Straw vs. Corn Maze
The Straw Maze is built with over 1000 straw bales and is a very unique experience, different from any other Halloween activity, more challenging than Corn Mazes and scarier than than a haunted house. Straw Mazes are built with towering walls separated by short bursting pathways that send Straw Maze explorers probing for the only passageway out! The Straw Maze is built on 1 to 2 acres. Although its size is dwarfed by corn mazes, the average time to complete The Straw Maze is 45 minutes to 1 hour, nearly the same time it takes to complete a corn maze. Most participants prefer this because it provides the same amount of difficulty in 1/10th the walking distance. The Straw Maze is difficult because of narrow pathways, solid shear walls that you can’t see or pass through, and sharp oftentimes undetectable paths. The Straw Maze is lit well enough to be safe, yet entices silhouettes and movement dancing down unexplored, unknown hallways of straw. Try something new this Halloween season and get Lost in The Rexburg Straw Maze!

Corn Mazes have been around for quite some time. The biggest Corn Maze ever built, labeled by The Guinness Book of World Records was in California, the entire Corn Maze covered 40 acres, but the average sized Corn Maze is actually 15-20 square acres. Oftentimes, Corn Mazes can be long and drawn out, requiring excessive walking distances. The main difficulty comes from long extended pathways that offer few alternative routes and lengthy straight-aways. Most Corn Mazes are well lit with pathways about 8 feet wide and can sometimes be haunted or create a haunting feeling while going through at night. The different paths through the Corn Maze can sometimes be divided by only a small wall of corn stalks, making it easy to jump from one path to another or see your way out. Corn Mazes can be a fun activity if you are up for the same old thing and you want to walk forever, but this fall season come out to The Rexburg Straw Maze and Get Lost before Halloween.
