The Midwest is known for their abundance of corn, and by default – Corn Mazes! Once the harvest season begins many farmers create mazes for families to explore, and what better way to enjoy the autumn season than being outside with your family. Corn mazes can be fun, challenging and a bit of an adrenaline rush. Check out our favorite activities and corn mazes throughout the Midwest!
Family Race - Grab the kids (and maybe some of their friends) and split up into teams to create some friendly competition. The first team through the maze wins caramel apples and bragging rights!
Scavenger Hunt - Many corn mazes have specific designs that you can use to your advantage. Hide miscellaneous prizes and directions in the maze for your family members to find. If the maze shape is an animal, use directions like “You’ll find this prize in the tail of the maze.”
Haunted Corn Maze - Some corn mazes have a “Haunted Corn Maze” closer to Halloween, so grab your braver family members and prepared to be scared!
