Sever's Corn Maze
Giant corn mazes have caught on as seasonal attractions around the country -- they crop up in late summer and are all but gone by November. Sever's Corn Maze in Shakopee is no exception, but its mazes are huge and complex, and all the extra fixin's add to the festivities.
Since their first commercial corn maze in 1997, Sever and Sharon Peterson have constructed more and more elaborate patterns in their fields. In prior years, Sever's Corn Mazes incorporated a sinking Titanic outline, a map of the United States, a map of the world, election year designs, and a safari. In 2006, the maze theme was an Egyptian Sphinx and pyramids.
Augmenting the main maze is a smaller maze constructed from hay bales. In 2006 there was also live music, an exotic animal exhibit, a soothing "Corn Pit," and two pumpkin slingers for firing pumpkins at a cartoon target of Sever himself.
