Greendale Acres Corn Maze

I have visited Science World recently, and have already immersed myself in their new T.rex feature exhibit, so it is great to be able to transition from that to this new attraction in Chilliwack.

Much of the facts mentioned in this post is sourced from the press release, to ensure accurate reporting. All the commentary and photos are my own.

As taken from the press release, Science World is excited to announce that it has partnered with Greendale Acres in Chilliwack, to launch their 24th Corn Maze. This year, Science World is behind the design of the 12 acre corn maze, which boasts a giant T.rex. This is to coincide with their T.rex, the Ultimate Predator exhibit; presented by RBC and White Spot Restaurants. This is on at the geodesic dome until February 2023. For the review of that, please click the link below.

This year’s maze makes the connection between the prehistoric dinosaur and the common farm found chicken. Both of whom share similar bone structure. Therefore making chickens living members of the dinosaur group: Theropoda.

The maze is an interactive adventure, where maze-goers must complete 12 T.rex themed questions curated by the Science World team, in order to escape. Participants can choose the family-friendly short maze which takes approximately 15-20 minutes, or the longer more challenging maze which takes 30-40 minutes to complete.

The maze has been open since Saturday, August 13th, 2022 with a celebration kick off that included live entertainment and a concert. We were not able to attend on the day, but were now visiting this week day early morning, in hopes of having the maze all to ourselves.

I travelled down with Joyce of @vanfoodies and Diana of @foodologyca, both of whom love puzzles and believed we would have no trouble escaping this man made obstacle. I was a little more skeptical. The following is our account and some photos to give you a better idea of the attraction. You weed yourself through the maze, picking to travel either left, right or centre. There are dinosaur themed clues to help you, if you guess them correct.

For those planning to spend the day snacks and beverages are available for purchase. Like hot dog, burgers, and smores kits. With their lavender fields they are serving lavender lemonades.

And also have strawberry pie screamers to help guests cool done, along with plenty of ice cream options.

And only available on the weekends, they have buttered corn; because Chilliwack is known for their sweet corn that is in season this time of year, and you are at a corn maze.

And once you have completed the maze, there are other attractions to keep the whole family busy. From posing in photo ops, playing with the water tunnel, climbing wall, or full playground; and riding all the various farm equipment.

And as a farm, they also host several barnyard creatures including, goats, rams, chickens, turkeys, and a lama.

This is a fun family friendly activity and one of the first corn mazes now open for the season. A maze where the corn is still in the cob and on the stalk. I have visited other such mazes, where the crop was not so abundant, more towards the end of the season; and as a result there were gaps in the maze that you could look through or cross at, which really took away from the experience. This definitely was a more fulsome corn maze experience, as how it should be enjoyed.
