This year’s corn mazes are in full swing with people getting lost in the Boise State Bronco-theme “30 Years on the Blue” at Linder Farms and in Jimmy Fallon’s face at The Farmstead.
Every year, Linder Farms owners Randy and Sherrie Feist create their maze as a tribute to Boise State football. You’ll also find a pumpkin patch, pony rides, a petting zoo, zipline course, mechanical bull rides and a climbing wall.
On the scary side, Linder’s haunts — “Trail of Terror” and “Zombie Acres” — are combined for “2016 Zombie Quest: Journey Through the Corn.” You travel through the maze being chased by zombies until you reach the paintball area and fend off the attack. It happens any time the maze is open but it gets scarier at dark. $13 additional.
5 to 10 p.m. Fridays; 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturdays; and 5 to 9 p.m. Mondays-Thursdays through Monday, Oct. 31. (Open at noon Thursdays and Fridays, Oct. 6-7, 20-21, 28), 7165 S. Linder Road, Meridian. Farm admission: $5 Fridays-Saturdays, $4 Mondays-Thursdays, free for 3 and younger. Corn maze: $6 general, $3 children 4-11 additional. Half price on Tuesdays and every day for military families. LinderFarms.com.
