MANALAPAN, N.J., Sept. 11 (UPI) -- A New Jersey farm operator said his 10-acre corn maze carries a Super Bowl theme and a text messaging-based trivia game to give hints to lost wanderers.

Tim Stockel said his Happy Day Farm in Manalapan -- which operated a popular New Jersey-themed maze when it first opened last fall -- said this year's Super Bowl-themed maze will run for six weekends, Sept. 21 to Oct. 27, reported Wednesday.

"We couldn't call it 'Super Bowl' because it's trademarked so we changed it to 'The Big Game,'" Stockel said. "I thought it was a great way to honor New Jersey because this is basically going to be the only time we have a Super Bowl."

Stockel said the maze will feature football trivia questions for visitors to answer via text for hints on how to proceed in the maze. He said those braving the labyrinth will also receive maps with the farm's phone number in case they end up lost.
