The annual corn maze that South Texas Maize puts on will open in September and the Texas hill country is getting excited about it. The corn maze is located at Graff 7A Ranch and will be open from September 19 until November 28th. In years past, the maze has paid homage to the San Antonio Spurs, and beloved San Antonio grocery chain H-E-B. This year, the maze is doing something different. It will spell out “God Bless America” and “Land of the Free”. There will also be symbols of a church, dove, fish, and praying hands.

This seven-acre maze is a fun and family-friendly tradition that has been going on for a long time. General admission hours are on Fridays from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm, Saturday from 10:00 am to 9:00 pm, and on Sundays from 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Tickets to get in cost $17.50 from ages 3-64, $12 for seniors that are 65 and older, and kids age two and under are admitted for free.

According to Graff 7A Ranch’s website, admission to the maze also includes a fun hayride, a MatterCorn Slide Mountain, Twin Cow Train, Cowboy Ken’s Kiddie Korral, Hay Bale Jump, Colin’s Cluckers, and unlimited jumping on two Corn Pop-Poppers, according to. For families who plan to go multiple times, or even with a large group, you can buy season passes.

A Graff 7A ranch official explains “It can take 30 minutes to an hour to find your way in and out of the maze, depending on how directionally challenged one is! We have all maze patrons go through a brief orientation prior to entering into the maze crop”. As summer winds down and fall starts up, many San Antonio residents take comfort in an annual, family-friendly tradition of spending time outdoors while sorting through the maze, zooming down the slide, and enjoying each other’s company.
