Looking for something eerily amusing and unique to do this fall? How about a visit to one of the nation’s most mind boggling corn field mazes? Find your way out with 8 of the best corn mazes in the U.S.
The Great Vermont Corn Maze
It won’t take much to rope you into visiting this masterpiece: 32-foot underground tunnel with 30-foot cabin cruiser that floats on top of the corn plants. A new maze design is introduced each year at this third-generation dairy farm in Danville, VT.
Kraay Family Farms
This family knows the art of building one hell of a maze and has been creating beautiful mazes at their farm in Alberta, Canada since 1999. Their corn field expertise is so on point that they earned the Guinness World Record for Largest QR code this year.
Happy Day Farm
They’ve got it all, boasting 10 acres of stunning maze designs and games to make this Manalapan, NJ farm a fun outing for the entire family.
Queens Country Farm Museum
This maze, located in Floral Park, NY, might be small compared to other major corn mazes at just 3 acres, but don’t laugh at it just yet. The carefully constructed bends and turns create a tricky and tight 45-minute challenge with clues planted in nine hidden mailboxes and special phones to seek help from staff.
Long and Scott Farms
With warm weather, you can enjoy this 10-year-old maze until December at Long and Scott Farms located in Mt. Dora, FL.
If you consider yourself to be a corn maze pro, then make sure to check out Richardson Farm in Spring Grove, IL. With four mazes wound together through 33 acres accompanied by 24 secret checkpoints and three wooden bridges, you’ll get your fill of maze craziness and corn!
Cool Patch Pumpkins
Located in Dixon, CA this maze is the largest corn maze in the world. Farmer brothers Matt and Mark Cooley started their maze at 15 acres in 2000 and over the years it has grown to an eyebrow-raising 53 acres. Can you handle it?
This Brookshire, TX farm utilizes an interesting concept where it urges visitors to bring cans of beans and corn for food bank donations. The maze, shaped into an image of Uncle Sam with a can of each on either side allows visitors to vote by picking a side via maze. The winning can food is announced in November.
