Consumers love corn mazes. Fall agritourism destinations feature them as a staple attraction to bring people out to the farm. So what if you had a corn maze you could take to any event, whether on or off the farm? That’s the inspiration behind this corn-themed tilt table game.
It’s not exactly like a real corn maze, no. But it is a maze with corn-themed graphics and info, so we’re sticking to that description.
Originally, we designed this game for South Carolina Farm Bureau’s elementary school programs. The SCFB team needed activities that could keep part of the class occupied while the other kids toured a display area. The tilt table game has space for up to four kids to play at once, so it fit the bill nicely.
The top of our tilt table game is a maze where the goal is to move a golf ball from the edge into the middle. Players take one of the four handles around the edge. Then, they cooperate to tilt the table until the ball rolls in the right direction.
The maze table is mounted on gas springs, allowing it to tilt easily in 360 degrees. You might be surprised how quickly the table responds, in fact!
An Exhibit Farm game wouldn’t be complete without some educational aspect. And this corn-themed tilt table game is no exception. In the paths between the maze walls, you’ll find trivia about corn and its uses. That way, players can learn while having fun.
Using the Corn-Themed Tilt Table Game
Although we designed it for a kid’s height, this game can be fun for both kids and adults. Just because our maze’s pattern is simpler than a real corn maze doesn’t mean moving the ball through it is easy! But neither is it too hard for anyone to complete.
You can set up the tilt table game both indoors and outdoors. Stabilizing feet allow it to stand independently. And just in case you need to, we send along pegs to stake it into the ground.
