Have you heard about the latest maze outside Saskatoon? YXE Corn Maze is located less than an hour from Saskatoon. They are neighbours to the Wolf Willow Winery and Camp Wolf Willow.
Get lost in the corn maze and leave some time to check out the pumpkins, sunflowers and gorgeous view. My son and I took the drive on a gorgeous Sunday to see if we could conquer the maze!
My son decided to go dressed as a superhero. He loved his choice at the time but told me he wasn’t so sure of it when he looked at the photos later. I think he did a fine job saving the world, one dead end at a time. We checked in when we arrived and were told about the extra game to look for signs and underlined words along the rows. This was actually a very good game for my son because he’s just learning to read and could spell out the words for me.
This is our second corn maze this year. Last year, we went through a lot but didn’t make it through all of them. We went into this one knowing we wouldn’t give up. Nothing would stop us from making it all the way through.
The view from the maze was pure Saskatchewan. Huge blue skies, sunflowers growing from behind the maze and of course LOTS AND LOTS of corn. As we made our way through, we passed a few happy families and at times, they passed us again. I think we did pretty well and the numbered signs helped us figure out if we were going backward or forward.
We were very excited when we found the exit. Finally! We made it through the corn maze. We had a blast doing it as well. The super boy and super mom made it out. As we went through the exit, we found a pumpkin patch. We spent a bit of time looking around the patch to find some perfect pumpkins for our porch.
We grabbed a few that we couldn’t leave behind and headed back to the start of the maze. We also picked a few sunflowers. (These are all available for purchase). It was a nice addition to our journey through the wonderful YXE Corn Maze.
They have a great section to stop by and take some photos with your family. Of course, we stopped to take some. After we were done, we wandered around to see some of Wolf Willow as well. The restaurant was open (but has now closed for the season) so we checked that out along with the cool wooden ship for the kids to play on. The corn maze is enough for a wonderful day but we wanted to stretch our legs a little more before getting back in the car. We decided to walk down the trail to the river.
We were not disappointed. We walked all the way down, played in the sand and put our feet in the water. It was the perfect ending to a wonderful afternoon. I will never get bored when I’m surrounded by beautiful fall colours. Thank you YXE Corn Maze for giving us a wonderful day. We cannot wait to visit again.
