General Tips!

  • Phone ahead for patch and maze conditions. Some attractions may  not be operating due to wet weather. You don't want to go on a day when your favorite won't be avilable.
  • Clothing: These are outdoor events and therefore weather affects everything! Dress appropriately for the day's weather. Wear proper head (sun protection) and foot gear.  You may want to wear old athletic shows in case you encounter any muddy areas!
  • Allergies: Corn and honey bees may pose a problem for some folks.
  • Nighttime activities: Bring a flashlight with fresh batteries for the nighttime mazes. Some mazes rent flashlights or the kids can buy glowsticks. Bring some warm clothes in case it's cold.
  • Strollers: Some mazes and pumpkin patches are stroller and wheelchair friendly (under ideal conditions), but many are not, so check the weather and call ahead. Remember the maze can go for miles, too far for little legs. It may be a good idea to bring a toddler backpack or wagon for the little ones.
  • Claustrophobic?: Corn maze paths are generally 5 to 15 feet wide and there are usually "flaggers" looking for waving flags at all times. A cell phone or walkie talkie is handy if you lose your friend.
  • Other tips
    *Bring a water container with you.
    *Take lots of pictures.
    *A poncho or a small umbrella could be a real lifesaver if it starts to rain
    *Have a race with prizes. Mazes and pumpkin carving make great team building exercises
