SAN ANTONIO – You've got to try this: a sugar skull maze!

New this year at the Circle-N-Maze is a nearly six-acre maze in the shape of a sugar skull. The maze opens Friday, October 5 and includes three miles of trail with both a small and large maze.

Circle-N-Maze is on the far East Side on the back 80 acres of Circle N farm, just off Dry Hollow Rd.

There’s also a huge pumpkin patch, picture stations, a petting zoo with baby animals, hay bales to climb and games to play. And if you want to “get lost” in the dark, there's special “Lights Out” hours .

You’ll also find multiple vendors and food trucks so you can eat and shop!

Tickets are $10, $7 for seniors and kids under two are free. More at

Dia de los Muertos and the sugar skull tradition can be traced back over 3,000 years to the Aztec culture. On October 31st, many families who celebrate Dia de los Muertos will head to the grave of their ancestors to pay homage. Sugar skulls are just as their name describes, sugar that is made into a skull shape. Families will often write the name of deceased ancestors on these sugar skulls, and decorate them beautifully. Many have stripes and swirls of bright color, made of icing.
