Don't get flustered or 'corn-fused' as folks at the Lowe Family Farmstead say. Sure, this 18-acre challenge is certainly tricky, but who wouldn't want to venture through a corn field designed with Idaho's natural gemstones in mind? (Fear not: A mini maize is available for those in your crew with little legs.) Be sure to stick around for the pumpkin patch, flower field, candy cannon, and potato sack slide.
There's a reason why movies like Children of the Corn, The Shining and even Signs still scare the heebee-jeebies out of us, even after multiple rewatches. The thought of getting lost in a multi-acre labyrinth, surrounded by 10-foot-plus corn stalks, facing miles of winding paths and the prospect that you might be lost forever... Yup, that'll get your heart pumping.
Thankfully though, the best and biggest corn mazes in America are less Stephen King and more Mark Twain. We’ve rounded up the coolest corn mazes across the country, each of which earns its place in the sun for anything from intricate designs to spooky Halloween happenings. From Indiana’s Exploration Acres (which has four mazes built over 20 acres of farmland) to the Great Vermont Corn Maze (New England’s largest corn maze), or even Connecticut’s Ekonk Hill Turkey Farm (an especially kid-friendly destination), these labyrinths are suited for family outings and adult exploration alike.
No matter where this fall season takes you, there are plenty of fall foliage and pumpkin patches to keep you busy too. Plus, the best haunted Airbnbs, eeriest ghost towns, and most elaborate cemeteries in the US are not to be missed either.
