Haunted Corn Maze at Sauvie Island

Some people like getting chased around by a guy with a chain saw and some people don’t.  A group of WSU Vancouver students and their friends went to the haunted corn maze on Sauvie Island and got chased by a guy with a chain saw to celebrate Halloween.

The corn maze spans four acres and took most Cougs about 30 minutes to complete. The maze was filled with actors in spooky costumes, some carrying chainsaws and wearing bloody masks. Those who bought tickets through OSI only paid $5 for the night. Cougs filled the maze with laughs and, of course, screams.

Several students, however, found the group entrance to be difficult and confusing. Some arrived at 7:30 p.m. and found it awkward to maneuver through the long line to reach the front gathering point. Even those who waited in the line, though, reconnected with fellow Cougs at the bonfire afterward. Despite some confusion, several students expressed that events like the Haunted Corn Maze  make WSU Vancouver student life enjoyable and inexpensive.

“Some of the best parts of college have little to do with time spent in class or behind a book, and more to do with the breaks spent with friends between,” said David Choi. Choi appreciates the recreational activities that WSU Vancouver has to offer,, and said, “The night’s excitement and laughter is the reason I call WSU Vancouver my home. It was a great success, and something I greatly look forward to next year.”

Students were invited to a bonfire with snacks upon completion of the corn maze. Freshman Kira Swenson thought the bonfire was entertaining. She did not enter the maze with the WSU group, but enjoyed regrouping with fellow Cougs after going through the corn.

“I haven’t had a whole lot of opportunities to meet people in a non-academic environment yet, and sitting down with s’mores and a fire was a great way to relax and chat,” said Swenson.

Hayley Frahm  retold her experience in the haunted corn maze. “I enjoyed the maze and didn’t freak out too much when the chainsaws came out.” she said. Frahm was glad that she went and will be seeking out more WSUV events in the future.
