If you think you’ve seen everything Barbie-fied, here’s a new expression of our universal love for Barbie: A Barbie corn maze. Yes, the Northeastern fall tradition is going full-on Barbie at Happy Day Farm this fall, as part of the Manalapan, New Jersey farm’s annual Fall Festival. 

The Barbie corn maze theme was planned and cut months ago, long before Barbie’s billion-dollar success. The corn maze is 10 acres with two parts: a short, 15-25 minute path, as well as a larger part for maze enthusiasts, which can take about 45 minutes to 1 hour to rove through, or longer if you’re eager for a perfect Instagram moment in the Barbie corn maze.  

Guests receive a map prior to entering the maze as a way to navigate their way across the corn maze. 

The farm team built and painted several photo ops at the farm for summer visitors, to celebrate Barbie and get folks excited for the first-of-its-kind corn maze. Through August 27, guests can sit on hot pink loungers in fields full of flowers, pose in a lifesize Barbie doll box in a sunflower field, watch a Barbie pink tractor do its thing, hang out in a hot pink phone booth and experience more pink-ified farm experiences. 

Happy Day Farm is known for its elaborate themed corn mazes each year since 2012. Previous themes include a Super Mario corn maze, New Jersey celebrities, the Super Bowl and Curious George. 

The Barbie corn maze opens on September 10, at Happy Day Farm’s Fall Festival which runs through October 30. Daily hours are 10am - 5pm, with last entry at 4pm. Tickets to Happy Day’s Fall Festival are $25, Friday- Sunday, and must be pre-booked online. On Mondays, tickets are $21, cash only, and sold at the door. No pets are allowed at Happy Day Farm.
