Four Epic Corn Mazes That Are Worth Visiting This Fall
Classic fall fun includes taking trips to apple orchards, pumpkin patches, and, dare we say, exploring a corn maze. We know what you're thinking: Corn mazes sound terrifying but we're here to tell you they can also be really fun. Plenty of corn fields turn into life-size labyrinths this time of year, but some are breaking new ground. Here are spots where getting lost is the whole glorious point.
At Treinen Farm (pictured above) in Lodi, Wisconsin, hidden mailboxes hold fragments of a map that guide visitors along endless twists and turns. Alan Treinen (the 200-acre farm has been in his family for three generations) and his wife Angie design and create the maze, which they estimate takes visitors 45 minutes to complete.
Denver Downs Farm
Look for smart-code-enabled map checkpoints among the stalks at the 140-year-old Denver Downs Farm in Anderson, South Carolina, to track your time. This year's maze theme is "Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Moon Walk."
Queens County Farm
Who says you have to be in the country to enjoy a corn maze? The Amazing Maize Maze, located in the Queens County Farm Museum in New York City, takes visitors through 3 acres of interactive puzzle-solving fun. This year, the maze is the shape of the unisphere—the borough's most iconic symbol. Bonus: On October 12 and 19, visitors have the chance to make their way through the maze at night.
