique maze trivia card. Make enough copies for everyone in your group and bring them with you on your visit. Get more ideas at www.mazetrivia.com/howitworks.php.
How it Works for Group Members
- As your group members enter the maze, you will pass out their question card complete with twelve questions and answers.
- When group members come to each of the numbered checkpoints in the corn maze, they will read the corresponding question on their card. For example, the group members come to checkpoint #1. They will then look at their card and read that question #1 is, "Who was the first president of the United States?" Then, they will look at their answers. "Left: George Washington, Right: Abraham Lincoln." If they think it is Abe, they will head to the right and end up in a dead end because their answer was wrong. But if they answer George Washington, they will head to the left and be headed towards checkpoint #2.
- So, correct answers help them navigate the maze, and it can also be a fun way to learn or review.
How it Works for the Leader (You)
- Creating your question sheet is easy. First, it is probably best to write your questions in a separate document as a backup. Each question will need the question, the correct answer, and up to two incorrect answers.
- Once you have your questions, you need to get them to match up with the right way to go in the maze. Luckily, the Maze Master takes care of all the hard work for you. Since he knows the maze by heart, just tell him the questions, right answers, and wrong answers, and he will generate your question card for you. To enter your questions, visit the maze master. Select if you will be doing our Adventure Maze (family maze) or The Impossible Maze (the harder maze and night maze). Just enter your questions in the form and click "View Printable Sheet" at the bottom when finished.
- If you will be using a premade set of questions from our site, just select from one of these sets of questions instead of entering your own.
- Once you have finished entering questions, be sure to to click "View Printable Sheet". Your question card will automatically generate. Make sure you print your card. Your card does not get sent to us, and we have no way of printing it. You must print or make copies of your card for each group member and bring them with you on your trip.
Special Note for Teachers
Most field trips only walk through half of the maze due to time constrictions for the field trip. Some groups visit checkpoints 1-6, while others visit 7-12. Due to possible last minute scheduling changes, we cannot guarantee which checkpoints your group will visit. Some larger groups may even be split between both. To give your group the same experience, just enter each question twice: once for questions 1-6 and once for questions 7-12.
Do we have to use trivia with the maze? No, but it makes your adventure more fun for your group, and it can be relevant to things about your group.
What if I am bringing my family? Do I really have to create my own trivia? We do have a few sets of fun trivia for the general public to use in the Impossible Maze. Our family Adventure Maze already has some fun and friendly scarecrows for you to find instead of using trivia. If you are bringing a group, we encourage you to create your own questions or print a card from our premade questions for your group members because otherwise groups quickly deplete our supply of trivia cards.
Where do we get our printed cards? You must create and print your own question cards before arriving at our farm. We do not have access to cards you create.
If we get every answer right, does that mean we will never get lost? No, there are about 40-50 decision points (intersections) in the maze where you could go the wrong way. However, there are only 6 questions in each half of the maze. These are located at the most major intersections. In the Impossible Maze, some of our checkpoints are hidden on paths that are not main throughways. However, each trivia will help lead you to the next checkpoint so you can find them all.
What is the cost? Maze Master Trivia is free for any Skelly's Farm Market visitor!
What is the recommended age? The concept of asking someone a question could apply to any age, but children in kindergarten on up to adults can all have fun with trivia. For young children, it may be best to just give the card to leaders and they can verbally ask the students the questions.
