What exactly is a corn maze anyway? Corn mazes are giant puzzles that are created through rows of grown corn. Paths are cut out of the corn rows to create an intricate design that is simultaneously a challenging maze with dead-ends and tricky pathways. The goal is for visitors to challenge themselves to find their way through the winding paths and make their way through the maze in its entirety. Corn mazes are designed in a variety of sizes depending on each individual farm’s acreage. The difficulty level differs as well. Typically, a corn maze can take from 30 minutes to a couple of hours to complete. Sounds like some super autumn entertainment, right?!?
Here are some important things to keep in mind before you go. It is important to note that many corn mazes also have haunted and spooky versions for teenagers and adults. It is advised to go to the corn maze during the daytime if you are looking for kid-friendly fun because corn mazes that offer a haunted version typically open at dusk. Many corn mazes do not accept credit cards so be sure to bring cash. Some corn mazes offer discount coupons through their websites or Facebook pages. Make sure to check individual websites for admission fees, extra activities that are offered, and more information on specific questions you may have.
The following list is alphabetized by county so you can find a corn maze near you. Haunted maze times are noted (if they are offered) in addition to the regular corn maze. If the information has been publicized, you will also find the designs of some of the mazes noted below. Keep in mind that some corn mazes will be closed in inclement weather so please plan accordingly. Remember that days and times are subject to change, and be sure to check on the best routes because some roads may still be closed due to the recent floods.
