With everything going on, now seems like a perfect time to lose yourself in a corn maze.  It’s a great way to refocus your thoughts and escape for a few hours. From the Berkshires to southeastern MA, it’s only a short drive to one of these great mazes.

C&C Reading Farm

Things will be a little bit different this year at the farm. Activities include a 1/4 acre kiddie corn maze with Spookley the Square Pumpkin story book trail; a 2 1/2 acre acrea featuring a “Walk through the Stalks” one-way cornfield trail surrounding a large field of sunflowers, plus pre-picked sunflowers, pumpkins, and more available for purchase at the farm stand. Tickets must be purchased on line. Tickets are available in 45 minute blocks and will be limited to 50 tickets per block. Visit their website for more info. 175 East Central St., West Bridgewater.

Davis Mega Maze

Opening September 19. Davis Mega Maze is designed to be the world’s best corn maze and can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 3 hours (or more) to complete. It is both a physical and mental challenge.

This year’s maze encompasses 8 acres of corn and almost 3 miles of puzzling pathway networks. It offers more fun and opportunities than any other maze and appeals to any type of gamer! Adventure seekers can try to tackle some or all of the games located inside the maze.

If you get frustrated or have little ones, our helpful Maze Masters can give you directions. They direct you to the next fun Adventure Zone.  These include the hammer bells, the field goal kick,  slingshots, end goal slide and a dozen other games. There are many surprises and photo-ops – INSIDE the maze itself – that will test your mental and physical abilities. 142 Redstone Hill, Sterling.

Hanson’s Farm

Tom and Matt’s Excellent Adventure. Try to find your way in their fascinating maze or just relax and enjoy the beautiful farm! Fun for the whole family. Enjoy hayrides, picnic in the giant tent, pick your own fruits, vegetables and flowers. Don’t miss the October haunted hayrides! 20 Nixon Road, Framingham.

Marini Farm

Explore the ‘trails’ cut through thousands of living cornstalks in their 8 acre corn maze.

The corn maze is not your typical walk through the stalks – it is educational and interactive. There are 18 stations strategically placed throughout the maze with answers to a game sheet that you will be given before entering. They don’t give you clues…you need to find your way out on your own! You will be able to track your progress through the maze by the amount of answers you find on your game sheet. A finished game sheet is a finished maze! Average time to complete the corn maze is 1.5 hours — so put on your sturdy shoes or sneakers and come enjoy the experience! For younger adventurers, they also have a 1 acre, 20 minute “mini maze”. 259 Linebrook Rd., Ipswich.

Mike’s Maze

Visitors to Mike’s Maze will encounter activities, games, and amusements to entertain the entire family. Located on a working farm at the foot of Mount Sugarloaf, visitors enjoy gorgeous views of the New England foliage.

Every year they concoct a brand new maze, along with themed games that will challenge you to solve puzzles and problems, and lead you on your exploration through the corn! Be prepared to laugh and learn as you wander the 8-acre maze, encountering installations and trivia at every turn!

While you’re here, you can take part in many Attractions; ride on a horse drawn wagon, fire the mighty potato cannons, pick out your own Halloween pumpkin, and stay for lunch at the Corn Cafe, serving farm fresh food all day.

Young kids will delight in the larger-than-life playground featuring a giant double drain-tube slide, a jump pad, tractor tire jungle gym, and giant games! Older kids (and adults!) can enjoy a race around the track in pedal carts at Dave’s Derby. And folks love to check out the view of the maze from the perspective of their giant walk-in camera obscura! 23 South Main St., Sunderland.
