Gather all your friends for some shrieks, scares and mazes during Boise State Night at Linder Farms.
On Saturday, Oct. 26 the Student Union is hosting this spooky event to celebrate the spirit of Halloween. What better way is there to celebrate than with a Bronco corn maze and a “Trail of Terror”?
This event is open to all Boise State students, faculty and staff for discounted prices. Students may purchase tickets to the corn maze for $5 and $10 for the “Trail of Terror.” Faculty and staff may also purchase tickets for the discounted price of $7 for the corn maze and $11 for the “Trail of Terror.”
Along with the discounted tickets the Student Union Building (SUB) is also offering free transportation for those who are interested, although it is not mandatory. Buses will be leaving from the SUB at 6:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. on the 26th.
To sign up, contact Melinda Lewis, the program coordinator and Games Center manager, or you can also sign up at the info desk in the SUB.
“There are a lot of groups, student organizations, and residence halls that are interested in doing a group outing with it so I’m hoping that we get a lot of participation from those groups,” Lewis said. “But I’d love to see people just get together with a group of friends and go.”
Tickets can be used at anytime this season at Linder Farms; the corn maze is open all day but the “Trail of Terror” opens at dark. Linder Farms also has a pumpkin patch, hayrides, a petting zoo, pumpkin slingshot and many more fun holiday attractions. This is the first time that Boise State is having this event and if the event is successful it is likely that the tradition will be continued for years to come.
The maze itself has the Bronco logo in its midst for the fifth straight year.
“The idea behind it is giving students the opportunity to get together and have a good time and go to a place that supports Boise State and has this corn maze that represents us; it’s really just made to be a fun event,” Lewis said.
“I really like being scared; that’s like one of the most fun parts of Halloween,” said Melinda Smith, junior communication major.
So prepare to get your scare on and invite all of your friends to Boise State night at Linder Farms. Its sure to be a ghoulish good time.
